Another place one has to visit, stroll through and definitely eat, whilst visiting Singapore. Some say too touristy, but so long as you are alert, one can still have loads of fun. Dont choose a restaurant until you have walked right through. Many offer great deals on the night, such as no charge for beers etc. Great Sichuan Restaurant, and... More

Boat Quay is known for its excellent selection of lively bars, pubs, high end restaurants and alfresco dining overlooking the river. Its a must do if visiting Singapore. What I enjoyed most was the original historical shop houses still are operating & have all been conserved. We found Boat Quay after noticing on the river cruise so we decided to... More

This area is a great place to get local dishes. The spicy crab is very good and being able to pick your live crab too. All the resturants seemed to be the same so pick one and go for it. It is a great place to people watch also. Take your time and enjoy the experience.

This area has a lively buzz about it which appeals to many particularly the younger generation of ex pats. It feels safe although can be a bit rough and ready in the bars and toilets. Credit cards are widely accepted in most places. Soak up the atmosphere and enjoy.

Having been to Singapore many times on business I'd never been to Clark Quay or Boat Quay. We went to Clark Quay first but found it too noisy and clubby and walked down to Boat Quay. Plenty of restaurants along the river here but the staff shoving menus in your face and offering you free drinks to dine with them... More

Boat Quay is a little bit expensive, like everything in this area, but its really about the location, which makes it perfect. Really nice to enjoy the famous green beer at RedDot brewery...it's worth trying :)

Boat Quay has a wide choice of restaurants to choose from, all of which offer al fresco dining next to the Singapore River. The river itself is a little dirty, but the riverbank is a pleasant enough place for a meal. Most of the menus here are a little expensive.

I just loved this place while we had dinner at Kinara. Atmosphere here was too good and it was fun sitting on banks of river and having dinner.
