Fodor's Review

Local entrepreneurs have created a mélange of eateries and bars to satisfy diverse tastes at this popular entertainment hub along the Singapore River.

At the end of Boat Quay and named after Lord Elgin, a British governor-general of India, Elgin Bridge links Chinatown to the colonial quarter.
