The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
