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.

    Nice place to walk and catch a boat ride. There are also stalls along the waterfront where you could buy fruits, drinks and some other food while enjoying your stroll along the river. Across the road, there are shoplots selling a wide variety of souvenirs.

    I came here when it's rain, and that was the best time to enjoy your loneliness, cold and peaceful, you might wanna come at night, there's a lot of stalls open, their laksa was nice, however it's kinda crowded but still it's a good place to sit and enjoy your backpacker's holiday

    Serene, calm, and peaceful! A place that you would like to walk during sunset. For tourist, this is the most convenience place to find a souvenir to take home.

Where to stay in Kuching

The most popular area to stay in Kuching remains just south of the Sarawak River, where you can find affordable hotels offering basic but comfortable rooms. South of Jalan Main Bazaar, budget backpacker accommodations in the form of hostels and guesthouses draw many visitors with limited means. Consider the districts north of the river for more exclusive and resort-style alternatives.
