A very nice place to visit and stroll down by the waters edge. On the weekend nights that was also a Bazaar. Food, sights and sounds to enjoy the evening. Day time cruisers on the river are also on the go.

This is a must in Kuching. Just come and walk around. You can check out the stands selling a variety of items from layer cake to headphones and electronics to male enhancement natural medicines.

Heat can be a nuisance for those not used to humidity and heat. Start the walk from the east end (near The White Barok). There a plagues on the ground with historical facts to read as you stroll. Don't forget to visit the free entry Chinese Museum along the way too (around the area of plague no 6). Many talks... More

Great place to spend some time . The best in the evening where there are food stals open. During the day it offers great views to the other river bank, which can be reached with a boat for 1 ringit...

It is nice walking along the river. There are food stalls also souvenir stalls. Lovely lit up at night. Nice greenery around. A good way to walk instead of the streets.

This was a short walk that offered a nice view across the river. There were some good vendors along the walkway. I wouldn't have gone too far out of my way to walk along here. The view was nice at night when the lights across the river were lit.
