    Favourite bit of Singapore
    I recommend doing the cruise around sunset to get some photos and to enjoy the serenity of the bumboat. Follow that up with a beer and some finger food at one of the riverside eateries. End your night with a stroll to admire the city lights and get some dessert. Perfect evening in Singapore!

    Wow, where do I even begin with Clarke Quay? This vibrant riverside destination in Singapore absolutely stole my heart. From the moment I stepped foot into the area, I was greeted with a lively atmosphere and a captivating blend of colors, sounds, and aromas.

    It’s great when it’s open
    Well this place seems to be getting some renovations done at the moment. It’s a very vibrant place at night time, but during the day, honestly, it was pretty dead. It’s hard to even get something to eat or drink. There is nothing opens until well after 11. If you’re a visitor, don’t expect any shopping or food to be open, but it’s nice enough to walk around , but if you stay late enough you can get a bum boat and have a little tour out into the area where Marina Bay Sands -is it’s quite pleasant

    Nice hangout place
    Good place to hangout especially for couples. You can have all kind of food even Indian too. The place is better for nonveg food and boozing, but we enjoyed a lot though we are vegetarian. The food cost is same as of Boat Quay i.e., in fine dine category.

    It’s a bustling place all the day around. Singapore river where you can book cruise tour for 45 minutes, dine in in one of many restaurants and cafes in the area or do a good walk at the free smoking garden. At night, enjoy the beautiful lights reflected in the river.

    Great walk.
    The views were amazing and we took many photos. It was a great walk around along the river side. There were lots of cruises along the river. Had a relaxed time at the clark central and walked on to raffle place.

    Lovely part of Singapore loads of shops, cafes, restaurants, things to do on the river
    We enjoyed this river front area very much. Easily reachable via MRT. We came during the day as well as night time. Lots of shops, cafes, restaurants, ice cream parlor, and bars. In the day time, we got snacks and walked around a bit. It really comes to life at night. With the temperature much cooler and the river water cooling effect, it is very pleasant! Many bars and lounges with live music, even found a salsa band playing. Definitely spend some time walking through the alleys, we came upon a water fountain feature. Got some drinks and sat to people watch for a while. The route "between the two bridges" was quite doable. Took some colorful night photos. Wonderful spot to hang out.

Clarke Quay has alot to offer and a fun vibe for late afternoon drinks and dinner. It’s bright, it’s colourful, it’s busy, it’s fun and most of the bars and restaurants are more casual walk in style.

It is colourful and vibrant at night, especially during the festive season. Clarke Quay is a fantastic place to dine and or have a few drinks.

We were here for a stroll in the evening. Vibrant as usual, with plenty of locals & tourists alike. A good spot for an evening out in the city.

We caught a taxi here to take a cruise on the Singapore River/reservoir. Other than the 5 people working in the ticket booth and 2 waiters in the nearby Zorba restaurant, there were no other people in sight. Such a difference from when last here, the place was bustling and a had a fantastic atmosphere. The major redevelopment currently doesn't entice people, could be interesting to see how many survive in business until the work is completed. 6 of us departed on the cruise, we were the only returnees to have lunch at Zorbas on return.

We made the effort to go to Clarke Quay as it was "a place to see" in Singapore. Went on the train, hard to find the area I was looking for on the river. Got lost. Eventually found it. Nothing going on there. Noone around. Disappointing lunch as they weren't actually serving the food in the pictures advertised. Lots of walking with nothing to see. Tried getting a taxi home to hotel, taxi rank shut. More walking, eventually caught the train back. Don't bother going here during the day. Perhaps it comes alive at night?
