Boat Quay is a place one must visit towards the evening when it is lit up. It has amazing food joints with crowds throbbing in till late night to relax, party, enjoy the food and cool breeze. A must visit if in Singapore

This is one of the areas of old Singapore that was cleaned up by the new government in 1965 and by subsequent development. Quite an interesting place, especially if you reflect on its history, which can be a metaphor for the mixed transformations of greater Singapore itself.

Enjoyed some drinks by the river on a Saturday afternoon. Nice spot for a first time visitor but limited options. Much of the options looked very similar. Found Clarke Quay to be a better choice.

In a way this part of the city still brimmed with some of the colonial charm that a lot of the other sterile shopping centres lack. Being along side the river,... More

Great variety of restaurants where you can sit overlooking the river. Extremely busy place at dinner time with everyone trying to offer you food in their restaurant. Bars as well if you only want a drink with friends, with happy hours .

Loaded with restaurants and a people gathering spot in Singapore. Boat access along with walking and vehicle transportation. Other attractions located close by for sightseeing. Photo opportunities are available. Dreamt gathering place for locals and tourists.

Another great place in Singapore to have fun with friends. Pay attention to the happy hours to get the drinks cheaper. All Bars are open and provide the guests with good music.

Very touristy. Unlike clark quay, boat key has only tourists and restaurants with bad food for tourists. The contrast between old and new is nice to see, but only if you have time.

Excellent place to hang out with friends and family - there are great food joints beside water front - I used to like to go to this place in the evening - extremely diversified and a huge choice of various type of food that one must try!
