Staying at Park Hotel Clarke Quay, location help

Hello,

myself and husband are staying at the Park Hotel Clarke Quay for 3 nights in a couple of weeks and Im trying to work out distances to get around.

We have been to Singapore before once and stayed at the Swissotel MC about 10 years ago.

A lot has changed I know.

We want to spend late afternoon evening at Gardens by the Bay.

Maybe if possible have a cocktail at the bar/restaurant at Skydeck of the Marina bay Sands or just do the Skydeck observation area?

Must have Chilli crab at Boat Quay.

Can we use water taxis easily from our hotel to get to Gardens by the Bay?

Easy to walk?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

thank you

Glenys

Fort Canning is the cloest MRT station and from there, you can take the blue line to Bayfront for GBTB.

The water boats don't go to Gardens By The Bay. A regular taxi will be under S$10.

You can use gothere.sg for transport route options.

Thank you Minxbaby,

Where do the water boats go around the river? I remember we caught one close to Swissotel MC for a cruise around. Thought we could get one back to Clarke quay after our Marina Bay experience.

Hi again,

I have emailed CE LA VI at Marina Bay Sands Hotel for a dinner reservation and they have said we need to purchase tickets for the SkyDeck?

thank you

You are not paying for tickets for the Observation Deck but an entry voucher for the restaurant, the amount of which can be offseet against the purchase of food and beverage at the restaurant. It is all explained here https:/…ce-la-vi-club-lounge.html

The restaurant is separate from the Observation Deck although the view from there is similar.

Thank you for helping.

Our time in Singapore is very precious as we only have 2 1/2 days so wondering if we should have dinner up there or just do the observation deck? Intending to get to Gardens by Bay around 4pm wander around have dinner at 6pm then watch to light show.

If you just want a quick dinner, it will be cheaper and faster to eat at Satay by the Bay or Rasa Pura Masters. Ce La Vie is quite crowded at night.
