We found the activity to be a good diversion for the kids, albeit with a departure point that is a bit "out of the way" (i.e. not right next to Jonkers street), near the Maritime Museum. Not having been back to Malacca for close to...More

The river cruise is well worth doing - a comfortable trip and provides you with a different view of the town.

Lovely walk by Malacca River; cafes and places for drinks by the river too. Worthwhile to take a walk here, particularly in the early evening.

Scenic views, artwork and wildlife. It does smell a bit but it's normal. Would definitely recommend to talk a walk down the Riverside, good for a date or just a stroll with loved ones.
