The area around Singapore River is lively and located in the heart of the city. In the early morning I walked along Singapore River and it is special to see the historical Chinese shophouses at Boat Quay with the huge skyscrapers and shopping malls behind it. Another interesting part is Clarke Quay. These shophouses are renovated too and look colorful along the river.
The area gets more interesting in the evening and night, when people go to the restaurants and bars that are accommodated in the historical warehouses. A nice area to spend some time in the evening! Perhaps the best way to see the area is to make a River Tour on the Singapore River by night. The companies Singapore River Cruise and Duck & Hippo River Tour offer boat tours on the Singapore River for about S$18. Just sit back, relax and enjoy the wonderful skyline of Singapore!
