Malacca strait is mired with History from the time Portuguese set sail from Lisbon and landed here.
King Parameswara was the first exponent of the River when he established his petty principality on its Banks. This navigable strait played a vital role in the dominions of Dutch and British. The pristine river cutting across the city is a National treasure and well maintained. The Maritime Museum on the left bank is modelled on the legendary Portuguese ship that sank off its coast.
A trip to Malacca is not complete without a leisurely Boat ride on the River.
