I joined the OLD MELAKA RIVER CRUISE thinking I could trace the history of Melaka from the river since Melaka is famous because of the river and the port.
Sadly, I was not impressed by the cruise. The river was smelly, murky and full of rubbish. Nothing much to see. Just other peoples’ filthy backyards. We even saw a man peeing into the river. Shock! He quickly hid behind some zinc wall when he saw us cruising by, if not you would have seen his action featured here. Hahah!
The cruise should be dubbed Biawak (Monitor Lizards) Cruise instead of Old Melaka River Cruise. I had seen a few “sunbathing” on the banks of the river and one or two having a cool dip in the river.
Unique Suggestions: Say bye bye to your RM8. Heheh. Really, I advise you not to take the river tour unless you are a hardcore fan of those scaly four legged reptiles and the sight of rubbish floating by.
Fun Alternatives: Don’t cruise. Take a trishaw ride around the historic city.
theres this bicycle that they doll-up but it would be RM20 per ride and that's too much!
Unique Suggestions: take a photo of it alone or strike up a deal with the driver first
