Boat Quay Guide

All you need to know about Boat Quay

This portion of the riverside can stake its claim to be the most photographed area of Singapore. A row of carefully conserved shophouses fronts a backdrop of towering skyscrapers. Today, these shophouses have been converted to sports bars, pubs, seafood restaurants and other alfresco joints. Boat Quay tends not to be as crowded and rowdy as Clarke Quay, though it is the expatriate’s choice for simply relaxing and having a drink.

Boat Quay was once the main focal point of Singapore’s entrepot trade business. Sir Stamford Raffles, Singapore’s founder, first landed on the banks of Boat Quay, near the present-day Cavenagh Bridge. Cross the bridge to the spacious promenade of the opposite bank. The Asian Civilisations Museum is located here, together with the Victoria Concert Hall and Theatre. There are 2 restaurants worth a visit here. Indo-chine, the posh, romantic place serving Asian cuisine and Timbre, a great place for a drink while enjoying the live music every night
