Walking through the river, you can see a lot of activity from local people. I love the culture in here.

This is more than a river. Others may describe it as polluted, smelly and green but it’s all a matter of perspective. It also reeks of atmosphere, romance and history. You can walk both sides for mikes through Melaka and appreciate the changes, past, present...More

In about the past decade, they are able to make this River become one of the interesting tourist attraction, this river as river city, can be regarded as river well-maintained. At night, this place can serve as a means of entertainment to rilex with nightlife.

One of important activity I suggest a lot is seeing Melaka from this boat. the boat round in the river and you will enjoy the view of this historical and colorful city.

Melaka's top tourist attraction spot. 30 mins boat ride along the Melaka River. The water gives an unpleasant smell like a sewer smell.

Look for the Museum Samudera ... there's a lane on the right just before it ... take the lane and you can park there. You'll see the River Cruise Ticket booth and jetty from where you park
