Singapore river cruise takes you around the Singapore city. The tour is best taken in the evening hours, when the sun has gone down (and so have the temperatures), and the city lights have taken full effect.

This was an excellent way to see the City from another perspective. Very good at night if you want to get some great photos of the laser light show from Marina Bay Sands Hotel.

Best way to appreciate both colonial and modern architecture of Singapore is to see the city through a River cruise. Loved the commentary and buildings and structures on both ends of the river. Most fascinating is the Business Center on the banks of the river.

A great view of Singapore, last around 20-30 mins. Worth doing in the evening to see the city light up. Good value for money
