  • A well formed walking track - clean - well maintained enough bridges so you can cross over and walk back - has a few cafes along the way to stop for a coffee or fruit juice  more »
  • A lovely river cruise with a great tour guide. A nice relaxing way to spend 40 min. The water lizards are lovely. There are some great food and drink spots along the way.  more »
  • River cruise ships, one 20 ringgit was sorry that took so much took a moment. Water is dirty and smelly. The spray occasionally come on board. Is why many India people. Watch only buildings on both sides of the wall are not. Then there's line about the monorail, opened a became disused. 40 minutes was hard. Dirty river where crocodiles are one was swimming calmly. Not cheap but good story.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
