Description
Melaka River was once dubbed the ‘Venice of the East’ by European seafarers. The Melaka River is estimate about ten km. It is a popular tourist attraction because of the Sumatran prince Parameswara built his palace on the east-bank of the river (at the foot of St. Paul’s Hill) in the 1400s. Nearby the river

During the 45-minute hop on the Melaka River Cruise, you will get to see the best bits of this historical city, offering sights such as the traditional Malay village Kampung Morten and the beautiful murals alongside Jonker Walk. To join the cruise, you can attend either one of cruise’s on two jetties: one is the Muara Jetty, located next to Quayside Heritage Centre, and the other one is the Taman Rempah Jetty, situated next to the Hang Jebat bridge.


There are a few other bridges along the Melaka River. Only famous is Chan Boon Cheng Bridge due to Japanese soldiers placed the beheaded heads of their victims at the foot of the bridge as a not-so-gentle reminder for locals to toe the line.
Beside that, there is the ‘Ghostbridge of Malacca’ (a pedestrian bridge which links Kampung Pantai to Kampung Jawa) and the Old Market Bridge (which links Kampung Hulu to Jalan Kee Ann and the old Central Market). It used to be a picturesque scene of fishing boats berthed along the riverbanks here.but now it is mostly rows of Chinese restaurants. Fun fact: one of these restaurants was featured in the Hollywood blockbuster ‘Entrapment’ starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta Jones.
