Take a night cruise

The view is nicer at night, and the heat is bearable compare to afternoon cruise. A nice way to go around Malacca.

I went on a late weekday afternoon and no one else was in the queue. Thankfully the staff were nice to let me have the whole boat to myself :) I enjoyed the scenic, quiet ride.

Tried to go on the Melaka River cruise. Would not recommend it. It is a bit of a walk out of town and when we got there they had a boat ready to go. Checked with the ticket person if we could still make the boat who confirmed we could. However, after buying the tickets, the person loading the boat... More

We caught the 10pm boat from Jonker to the last stop. Took less than 10 minutes, no commentary and no reduction in price for a one way trip. Overpriced, better to walk.

The whole cruise ride will take you more than half an hour while there's nothing much to see. The audio introducing the river cruise and where we are heading was too soft that I missed most of the parts. Ticketing counter service is normal while for a family of 4, we were given 2 pkt of ice lemon tea &... More

The river has been cleaned up compared to 5 years back. Took cruise with 2 kids under 7 years old. A leisurely way to spend the evening especially in the night. The pre-recorded narration was informative. Beware of the splashes if you are seated at the front and another boat comes in the opposite direction. There are parts of the... More
