Spent a nice 40 minutes cruising the river at Melaka. Nice trip, but commentary a bit sporadic and not in sync with trip! Worth the £6.00 (RM 18 each) each as lots to see, but feel they are missing a trick!

We did the cruise at night, so we got to see all the bright lights and graffiti-decorated houses at their best. At RM18 for foreigners this is a nice comfortable time-filler. Recommended.

The 45 minutes river cruise takes you around the city where you can see the beautifully colored houses and see the old streets and Malays neighbourhood.Entry fees 28 Rm.Best way to see the city.

Its a decent ride through the city, preferably during sunset. Not absolutely breath taking but fun nevertheless.

Pleasant. A must-do in Melaka, but nothing extraordinary compared to river cruises in other places in the world. Evening lights are quite nice, but also nothing extraordinary compared to city lights elsewhere.
