cancellation policy

Infrastructure from Melaka's colonial era is still in place today. Even today, over a longer length of time than the previous centuries, its legacy is still being felt. During this 45-minute boat ride, understand the history and the role the Melaka River played in it and witness the future with the modernization that has taken place.

As you cruise along the serene river, you will pass the Stadthuys and Red Building, which the Dutch built in 1888, as well as the 1856-completed Church of St. Francis Xavier. One will be able to see the Bastion Middleburg, which was built in 1660 to ward off approaching attackers.

Melaka underwent a remarkable transformation as new businesses were developed over time, creating an intriguing contrast between tradition and modernity. The Shore Shopping Gallery is situated next to these, precisely at the river's bend. Additionally, keep an eye out for the Eye on Melaka, a Ferris wheel located on the river's edge, and the Melaka Malay Sultanate Water Wheel, the country's first and biggest watermill. You will come across lovely bridges on this enjoyable river excursion. The Tan Kim Seng Bridge, which was first demolished and later rebuilt, will also be seen. Don't forget to see the Pasar and Chan Boon Cheng bridges. Last but not least, be sure to keep an eye out as you navigate along the river for artistic wall murals and paintings on the wall that contain many fascinating tales.
