The cruise is a nice way to see Melaka. It is a 45-min cruise and you can stop along any of the stations. The river is clean and the ride is breezy. You can see restaurants, heritage hotels, bulidings with wall painted as you cruise

Student = RM10, Adult = RM18 Best view is at night. But it is boring for toddles. On the way back, they will explain the history along the river through audio. Overall not bad.
