“A pleasant walk”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

A pleasant walk along the river bank, I took a early morning stroll which was great, I am sure it gets crowded at times. Walking along here also comes with a warning about bag skaters so keep your money on you and make sure your camera is secure

“Great for a stroll”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

Great for a short stroll of an afternoon.
Most of the stalls were closed when we were there but it was still really interesting.

Just across road is the Bazzar which is worth a look and in the streets behind is India Street. Indian Street is even better than the Bazzar and a lot cheaper than the more tourist oriented stores.

“A cool walk on hot days”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

The waterfront is a pleasant and safe walk best taken early or late in the day when it might be a little cooler. The parklands feature a swathe of refreshing greenery with an easy view along the Sarawak River where a wide range of water craft from traditional water taxis, dilapidated and brightly painted fishing boats and smart tourist craft might be seen at the same time. The spectacular political house the Dun dominates the skyline from the north, but you won't get too many locals talking proudly about it. Apparently the DUN, which cost an arm and a leg or many (actually about US$100 mill), is only used sporadically ... And what's the point when the great leader, a public servant of more than 30 years has skimmed of multi billions? (some locals said US$7 bill) "But what can a mere local struggling from day to day do"? was a familiar refrain.

“Nice way to spend a morning or afternoon”
Reviewed October 18, 2012

Perhaps a 1.5 mile walk if you do the whole thing. Very pleasant along the river, a few restaurants along the way and people going about their daily lives.
