“Nice, but they need to keep it clean”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

The river has gotten a little stinky since my last visit. I also saw a lot of trash in it. Otherwise, it can be nice to walk along the river to see the old buildings.

“smelly”
Reviewed May 4, 2014

We had the river cruise in the evening so it was cool and with lights coming up was quite nice.We enjoyed the river front view,But the main issue for a truely enjoyable experience was the state of the river it was so smelly and water looked really dirty

“Wonderful”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

You should experience Malaca river at night because it will be more enjoyable and breathtaking.

During daytime it's very hot as the weather here is averaging 30-34 degrees Celcius.

At night you can feel the wind blowing and resulted in cool temperatures which will make your journey more comfortable and definitely more enjoyable. At night, the colour of the lights from the street/house lamps will make the scenery more beautiful.

“Art by the river bank”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

I did not take the river cruise but decided to take a stroll along the river bank.

A lot of the buildings were covered with paintings grafiti style. So it turned out to be like walking along an art gallery.

Nice & peaceful.
