This is the eldest quay in Singapore so we really wanted to visit!! The quay itself is a stunning little area. Very quiet in the mornings bust busy in the afternoon and evening. There are plenty of shops and restaurants around and we could have sat all day watching the boats come and go. Also a great place for people... More

With much of Singapore modern it's great to visit this area showing something of Singapore's past. Alongside the river it's an area of restaurants and bars - offering sea food and also asian cuisine.

Boat Quay is definitely worth a visit when in Singapore. There are lots of restaurants serving many different dishes. Seafood is obviously freely available but you can also find Thai and Indian food. This is a very old part of Singapore with all the restaurants and bars located in the old houses located on the riverside. We always visit Harrys... More
