The river cruise did it for me. This family trip to Malacca is made memorable Because of the cruise. Chugging down on the calm and relatively clean river on a sunny day with intermittant but warm breezes is a good way to see Malacca for me. The lack of traffic jam after Second Link was a great motivator. The shopping and the meals at Newton were good too. of course the time spent with the family topped it all up.
