Singapore River, Singapore

#2 of 14 in Nature in Singapore
Discover nightlife, world-class dining, and scenic boat tours at Singapore River. This body of water features three quays, each of which has its own walkway for visitors. This river originally functioned as a route for trade and transport, but suffered heavily from pollution. In 1977, the government cleaned and revitalized this river as a part of greater redevelopment. Now, you can enjoy strolls along the river, as well as the many bars and restaurants that line its banks. Our Singapore trip itinerary maker makes visiting Singapore River and other Singapore attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
