See Singapore from the water?

Got 2 x 24hr plus stopovers in Singapore . 1st in late August - 2nd in late September. We love to take cheap ferry rides up and down the Brisbane River and around Sydney Harbour -Circular Quay to Watsons Bay or Manly etc. Any tips for like options where you get to see the good stuff, have a bit of a sightseeing walk etc without paying the earth? Is this wet season? Would it be perfect at night or for lunch somewhere?

Any ideas if up market better?

Hello,

Would the Singapore River Cruise do?

http://www.rivercruise.com.sg

No, April is not the wet season here. However, do note that you can expect rain everyday although they are localised and may not be at the place where you are at. Rain are typically a sudden cloudburst and usually last for about an hour.

Take the Bumboat cruise from Clarke Quay, the nightlife centre of Singapore if you are into that scene, and the cruise will take you down to Marina Bay. If you do it at dusk, you get to enjoy the passing skyline in both daylight and at night. And it your timing is right, you get to enjoy Wonderful at 8pm at MBS Promenade.

Enjoy..

if u dont want to spend $ but still get a view of the city, take a DIY walk along the waterfront :

SIN is easy to get around not only coz of its size but the low cost of public transportation as well as the efficiency of the system.

Good luck and have fun

This is the link for the hop on hop off ferry, although not as economical as Brisbane ferries.
