Journey through the heart of the UNESCO heritage site giving you an exclusive riverscape view of the city. Best enjoyed in the evening, this river cruise promises a serene and captivating journey to the past.

The River That Flowed Through Time
Take a cruise through time in Malaysia’s most historic city, Melaka. Even before the beginning of the Melaka Sultanate in the 15th century, and through the years of foreign rule that occurred centuries after, the Melaka River flowed. It was there when the Portuguese built the A’ Famosa fort in 1511, when the Dutch erected the Stadthuys in 1888, and when the Japanese invaded Malaya in the Second World War.

The Melaka River was there to witness Independence from the British.

River Cruise Melaka

Its legacy still continues to flow till this day, in a period than the previous centuries. Contrary from what it was before as a vital trade route or a front to fend off invaders, the Melaka River is now home to the Melaka River Cruise.

This 45-minute boat ride cruising along the vintage Melaka River moves at a peaceful pace, allowing one to admire the breathtaking view of Melaka. It’s just one of things that travellers should not miss when visiting the state. From the modern local icons to rustic colonial landmarks, here are some of the things you’ll see on the Melaka River Cruise.

Melaka River Cruise

Historical Landmarks of Different Eras
Till today, infrastructure from Melaka’s colonial past still remains standing. As arguably Malaysia’s most historic state, the preservation of such buildings is important in ensuring that history is protected and serves as an acknowledgement of Malaysia’s significant past.

Today, many tourists who flock to Melaka make it a point to visit these historical landmarks. It’s no surprise, as Melaka City has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2008.

Some notable landmarks which you’ll be cruising by are the Stadthuys and Red Building established by the Dutch in 1888, the Church of St. Francis Xavier completed in 1856, and the Bastion Middleburg erected in 1660 to defend oncoming aggressors.

River Cruise Melaka

Melaka’s Modern Side
As Melaka began to develop forward, new establishments were constructed without the need of compromising on any historical site.

From this, Melaka transformed into a unique blend of old and new, an intriguing juxtapose of history and modernization. Since then, Melaka has evolved into a bustling state.

Of all the exciting new come-ups that Melaka has, be sure to look out for The Shore Shopping Gallery located right at the river bend, the newly installed Melaka Malay Sultanate Water Wheel – which is the first and largest watermill in Malaysia, and the Eye on Melaka – a Ferris wheel on the banks of the Melaka river.

A Different Perspective
It’s a different experience being in the crowd, and observing the crowd. Take the Melaka River cruise and see things from a different perspective. It is much less exhausting and it’ll allow you to serenely take in the sights and sounds as you cruise by. Idle away and gaze at the moving trishaws, the tourist crossing over bridges, and the picturesque shophouses as you spectate from a distance.

Iconic Bridges
Perhaps not known to many, Melaka has some of the most historic bridges in Malaysia. While they are not as grand or as large as the Golden Gate Bridge or the Brooklyn Bridge, they have very interesting stories behind them. There are a number of bridges along Melaka River, but some of which you should take note of is the:

Tan Kim Seng Bridge – This is the bridge that connects the Melaka Clock Tower area to Jonker Street. The bridge is named after a wealthy Peranakan businessman that contributed greatly to the community. The bridge was built in 1862, but was destroyed 80 years later in 1942 by the British. It was rebuilt and restored later on after World War 2 ended.

Pasar Bridge – This bridge was built during the Portuguese rule around the 1500’s, and it links Kampung Hulu to the Old Central Market.

Melaka Cruise

Chan Boon Cheng Bridge – This bridge links the west and east side of the Melaka river bank, but it isn’t best known for that. Instead, it’s known for its gruesome past. During the Japanese Occupation, Japanese soldiers used to place the heads of executed victims at the foot of the bridge to instil fear into the locals. So, watch your head.

Aesthetic Wall Murals
Be aesthetically pleased as you are treated with some of the most stunning wall murals you can find in Malaysia. Along the river, shop and restaurant owners have allowed their walls to be painted with bright, artistic murals. Many of these wall arts are giant illustrations depicting Malaysian culture and history – from Malaysian local delights, traders, and such. It’s truly one of those beautiful sights to see these vintage shophouses transform into a canvas, accentuating the importance of art in preserving Malaysia’s heritage.

Conclusion
The Melaka River Cruise is certainly a worthwhile trip for your visit to the historic city of Melaka. It is a river that is embedded in history and made this city a success in the first place. Popular with both local and international tourists, the journey is not difficult or strenuous, so it’s something that the whole family can do, from kids to seniors.

    I boarded the boat at night because the child liked to see the colorful lights. When a child is happy, for me it is a fun place.
    Thanks also to TC for assisting in purchasing tickets and correcting purchase errors.

    This is my 2nd time taking the river cruise. Compared to my 1st, this time no explaination on the Melaka history (about kg morten, melaka tree, etc) via recording tape (played while cruising) or by the boat driver. Just a plain ride 35mins back and forth. Breezy night is truly a saver.

    Saya rasa mungkin kebetulan jam 6.50 petang kami sampai cahaya senja menerangi awan, ketika kami menaiki bot jam 7 semuanya tampak sempurna masih belum gelap dan bot terus membelah sungai dengan sinaran lampu berwarna warni mengiringi perjalanan.. Pemandu yang cukup peramah buat kami lebih selesa..

    The trip itself was very enjoyable. Value for money. Clear narration of historicsl facts. However, getting there was not. We went to the Shore jetty to embark but found that it was closed and were then directed to Pengkalan Rama. With kids and the heat, that was troublesome.
