Its a nice thing i guess to have a river in the middle of a city. Adding to the features of the place. Go to one of the many resto or bars facing the river and enjoy the view there. Highly recommended.

Ride the river boat along this historical river and see the old and new, The backs of shops and houses painted with pictures of Melaka that tell stories of times gone by. Plants are neatly cared for and bridges are well looked after.
