Melaka River Walk is turned into a romantic walk at night. Everyone should take the opportunity to have a walk along the banks of Melaka River at night. The sights are ones that can captivate you with the colourful lights and the passing of the river cruises.
Beautiful Melaka River Walk at night.

Melaka River used to look like this before her transformation. The river was used as a big sewage which you can see laterines overhanging the river. It formed the sewage for the disposal of human faeces, rubbish and unwanted items. It was in the 1990's that Melaka River began her transformation.
The works were carried out in Phases and it took about 10 years to complete. The river bank was strengthened and a new sewage system was installed to prevent human wastes to be discharged into the Melaka River.
The whole Melaka River was upgraded including the building of a river mouth barrage system. The barrage will control the level of the Melaka River and prevent the Melaka Straits to discharge muddy salt water into the river. The barrage will be lowered to discharge the fresh water into the sea at certain intervals. By doing so, the Melaka River level was regulated. Now, the Melaka River Cruises can be used to ferry visitors to see the whole length of Melaka River.
To date, the whole length of the Melaka River Walk is about 8 km each way. The public can enjoy the rejunevated Melaka River.

This website is created to compliment our parent website at www.tourism-melaka.com. After creating our parent website in 2000, it has promoted Melaka to the world and brought Malaccans together from various countries in the world. Since then, more than 1million visitors have graced our website and it is steadily growing.
As we have followed the construction of Melaka River Walk and the development of our Melaka River over the decade, we feel we should do our part in promoting the popular Melaka Cruise and the Melaka River Walk. More activities and promotion can be undertaken to enhance the attractiveness of this Melaka River Walk.
