Short but compact street with variety local food and good environment. For Hakka food lover, you can easily find traditional Hakka dishes and kuih here. A friendly and harmony old street.

A cowboy town that comes alive on weekend nights. About 25km away from Kuching city. Worth the drive to visit this place. Advisable to go in the evening before sunset and enjoy the food and atmosphere till after sunset. Can witness the change of colour hues and moods of the evening and night. A variety of local and foreign dishes/food is sold here. Some seasonal local fruits are sold cheaply. Sometimes, during festive seasons, stage performances are held at vicinity of a Chinese temple just some 50 meters away. Can become very crowded during special event nights. …

This street is at the level of Jalan Alor in KL, Jonker Street in Malacca, or Gurney Drive in Penang!!!

The market is in BAU which is 40 minutes by car from Kuching. We took a taxi which cost RM80 including wait time as read a review that difficult to get taxi to return to Kuching.

It's actually quite far to travel for a night market. On the Saturday we were there it took us 45 minutes to get there after leaving at 5pm from the Hilton. We arrived and there's a few people already eating. Most, if not all food shops are ready to go unlike Taiwan where it really is a certain time before it gets going. Before 6pm was just right giving us enough time to look around and survey the food and getting a seat. Whilst it is open seating, where you sit, you may need to buy a drink or food as those are the unwritten rules. We spent our time trying out the different foods there and they say the chicken cooked in the bamboo is a speciality. I found that the food choices weren't necessarily amazing but we all were happy to have gone there once but wouldn't go back more than once on a short trip. Food is very reasonably priced and similar to reasonable prices in the city. By the time we left it was around 7.30pm and giving us enough time to get back to the city to look at other things whilst enjoying the market at night. In terms of taste, nothing wrong with taste and nothing that overly amazing at the same time. The architecture is really nice to enjoy and look at or snap for a photo. There's no other shops around here. our taxi got us here and back for 100 MYR. I had purposely paid this as grab is difficult to get back. It's also not necessarily an easy drive if you rent a car unless you have GPS.…
