Walking along Boat Quay is full of surprises to your senses. Water side restaurants that specialise in Seafood, Crab a speciality & Chill Crab is a must. Ideal for either a lunch or Dinner. Local bars are also around as are some late night clubs only a street back from the water.

In my humble opinion, you're have a nicer time at Clark Quay than Boat Quay - that's assuming you're over 40

Nice pace to relax and grad a drink or good. Expensive to eat and drink but overall a nice piece of the river connected to other "keys". We walked along the entire river ...from the flyer. Very nice but very very long walk.....

I Simply love Boat Quay and nearby Clarke Quay for its lively night life. When you at not sure where to go. Just head here on any evening and you would not be disappointed.

We visited in a Friday afternoon, walked along soaking up the local cultures. We sat at a bar for a few beers and some food. A continual steam of boats and people, you will never be bored of looking. The little turtles in the water make for a little excitement. Worth a visit.

People of all hues mostly young crowd can be seen moving around and sitting outside the eating and drinking joints in the area. Most of the establishments offer "Happy Hour" to their customers before 8 PM as the... More

This is either you thing or it's not. We found it quite unattractive and full of tourists with nothing Singaporean about it. So many better places to go than this. Just worth a walk through, that's about it.

What on earth have the government of Singapore done to Boat Quay? This was once a very nice place to sit beside the river and have a drink and/or a meal. A great setting with decorative awnings which differed from outlet to outlet. Now, in an apparent attempt to upgrade and probably modernize the place, Boat Quay has become typical... More
