#2 of 17 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.

  • Clarke Quay. Lots of great restaurants. Great place to walk and at night the lighting is fantastic.
  • Night cruise is the best way to enjoy the beautiful skyline of Singapore as it sparkles against the night while the ripples of the river reflect the show in glittering splendor. There are multiple points where you can board the cruise; near Marina Bay Sands, Fullerton One or Clarke Quay. The smooth ride will introduce you to the modern architectures of Marina Bay Sands Hotel & the Esplanade theater, the historical landmarks like the Merlion & the Cavenagh Bridge, the towering structures that make up the financial district, and the colorful vibrant Clarke Quay. December to January are probably the best months to take a cruise (day and night) with cooler temperature. Just check the weather forecast for rain.
  • It's really enjoyable to take a stroll along the Singapore River and take in the views. It is nice for Singaporeans and foreigners alike to visit as it is too hard to get sick of the view all around.
  • Singapore River The Singapore River is located within the island’s Central Region.1 The 3.2-kilometre-long waterway
  • It's so beautiful, especially in night with many architectural building light.
