“Pleasant Malacca River Stroll”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

The Malacca River houses great sites for tourists at its banks.Shutter bugs would not miss the beautiful Ship, Korean Wheel, fort or the lovely condos along the river. A stroll in the evening or early morning is very refreshing and eye pleasing too. Take a cruise to enjoy the city attractions by the banks of the river! Had a great river view from hangout@jonker rooftop (Lookout - nice place to relax)!

“A different perspective of Malacca city.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

It was a refreshing perspective. Best really to do this at dusk as it is not only cooler . In addition to this the buildings along the embankment light up as it becomes dark adding to the charm of the vista. The only annoying detail is that the operator of the boat decided to have the recorded commentary on the return journey to the city as opposed to the start. No doubt this is probably because the journey was previously meant to have started at the upper end of the river then to end at the mouth of the Malacca
river. However it is disappointing to note the complacent attitude adopted in view of the changes. Listening to the commentary retrospectively, only lead to an anticlimax. A real shame

“cruise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 20, 2014

We had a river cruise along the Melaka River. It was very interesting to cruise along the river where one can see the night view of Melaka if you are there in the night.

“Malacca River”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2014

Some interesting views eg of the old buildings and the lights of the night but the river had an offensive smell (I assume from pollution) and the water at times splashed onto me on the boa.
