“Dirty! Dirty! Dirty!”
Reviewed 13 August 2014

I don't understand why they have no sense of hygiene and cleanliness at all. Rubbish are accumulated along the river bank and nothing is done. Ew!

“Limited boat services”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

We had read that you can hop on and hop off the riverboats and also could use the boats to visit Kampung Morden. No chance, no hop on hop off and no stopping at Kampung Morden. Don't bother, walk it instead, much better

“nice!”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

The river cruise jetty is just next to the flor de la mar boat. The best time of taking the malacca river cruise will be around 6:15pm, the weather starts to cool down, and still bright enough to see the sights along the river. And you get to see the beautiful lights at the end of the rides too as it's starting to get dark. If you have young kids, they will definitely love it!

“Boat Trip”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

I wasn't really expecting that much but to honest until you hit the river cruise you haven't seen that much of Melaka. I was cheap and really worth the effort. A beautiful view of the town from the water.

“The best experiences in Malacca.”
Reviewed 8 August 2014

You can view lot of best place in the old Malacca town by a boot ride. The best time are between 7 to 9 pm where all the light by the river side and the shop/house are on. The water may not be very clean at dry season. it always very crowed at week end and week day.
