During our short time in Rishikesh, we wandered over this bridge and it's surrounding areas a good few times. I would say it's quite relaxing and leisurely, but only once you get over the constant crowds and beeping of motorbikes and all the people staring at you.
Wander over the either side of the bridge to enjoy the beautiful views of the Ganges river - especially at sunset. It needs to be South of the river, otherwise you can't really see the sun setting. There aren't really many crowds around either in these areas and it's really lovely.
In the surrounding areas, it was nice to see the local shops and to get a fresh taste of coconut water, or buy some sparkly bangles, or see the various statues of the Hindu Gods. We were there when the World Peace Festival was on and it was great to see all the people gathering together and being a part of that experience.
