We visited Boat Quay recently during our stay in Singapore and enjoyed lunch at pone of the many restaurants along the Singapore River. There is a great mix of bars and restaurants from varied nationalities, cultures and associated cuisines. Was an enjoyable time strolling through and then stopping to watch the world as it happens on the river.

We started our exploration of Boat Quay from the riverbank at Fullerton Hotel walking in the direction of Clarke Quay, lots of restaurants and bars offering drink promotions on the waterfront and the adjoining side roads, plenty of live music on offer, not as busy as CQ but a cool place to visit.

Great place if you have nothing to do, small boats sailing around bay and river, short guides in English, love it so much, and romantic off course!

Good restaurants along the Quayside although be aware that some target the Tourists! some used by the Bankers and Locals are good although a little overpriced. Good to... More

Cross the bridge to the Asian Museum, turn left and walk along the river to the next bridge. Just before the bridge, look across river and you see the shop fronts that were there in the 1800's before the recent high rise developments. The shops along this quay are mostly restaurants serving excellent seafood and other dishes.

When we first visited Singapore 25 years ago Boat Quay was the most popular and crowded nightspot on the river as Clarke Quay was only in its infancy. Now it appears that Boat Quay's popularity has dwindled, as Clarke Quay a little further up the river has overtaken its neighbour in terms of visitor numbers and variety of bars and... More
