  • Having a short walk and enjoying the scene there. It would be even better to walk at night, and will do that next time.
  • Man made marvels. Spend time for whole evening sitting on the bridge, having drink, seeing people so everybody does. Restaurants, cafes and bars along the river.
  • Gets a lot of people but not crowded. Best to visit at night to see the lights and the drinks shining.
  • nice venue but super crowd now
  • Best place in Singapore to drink beer. Buy some beer from 7/11 sit on the bridge and drink. But this luxury’s there only till 10 pm.
