If you are a photo enthusiast aka shutterbug, the best time to take photo during the river cruise is at 7:00 pm, because you get the chance to take two panoramic view of day and night.
If you have choice to take the river cruise, go for the night cruise. There’s no different in ticket price. It is still RM10 for an adult and 50% off for children below 12 if you are a Malaysian. While foreigners is charge RM15 for adult and RM7 for children.
It’s much cooler at night compare to the hot sun during the day, and the river is light up with neon lights. Check out the photo of the Ferris wheel below (image credit).
While I didn’t take the picture above, but I did take the videos below during our night cruise on the Malacca River. Please change the setting to watch in HD for the best view.
I like the 3rd video the most. I think this is the most interesting place of the cruise. The Kampung Morten or Morten Village. The only traditional Malay village in the middle of the Historical City of Malacca. It’s like a live museum. We just don’t have time to drop by Kampung Morten to visit or to take pictures on that day as my relatives are heading back to KL, but they are lucky to be able to see it from the cruise.
