Hi vera

The cruise ship has a tender to drop you off at Melaka riverside quay which is at the heart of the city. From there, Jonker Walk and Studhuy (Dutch Square) are located respectively on both side of the river.

At entrance of Jonker Walk is the big red multi storey souvenir shop for local tibits, called San Shu Gong

Hi Veraclari

If you look at the map below, you could enlarge it to get an idea of the historic centre. The Ferry Jetty should be the drop off point for your ship tender. Walking along the river pavement inland direction, Dutch Square and the bridge to Jonker Walk is less than 5 minutes away.

www.melakaducktours.com.my/journey.html

Almost all attractions are clustered around Dutch Square, so many people can cover Melaka historic centre in 4 hours if there is no much stop in musuems in which there are many but only Cheng Ho, Baba House and Enthonology museum is worth a visit.
