It's great to be visiting Melaka River Cruise, cruising along the river at night, watching all the Kg Morten houses fill with light, seeing the painting. But, it kind of dull with the small spaces on the boat, the boat driver hard to attract the participant keep on doing noise.

We have been to Melaka many rounds and we always focus at the tourist spots visit by car or foot. This round we decided to explore the river cruise along Malacca River and it turns up to be a very exciting trip for us including the young children. This is an interesting way to view Melaka where you can see... More

We went cruise with family and my 3 years old daughter. It is good to explore famous Melaka River Walk without walking especially for old peoples. My daughter enjoy so much and environment is really fantastic.

Well, it is pretty cool to experience Melaka by boat in such humid days. The boat trip is every 30 mins. The best time to get on boat for taking photos or videos is at 7pm-7:30pm when it is in between day & night time.

Fall in love with Melacca since my first trip in 2014 and there are 3 more trips after that to this beautiful old city. And the most attraction I love most is the night cruise in the river, so romantic and beautiful!

We had the river cruise in the evening. Since we were in a big group, we have to pre-book. It was a pleasant ride. However, I wish the guide was more 'entertaining' in telling us about the history of the place. Along the river, there are a few enjoyable spots with very interesting history.

The trip was awesome and educational, there are option for single or return trip. It is best to go at late evening or night when the weather is much colder and the lights along the river is turned on.

We went in the later afternoon and it was a nice pleasant trip. Lots of bridges and interesting buildings along the river. There was commentary only on the way back and it was done in both English and Malay...didn't add much to the experience.
