Best time to visit is surely the sunsethours, as it is more windy and better view. Restaurant available on the walk and u could dine into the nite. The place is nicely kept, thus very clean

We stayed at the waterfront and took walks along the riverside. It was quieter during the day and livens up at night. Picturesque views of sampans, buildings across the river and sunset.

The waterfront comes alive in the evening. Lots of food and souvenir stalls to browse. Take a long tail boat ride around 6pm and see all points of interest in the sunset

A great place to walkabout and see the different villages along the river. The best time to go is in the late evening - to see the sunset. Also there are street food with food kiosks along the waterfront. Inexpensive experience of local food.

A few market stalls a tourist information office and a few shops. Good views of the river, and opportunity to take boat ride. Not much there and pretty scruffy.
