This is the place to go if you need a meal, drink or just to stroll thru the shops. You can also catch a boat to travel up and down the Singapore river.

This is a nice place for a stroll in the evening or morning after dinner or breakfast. There are many restaurants in this area to explore. After the stroll you can go to the shopping mall nearby to enjoy the aircon and buy groceries back.

This is a great area for walking along the river and grabbing a bite to eat. Lots of places to pick from, so just walk until you see something you like.

Want to take a great walk with a view of the river and city, lots of resturants also. Expensive dinning, mostly expats. At night the view is awsume, get some great photos of the area and enjoy the evening.

felt like we were in a bar in Mumbai... bollywood music (loud)... and girls dancing ... perfect place to waste your money after getting drunk. I was not drunk and I did not want to waste money - so left the place quickly.

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.
