Every time I come to Singapore, I always come to this place. There are many restaurants for tourists and behind there are many tall buildings of financial institutions. Boat Quay is the place where the ancient and the modern Singapore meet.

If you visit Boat Quay for what it is, a riverside drinking & dining precinct primarily of the western tourist market, then you probably won’t be too disappointed. But it’s nothing more than this. The location is stunning and on a nice balmy night (which...More

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
