Clarke Quay Review
This festival village, which was for Sir Andrew Clarke, the second governor of Singapore, has entertainment, restaurants, and shops. Here you can observe a tinsmith demonstrating his skill, groove to a blues band in the central square's small gazebo, watch stilt-walkers wobble down pedestrians-only streets, or scout for bargain antiques. The river along the quay is close to being the sleepy waterway it was when Raffles first arrived; cargo vessels are banned from entering. You can board one of the bumboats (small launches) that offer daily 30-minute cruises along the river and into Marina Bay; it's a pleasant ride and a respite for tired feet. There are a slew of eateries along the water and there's a Sunday flea market. Thrill seekers will love the G-MAX Bungy, a reverse bungy ride at the river's edge.
