    Art Work beside River
    First of all, drink watermelon juice with a nice view of the river. Few steps down to the river walk. Many boats crossing the river from time to time. Nice bridges and decorated walls both sides.

    Pretty average experience
    I have been trying to visit Malacca for many years now and finally made it. Perhaps I had too high expectations but it was a bit like a tourist theme park - all very clean and crowded with slightly ridiculous bicycle taxis blaring out tedious music and packs of package tourists being led around by guides. Not a place that I will be going back to.

    Nice place to go day and night. At night there are lots of bar with live bands. The walk at night are colorful and cooling as Malaysia is too hot and humid in the day. Do look out for the noisy colorful trishaws. Interesting place to go

It’s more of an upgraded Canal and not a river.
Night time they have lights installed at both sides and it looks good from a height.
River cruise is available and some walkway near it

The Malacca river was longer and much cleaner than I was led to believe.
Quite a lot of wildlife in and around the river , from otters to large monitor lizards.

It is a beautiful river with decorated bridges and restaurants, shophouses along the river. This river walk along the banks is highly recommended !

Malacca River is the heart of the city, and, by extension, the heart of the tourist experience of the city. The walkways are lined with shops, houses, monuments etc underlining the colourful heritage & history of the place.

Great experience walking alongside the river front with many shophouses with cafes and even a junkyard shop.

Come here at night and experience the nightlife come alive in Meleka. With many bars and restaurants. There is a river cruise too .

There was a refreshing breeze.
Look for the big sea lizards swimming and lounging about.
You can take a relaxing river cruise.
Cute restaurants and sights.
