Get rid of the touts

Two different kinds of people come here. Tourists and raffles place office workers. The touts (while not as bad as before) do bring mood down while walking down the river but just... read more

Two different kinds of people come here. Tourists and raffles place office workers. The touts (while not as bad as before) do bring mood down while walking down the river but just ignore them. Lots of bars are busy in the evenings after work or when a sporting event is on. If you work in the area then it's very... More

I can't stand hawkers. And this stretch of river is covered in them. They try to get you to come to their restaurants, where the food is usually overpriced and mediocre.

Called by Boat Quay, on a couple of occasions during our last Family holiday to Singapore. Cheap drinks during midday happy hour/s. Large variety of different dining options, very kid friendly, a little cheaper than Clarke Quay. Most restuarants are on the waters edge. Recommend having a stroll at night, and enjoying the atmosphere.

this is a good place to hangout in the evening. You can see the river. Even though its a bit crowded, the open air seats and food outlets make us feel attracted towards it

I stayed in a hostel near Boat Quay for one night and I really love the are. I can see Singapore River in front of my hostel. There are so many bars and seafood store but it's expensive to buy. But if you have a lot of money to buy it, it's okay then.

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
