Taking a river cruise on a "tambang" is one of the loveliest and most relaxing experience I had in travelling throughout Malaysia. You can easily hire one on the city centre's riverfront; at time of my visit in Aug 2005, it costed me RM30 for a one-hour ride. Aside from relaxing while the boat takes you around along the Sarawak river, you can also visit the attractions of the northern bank of the river, such as the Istana and Fort Margherita as well as having a good view of the State Mosque, and the riverfront. The pictures attached tell more than words of my experience crusing the Sarawak river of a tambang.

Note that drivers (sailors?) usually speak little to no english, but you will somehow manage to agree on duration and price.

Directions: You can hire one the city centre riverfront.
