star-4.5

Singapore River
Flowing through the city’s dense Central Business District, the Singapore River is closely tied to  Singapore’s history and modern day-to-day life. It was on the north bank of the river where Stamford Raffles first landed to found his colony, and many government buildings still line its shores. Many of the city’s top nightlife hot spots are also situated along the river, including Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and Robertson Quay. 
Address: Clarke Quay, 179031, Singapore

A River Rhapsody - Passageways Along Singapore River

A River Rhapsody - Passageways Along Singapore River

Get away from the maddening crowd in the city to enjoy a gentle stroll in the serene and green atmosphere along this waterway. Imagine the sound of running water and chirping birds, amidst a quiet urban scape. During the tour, you will get to know the history of Alexandra Canal, which feeds into the Singapore River, and how it forms part of Singapore's water strategy. Witness urban renewal not only in the canal itself but also its surroundings. As we proceed along the Singapore River, you will see historical landmarks and bridges and hear the not so oft told stories behind them. The gentrification of this part of the city along the Singapore River before the city proper is telling. Tastefully architected luxury condominiums and elegantly restored shop houses repurposed as restaurants and bars dot the river bank. The tour ends at Fort Canning Station, just shy of Clarke Quay. You'll notice the atmosphere is decidedly different!
