This was my second time in Singapore and I decided to visit Boat Quay with my boyfriend as it was recommended through Tripadvisor. Although the place was beautiful and less crowded compared to Clarke Quay, I must warn visitors to stay away from Forum Seafood Village. There are plenty of other food behind the waterfront, but if you must eat,... More

Lovely spot for a stroll at night with plenty of places to eat and drink. Can also take the boat ride into these areas. Be careful though if you are going to eat seafood - it looks like a reasonable price but is charged per 100g so the bill can be a surprise!

I stumbled across this after visiting the asian civilisation museum. What a pleasant surprise. I ended up eating the most amazing Korean soup followed by real Italian Gelato. There are so many restaurants to pick and all look amazing! I went on a Tuesday lunchtime and the place was packed with city folk all tucking into lunch - but there... More

It is very pleasant to walk in that area in the evening. It is very touristic but it is lively and pleasant.

The place was very relaxing! It shimmers during the night. Love the food though! We've tried the seafoods which you can choose what seafood and it'll be cooked for you. Love to be there again soon 😊

If it's a variety of cuisines you're looking for then Boat Quay is the place to go! Do yourself a favour though, it's not just the row of restaurants along the riverfront, it's the streets behind too and that's where you'll find the amazing places! Eastern, Asian, Western, you name it and you'll find it there. You get the overly... More

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 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 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.
