Morning or night there is always plenty to see. There are lots of food kiosks and stalls. You can catch the river cruise along the esplanade at 5:30. There are magnificent sunsets. Clean and safe at night.

Of robbery. The locals advised me to be careful of daytime bag snatches. Didn't happen to me though. They have extended the walk to include the old wet-markets. Such a pity.

This is also know as the waterfront, the whole stretch is about 2 to 3 km long and you can virtually enjoy the view of the river especially during sunset and sun rise. There are also some shops selling snacks along the way. and this is also the place where you can get a sampan to go across the river

Wonderful area of Kuching. Nice walk with great views. There are some vendors and also eating areas. We saw groups of friends hanging out here at night. Better at night because it is cooler.

Went for slow walk in the evening before dinner. A few stalls selling souvenir. I guess the night drink stalls are only open much later as when we were there about 5.30pm nothing is happening.
