Laid back place, casual atmosphere, lots of locals come here for evening meals and to watch the sunset. Walk over new foot bridge can see Government House and Assembly and old Fort. Take long boat up and down the river. Safe, pretty well lit area.

This place has a relaxing River and new bridge. The bridge is very well done, it looks amazing. Next to it is the governor's residence and parliament building.

Maybe it is a Monday night, hardly any stalls were set up, let alone any lively activities. Unpleasant smell from the river.
