The Melaka river cruise was a truly amazing experience. It reminds one of the Venice Gondolas. The cruise is along the Melaka river and is nearly 25 mins boat ride. Taken at sunset, it is a beautiful sight to see the enchanting city of Melaka with its historical buildings. Every building seems to tell us a story.

I was looking forward to this part of my time in Melaka. Unfortunately, my mood was pretty torn apart by an awful sales person at the front of the line. I was forced to sit in front of a green screen and have my photo taken. I said several times that I didn't want to have my photo taken (as... More

This was great. I wasn't expecting much but was very pleasantly surprised. Approx 45min round trip, but you get a view of the area from a very different angle. The art work on the buildings were fantastic from the boats. To keep kids entertained make them look out for the water monitor lizards that grow up to 2m long (that... More

The tour is really boring and i spent most of the time sleeping. Was a ideal time for me to take a nap after walking in the hot streets of melaka. the river is not natural and is made artificially and more looks like a artificial back water.

If you have an hour to spare, make sure you check out the Melaka River Cruise. It was a great way to see the town from a different perspective. I loved the beautiful,colourful artwork and Murals depicting the mix of cultures along the way. Also it serves as a reminder of the Portuguese culture that has influenced this town. Great... More

I have been on this river cruise twice. Once during the day and once during the night. Both were equally interesting! Daytime river cruising will allow you to see all the wall murals much clearer. I was amazed by how creative the muralist/painters are in creating those realistic looking art. It is definitely a challenge to catch on all the... More

Its best to start your ride from 7.15pm & later the riverbanks are beautifully light up when it gets darker.

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