If you're on a short holiday, river cruise will definitely help summarize the city a bit. You'll see a lot of interesting buildings and the price is affordable.

We were surprised there was such a cruise to see the back of what we saw along the roads. Very relaxing and nice feeling to see Malacca at night with the night lights and also the drawings on the walls of the shop houses.

We went for the river cruise at night. Very nice to see the city center at night, and the boat was clean. Good service as well.

The weather was just nice for a sunset cruise on this historic river, one of a kind experience for us. The beauty of this river is the surrounding building and architecture.

The malacca river has been cleaned up by the local authorities and nice walkways and bridges have been built along this scenic walk. The river boats go rather fast so it causes ripples in the water giving nice slushing sounds against the embankment.

Went on the river cruise but was not happy. The river was smelly and dirty along most stretches. A waste of a good tourist attraction.

Look for the Museum Samudera ... there's a lane on the right just before it ... take the lane and you can park there. You'll see the River Cruise Ticket booth and jetty from where you park
