During night time you can find the local food stalls there. It was very happening during night time. You can have a slow walk during day time. There have few security guide sitting along the riverside. It is safe to walk. Besides you can get the small souvenirs stall with cheaper price.

We have been walking up and down the Kuching esplanade since arriving here earlier in the week, very pretty day and night. At the moment the international dragon boat races and also quite a large craft show is being held so there is a lot going on, it is wonderful!

This place has nothing much to offer except for a walk along the Riverside . The only thing worth watching are the small boats ferrying the passengers across the river. If you are there at the right time you can actually witness the school children making their way and queuing for the boats to bring them across. Was told by... More

Nice pleasant atmosphere especially in the evenings. Some beautiful buildings with character. I think this area could be developed further in terms of activities to engage in but, over all very enjoyable to stroll along
