The price rises during holidays. RM15.90 per person. The ride took approximately 30minutes and you can listen to the recorded commentary while enjoying the view along the river.

The boats are clean and comfortable. Took the 7:15pm ride where it was a cross from sunset orange view to beautifully lit wall murals and bridges in the night. Some parts of the river were smelly but bearable.
