Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard), Paramaribo
(2.7/5 based on 180+ reviews on the web)
Stoll along under the shade of almond trees and see the 19th-century colonial style houses at Waterkant (Riverside Boulevard). Watch the commerce of ships in the harbor and cars moving along the distant bridge in one of the oldest parts of Paramaribo. Have a sip of Surinamese beer and grab some local dishes, such as bami (meat noodles) or kip sate (skewered meat), from the typical Indonesian warungs (small family restaurants), which remain open until late at night. The nearby attractions include the main square and presidential palace.

  • Any traveller who comes in Suriname should definitely have been a time on the waterfront. A variation of small food stalls where you can find Chinese or Javanese, Creole food and enjoy a drink overlooking the river can eat you.

  • A little piece of Europe in the tropics. Old mansions, some seem well-kept, others less so, but worth the walk.

  • Lovingly restored buildings. It is worth also to view the streets behind. Be careful with traffic. On the waterfront enjoy a tasty snack and a drink. With views of the Suriname River and the Wijdenbosch bridge
