So much more could be made of this area. Nice walk at sunset. Would benefit from a few food stalls along the riverside

Nice walkway that runs along the river. Beautiful views at sunset. Some places to eat and some benches to rest and enjoy the view. Taking a boat to the other side offers a differant view of the city.

Very pleasant just to stroll up and down this esplanade (east-west) in the cool of the morning or at sunset. Very laid back + safe.

This is a river bank made over for tourists. You can catch a riverboat tour.There are the usual tourist souvenir shops. There's even a cafe. Yes, the river is muddy. There's not that much to see. But if you take it as part of a walk of Kuching, it's fine. Across the road are shops selling Sarawakian handicrafts, including cheap... More

Bare in mind was pouring with rain when we went not really worth the trip. Lots of shops selling much the same. Lots of people and the humidity high. Broken pavements and very run down and beaten in places.

This is lovely riverside walkway with the old terraced shops opposite selling some interesting souvenirs. Road traffic is light so no distraction, and there are a number of interesting buildings to look at along the way. You could take a river taxi to the other side for a few cents and that would be worth doing. Also stop and have... More
