Melaka River Cruise – Melaka top 10 attractions
Hop on Melaka River Cruise and enjoy the cool night breeze with beautifully lighted up buildings reflecting on Melaka River. The night lightings make Melaka look even more beautiful at night. Melaka river forms a border, dividing the rural and urban landscape. Hence, on one side of the cruise, you can see the urban side of Melaka while on the other side, you will see a traditional Malay village. It is quite an interesting contrast to see! Melaka River Cruise should be one of the top few attractions in your list of ‘things to do in Melaka’.
There are three different jetties where you can board the cruise-Muara Jetty, Taman Rampah Jetty and Shore Jetty. The narrative guide of the cruise will explain to you the attractions along the river so that you can have a better understanding of the beautiful city of Melaka.
You will certainly be mesmerised by the spectacular lighted skyscrapers, decorated bridges as the cruise moves along the river. Also, do look out for some graffiti artwork spray-painted on the walls of the buildings. It is a whole stretch of building with colourful, brightly painted murals giving an artistic feel to the buildings. This street art is a project done by local graffiti artists to showcase their talent.
Melaka River Cruise is opened during the day as well as at night. However, the daytime experience will be different from the night. If you take the cruise during the day, you can see the intricate details of the place. Whereas at night, it might be difficult to see the attractions clearly, but what you get is the beautiful city lights and a romantic atmosphere. A perfect date with your loved one.
Undoubtedly, Melaka River Cruise deserves to be Melaka top 10 attractions! You wouldn’t want to miss it when you are here!
