This a a very beautiful place to have a stroll. it is litted up at night. There are many beautiful bridges and murals on the old buildings. The whole stretch takes about 1.5 hours each way. it is safe and secure.

A great way to spend a late afternoon, a good walk along this picturesque river followed by a couple of chilled beers as the sun goes down.

Fascinating little details everywhere

Really vibrant. If you keep your eyes and ears open there are so many little quirks to discover. A whole range of whimsically-named hipster cafes, murals, and a great place to people watch - both on land and on the water as the boats go by.

Go in the evening for a nice walk.

By walking along the river at night you see a lot of little restaurants and bars, people sitting outside etc. Little lights everywhere and some music.

Beautiful walk under the scorching sun

Very cute walk and most could be done within a couple hours. It was very very hot, so every so often a pit stop is recommended, especially to get a refreshment.

Different vice day and night
Dec 2019 • Family
If I can only choose one thing to do in Melaka, this is probably it, walking along the river; one time in the morning and one time at night (is it still counted as one?). By day, take in the view of shop houses (and imagined about life once was) and the mural arts along the river showing the creativity of locals (there are many on both sides, so make a turn around). At night, the whole river was lighted up, full of bars and restaurants filled with people and noises. A great place to bar hop, enjoying drinks, food, live music, or simply watching people. Local people are quite friendly and kids are welcome everywhere.

Very interesting

Well worth a walk along the river, past the many little bars and shops. Some excellent street art on the buildings. Would recommend a walk here in the evening and a cold beer from one of the many bars.
