The clear and narrow Melaka River flows through the middle of Melaka city from Negeri Sembilan feeding the Straits of Melaka. Dubbed as the 'Venice of the East', it is visited by the tourists for the 45-minute Melaka River Cruise offering stunning view of traditional shophouses, colonial buildings and ancient settlements.
On both sides of the Melaka River are food joints and shops for a pleasant walk around the river and beautiful paintings drawn on the buildings, providing a contemporary look. The best time to visit is during dusk when the surroundings glow with colourful decorations and lights.
