The riverside is a tourist attraction. The local town planners has developed the waterfront into a casual entertainment center, with cafes, pubs and restaurants and foodstalls.

The Kuching Riverside comes to live in the late afternoon, when the sun has lost some of its fierce noonday heat.

On weekend evenings, it is especially popular with families out for a stroll. The street performers are mostly young teenage locals came from the nearby villages or kampongs situated across the river.

Some of them would set up their drums; their electric guitars connected to speakers, playing their favorite local and international songs like picture above.

A few of them would just bring their acoustic guitar and perform themselves just to make a quick buck for their pocket money.

The Kuching riverside waterfront in the evening, is a vibrant, colorful, and melodic place to hang out.
