“Ideal for evening stroll”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2013 via mobile

An ideal spot to take a walk especially in the evening while enjoying the sights on both sides of the river. A good venue for family and friends get together. Activities available include boat rides and river cruise.
Stalls selling light food and beverages are available too. Hotel guests would find this place suitable for evening walk while watching life goes by. For souvenir hunters , there are several craft shops selling local handicrafts along the Main Bazaar. For food hunters, there are food courts across the river just a few minutes away by boat. Walking along the waterfront is lihe walking down memory lane since there are plenty of historical significance attached to the area if we are observant. A new walkway is under construction along the opposite side of the river bank. This will enhance the attractiveness of the river.

“Nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

This is a nice safe place to stroll in the evening - there are eating places, boat trips, shops, and, in the evening, stalls selling many tourist materials.

“Great walk along the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2013

As you walk on the Esplanade take note of the 13 or so inlaid bronze plaques that give you a snippet about the history of the town.
