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. I always prefer to book a hotel near this place because it gives you so many options to eat out. Live bands, scores of eating places,... More

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.

The Boat Quay (pronounced as "key") is a great place to unwind after a long day in the business district of Singapore. 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

Clarke Quay is an area with restaurants and bars where you can have dinner on the bay. All types of cuisines at one place. Many restaurants offer a happy hour before 8 pm and it gets crowded after that time.

I have been visiting Boat Quay every couple of months for the last 10 years. It was always a lovely place to sit for a drink or a meal at one of the many "different" outside areas of the bars/restaurants. Since my last visit in July the outside area has been "modernised" with every unit similar to the next. What... More

Road Quay is exciting and is amongst bar, restaurant, shop and trendy small bars, you will find night club also disembark or embark on the canal back to the bay. Lots of colours and a fun little boat trip. the bars do have all something different and are all fun but on the weekend it is very busy.
