Clarke Quay during the day is good but at night is very lively (but sorry I don't have night photos). Locals and holiday makers from all over the world gathered here.
There are lots of shops selling everything from silkwear and batik prints to home furnishings and antiques.
The night scenery is exciting, vibrant with carnival atmosphere. You can stroll and look around at the shops, have coffee, drink at the bar or dine at one of the restaurants. The disco/night club comes to live where the party goer lining to enter. Along the bridge you’ll see people sitting drinking while watching busker perform. There are live band in most bar some doing country rock and some doing funk, jazz music. You can even try the reverse bungee or hop on a river cruise and take lots of photos.
It is one of the best places in Singapore and I highly recommended.
If you're down at Clarke Quay and wouldn't mind seeing Singapore from another vantage point, grab a bumboat ride. Fully narrated with a history of the River and it's importance in Singapore's development, it is well worth it, especially on a hot day.
A 30 mins cruise costs $15.
The Singapore river has been an important spot for trade ever since Singapore was founded in 1819. At Clarke Quay and Boat Quay the traders came in with boats and sold their goods to shops and inhabitants.
Nowadays the area has transformed into a nightlife scene which is the best in Singapore. Five blocks are filled with restaurants, pubs and nightclubs with many different styles. You can choose to sit next to the river for a dinner or a beer, or head into one of the side streets for more options. The whole area is vibrant and full of people both day and night. It's colorful and full of happenings and events.
Due to the status prices are a bit higher than normally in Singapore, and that means it's pretty high. The alcohol tax in the country makes sure you'll get a rather big hole in your wallet after a night out.
Good thing with this is that is rarely people get really drunk, so it's safe and nice in the area.
Along the river there are plenty of nice restaurants. My favourites when it comes to bars is Beer Market where the price settings works as on the stock market. When a beer/drink is popular the price goes up, but if you instead choose a drink that less people wants you can find it for a lower price.
The Clinic is also a cool place, where you'll be seated either in a wheelchair or in a hospital bed. And why not get your drink served in a needle? No worries though, you'll put it in your mouth, not in your arm...

Cool place! Plus you can choose which room to party! There's hiphop, trance...etc!

There is also the upward bungee and a slingapore swing (its massive) worth checking it out!!
Singapore generally has not much to view, except for the city view, high rise building, but yet, I do found a place, not so bad for night view and some happening night life in Clark Quay. I used to stay in Service Apartment in near to UE Square, Park Avenue Suite. Price is average, comfort is moderate, clean but cleaners are mainly from China. The night view was nice though in Clark Quay.
There are many bars and restaurant, but mainly expats like to have dinner or drinks in Clark Quay.
I may update you more specific places worth visiting in Singapore... for now, go shopping!
