We walked from the harbourfront up to just past the area near the Historic "Majestic Hotel" on one side of the river and then back on the other side. Really enjoyed the variety of historic, scenic and local housing "places" along the walk. A "tad" long...but worth it to us. And there were spots to stop for a drink or food...right on the river.

The walkway up the river is charming and has been well done, although there is not really a lot to see. However, after tackling the narrow roads of Melaka that lack pavements that can be used, it is great to able to walk in comfort for a relatively long way up the river on boardwalk that is immaculately kept.

You can enjoy walking by the Malacca River specially at night time when it has a gorgeous lighting all along the river

We took a river cruise (45mins there and back) to the spice garden with kids and it was a pleasant experience for an afternoon. Good value, clean boat, English commentary (limited detail though). Stroller parking, optional (blue screen) photo for groups. Taken past backs of buildings on Jonker's street which had been painted which was quite interesting and rather cool. Also saw traditional Malay village by the river which will be worth a visit as it looked very interesting. Opts to walk along both sides of the river too on the promenade (which was decently maintained and had varied views as it followed the river, 18km in total) - wasn't great for toddlers though as there was perhaps only a chain separately them from a dip in the river. Saw a 6' long monitor lizard swimming in the river so must be reasonably clean.

the river tour is great on a hot day but after visiting the bigger cities in south east asia this might be a tad "slow". Good relaxing way to take in Melaka though
