Bit of a line-up to get on the cruise but worth it especially if you take the cruise around 7pm as you also get to see the laser light display reflecting on the river. The cost of SGD20 covers the cost of the cruise only...More

Took the boat tour from Clarke Quay. The tour lasted about 50 minutes and gave a great view of the city and the bay. The architecture is terrific. The audio tour was also very informative.

The boat ride not only covers a few places of importance but gives you a scenic roundabout. Feels like a little Venice without the gondola.

Get on queue on the Clark Quay side, near Hooters restaurant, about 6:30 or so. We don't bother with the (sometimes) longer queue for the sunset/light show, we like the one "just before" it. Usually less people--half the ride is in sunlight, the last half...More

Had a great time @ Singapore River Cruise. You are in the middle of the city surrounded either by big buildings or other tourist attractions. Just sit back relax and enjoy the cool breeze. Click snaps with famous attractions in the background. The 40 mins...More

Singapore River Cruise is a nice way to fill in an hour and get some respite from the humidity. Only negative is the endless procession of flag waving, whistle blowing tour guides and their patrons. If you can time it to get a quiet one...More

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
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

Getting over into the boat would be cautious. They help handing you over onto the boat. And it rocks at times. You would need to assess your position and what they have available.

We didn't pre book the cruise, but went straight to the ticketing box at Clarke Quays. It's easy and there are plenty of boats.
