Kuching Esplanade, Kuching

(4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Take a peaceful stroll along Kuching Esplanade, a neatly decorated promenade. Lined with colonial era buildings, the esplanade brings the town and the water together in a walkway dotted with many ornamental features. Notice the traditional mosaics along the pathway, representing Malaysian themes through intricate patterns. Vendors set up here throughout the day, so grab some authentic street food as you pass, and head to the main bazaar at the end of the path for a bustling, traditional shopping experience. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kuching holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kuching Esplanade and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
