Visited on Saturday night with my family, the riverside area is easy to get to as it's right in the city centre. Grabcar/uber costs only RM3-4 from our hotel.

A lot of locals were eating here. I didn't see anything that I liked. A few drink and ice cream stalls also.

all along the riverside you will find eating outlets at different spots. some big outlets and kiosk. as you stroll you can see all these food outlets and hawkers all the bank of the riverside. most of the items are local made or delights.

There are many hawkers selling different varieties of street foods, like fried fish / sea food, burgers, momos etc. However few are very good and found few not healthy / clean for eating.

Some sell nice food but mainly places to snack, have drinks and eat ice-cream and buy some souvenirs. Colourful lights and some street music make it a pleasure to wonder around.

The food stalls along the Esplanade offer a variety of cheap food options. Choose just one stall for your meal or sample from several stalls as we did on our evening stroll.

You can sit and relax along the riverside enjoying many delicious food and drinks. Come here in the late afternoon or evening.

The New Year Eve's celebration wasn't too rousing and crowded. There are many stalls sell foods, drinks, snacks and souvenirs. You also can buy ticket to have a boat ride on the river.
