Fodor's Review

Stretching along the riverfront, Clarke Quay is canopied by space-age umbrellas that serves up a smorgasbord of entertainment, restaurants, bars, and clubs. Come nightfall, the pedestrian-only streets are filled with a mix of visitors and locals hitting up the latest eateries and bars. With its bright lights and festive nightlife, the river along the quay is a world away from the sleepy waterway it was when Raffles first arrived. Get a view from the river by boarding one of the many bumboats that offer daily 30-minute cruises. Thrill seekers will love the G-MAX Reverse Bungy, a reverse bungee ride at the river's edge, open from 2 pm until late into the night.

The Better Quay

Forget Boat Quay. Just further down the river is the new and improved, Clarke Quay. Clarke Quay is a lively entertainment venue full of restaurants, bars and dance clubs. It was renovated recently with a futuristic and aesthetically pleasing "roof" that keeps the central area cool even without airconditioning. Clarke Quay's refurbishing was part of a concerted drive to make the Singapore River a venue for top notch recreation and dining. You have

to visit at night when the place comes alive (it can be dull in the daytime), have dinner or drinks and then cap the night with a walk along the river or take a river taxi for an unforgetable cruise.
