We went on this trip as part of our tour. I was a bit apprehensive, as I thought i5 was a bit touristy ? But we were tourists so that wasOK. Quiet, leisurely and restful. Many colourful structures and photo opportunities. Recommended.

If you have an hour to spare whilst in Singapore it is worth doing the boat trip, some interesting commentary and great sights that are difficult to get elsewhere.

It is nice to take a boat around Marina Bay and only in 45 minutes you will take a lot pictures of the buildings, Merlion and Marina Bay! It is nice when they explain you about the bathrooms of one of the hotels, that at...More

Second time I have done this tour at night...and I'd do it again! The lights at night are stunning reflected on the water and nice to do outside of the heat of the day.

Kids enjoyed the ride but complained that 40 mins was too short. It's a good way to learn the history of Singapore.

The last boat is at 10.30pm and they go at 15 minute intervals - that is all day from 9 am until 10.30 pm. Sunsets around 6 pm so you can work it out from there.
