The Malacca River is the waterway that cuts across Malacca town, on its way to the Straits of Malacca. It separates the civic area clustered at the foot of St Paul’s Hill, from the residential and commercial district of Heeren Street and Jonker Street. A flotilla of small boat transports sightseers up and down past memorable buildings, old warehouses (godowns), interesting mangrove stands, churches, and villages. The 1998 Sean Connery film Entrapment was partially filmed here. Tours last around 45 minutes in boats ranging from 20- to 40-seaters, and normally a least of eight passengers is required before departure.You can departure on Muara Jetty, next to Quayside Heritage Centre, close to the Maritime Museum simply recognizable by the model of the Portuguese ship Flor De la Mar. From here the boat trip takes you upstream as far as Taman Rempah jetty where the boat turns around and brings you back to the starting point.
