If you visit Boat Quay for what it is, a riverside drinking & dining precinct primarily of the western tourist market, then you probably won’t be too disappointed. But it’s nothing more than this.

The location is stunning and on a nice balmy night (which is almost every night) it is nice to walk along the river and see the brightly painted buildings and their bright LED flashing signs. But venture just a little further down the road, to one of the more local street food venues and you will be richly rewarded. By better food at significantly lower prices.

Not as crass as Clarke Quay, but no that far off.

This area is great for having a nice dinner right beside the Singapore river while enjoying the lights and music from everywhere or you can simply enjoy a drink with friends in one of these many bars around you

Nice weather especially at night breezy relaxing ambiance. Pricey food places, touristy in fact. But overall you need to experience this place especially at night.

This "attraction" has been around for a long time, about 25 years or more. Just at the fringe of the CBD, many workers come here for lunch. Then expats and locals come here after work for drinks, and tourists come here too

Absolutely worth it. A bit expensive but trust me, boat quay isn't going to disappoint you at all. Visit here during the evening after 1900 hours. Dine with a view. There are a chain of bars and pubs if you want to visit..that too categorised into different countries.
