Travel discounts are offered via the Melaka River and Coastal Development Corp (PPSPM) including a 20 percent price cut for the Melaka River Cruise (MRC) through the Melaka eXcess app until 31 December.

Mohd Fariz Mohd Ali, Chief Executive Officer of PPSPM, stated that local and international tourists may benefit from good deals on combo packages, including Menara Taming Sari and Muzium Melaka.

He said that "tickets purchased through the Melaka eXcess app are valid until 31 Dec 2023, under the 'Dream Now, Travel Later' campaign.

“We also have a 10 - 15 percent discount promotion for ticket counter purchases. A first-time credit worth RM10 will be given for downloading the app, too.

“We expect 500,000 visitors in the next six months.” 

The MRC will be resuming regular operating hours from 9 am to 11.30 pm. There will be 40 boats, but only 15 passengers are allowed on board to ensure that social distance is maintained.

“National Security Council (MKN) and Health Ministry standard operating procedures will be prioritized, including use of the MySejahtera app, while a body temperature reading, and the name and phone numbers of visitors will be recorded,” he said.

He also said that the use of a hand sanitizer is being applied before and after the boat boarding.
