I choose the trip to Melaka to see a little part of Malaysia. The city has not to many to offer; only the graffiti lovers have the chance to see old wet buldings painted in many colours.

We enjoyed it so much we went twice, in the day time and again at night. It goes past many little cafes and lots of interesting murals.

River cruise takes you around some central parts of Melacca. Boats are ok but despite warning signs, they don't make passengers wear life jackets. You get some nice views of the city including some murals and with night lighting it looks nice. Audio tour could...More

A nice way to see Melacca. It lasts 40 mins. We went around 3pm. The boat unfortunately was packed. Everyone seemed to be squeezed in. 40 people on one boat do seem a lot on a hot day. The cruise itself was great. Pass by...More

I never expect that the 40-minute (RT) Melaka River Cruise will turn into one of my memorable rides. The ticketing and waiting area near the Maritime Museum was not that appealing and (oh you can purchase just one-way ticket.) Anyway, when the cruise started, we...More

First time trying the river cruise. The price is reasonable, they even have student discount. The whole journey from 1 jetty to another is approximately 40 minutes. Quite boring and be prepared for the awful river smell that smells like a lake.

Since you will be there on weekend, crowd should be expected. Best time to be there would be 7pm when all the light along the route are on but it when a lot of people would be. Try 6pm - 630pm where usually there would... More

Hi Sam, I recommended you to book it early so that it gonna make it smooth on your trip. You can seek for better parking at Apartment Tun Sri Lanang rather then having to search for parking at the river cruise carpark.

The steps are not that difficult as they already prepare you the platform, it just depends on which starting point; Taman Rempah, Pirate Park or the Royal Custom Museum. It is more preferable to sit at the most front or... More
