A 40 minute boat trip along the river is good value, with audio telling you the history and significance of the various heritage sites(and new sites)is very informative and gives you orientation on what is on offer along the river. It only cost SD$25

Pleasant but expensive...$25 per person for a 40 min cruise and pre-recorded audio. The audio was OK...not particularly engaging eg. No amusing stories or similar like some tours we have had at home or in Europe. If you want to take photos, try to get...More

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will

features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the
