The esplanadeare just a small part of the experience of walking along the Kuching Waterfront. really nice for a stroll at any time of the day or the night. It is more lively during late afternoons, enjoying food stalls and street artists.

Nothing much to shout about.... just an ordinary esplanade fronting the modern parliament building resembling a surreal golden spaceship. There are river cruises, but the simple sampan ferry, which rows people back and forth for M$1 a ride (under 20p), is more fun.

Not much happening during the day with few people and many of stalls closed - also very hot. The new pedestrian bridge looks good but really goes nowhere. Just turn around and come back. Locals told us to be wary of pickpockets in this area.

Not too far from our hotel and nothing better than a stroll along the Kuching Esplanade. Cool evening breeze and various hawkers & food outlets allows visitors to laze and walk casually around. The bridge, opened early 2018, adds to splendid view of the river...More

The esplanade is really nice for a stroll at any time of the day or the night. It is more lively during late afternoons, when families gather to take the fresh air along the Sarawak river, enjoying food stalls and street artists.

The views are just a small part of the experience of walking along the Kuching Waterfront. Almost every evening that I have been there there has been buskers playing everything from traditional Sarawakian Sape and Flute music to a solo guitarist. That combined with the...More
