    A family night out

    by Ausviet Written Jun 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you want to enjoy a family night out at Clarke Quay without spending a lot of money, you can go there at night after having dinner somewhere else cheaper ,then have a river cruise (It's free if you book a Singapore stopover holiday package). After that you can have some cake or a drink there to enjoy the atmosphere of Clarke Quay.

    Change your money before going there

    by Ausviet Written Jun 17, 2006

    We stayed at Furama City Centre Hotel in Chinatown which was only 10 minutes walk to Clarke Quay so it was not a proplem to get to Clarke Quay. The first day when we arrived to Singapore , we went straight to Clarke Quay after checking in the hotel. We wanted to have dinner there but then we remembered that we did not have enough money in Singaporean dollars, we asked around and found only one money exchange counter. (It was about 6PM then). The rate was not very good but we had no choice. I think Clarke Quay is not a good place to get your money changed.

    Clarke Quay is loaded with restaurants (Chinese and Indian) which are along the river. It's a nice place to have dinner.

    Workers stand in front of restaurants offering you deals on dinner. Every restaurant was like this.

    So many offers it was hard to select a place to eat.

    Clarke Quay is Singapore's only riverside village combining of dining,shopping and entertainment.There are 5 blocks of building housing 60 godowns and shophouses, restored to their original 19th century style. These contain a spread of specialty restaurants, themed pubs and wine bars, and pedestrianised streets.

    If you like night-life,you may not want to miss this exciting place.

    Looking for the perfect place to chill out with a bottle of ice cold beer? Clarke Quay for you then. Walk down clarke quay and you will be greeted by pubs, restaurants and clubs. If you are a party animal, be sure to drop by Ministry Of Sound @ clarke quay. The only branch in asia. If you are not a party animal, not to worry. You can also sit back relax and have a cup of coffee and do some people watching.

    Clarke Quay from on the Singapore River Cruise
    2 more images

    Another of the 3 famous Quays along the Singapore River. Clarke Quay was once lined with warehouses to accommodate the mass amount of goods being shipped up stream from Boat Quay.

    Today like Boat Quay, Clarke Quay has adjusted to the times and now serves as one of Singapore's thriving night spots. The Bars in Clarke Quay are a little more laid back and make a great spot to get your first drinks to start off the night. Also there are some good restaurants along the 5 blocks that make up Clarke Quay. My favorite being "Hooters!" Yes the famous International chain. If you been over seas for a while, you can use a break from the local cuisine and have some good old "Hot Naked Chicken Wings" while relaxing along the Singapore River. If doesnt get better then that.

    A great area along the river to just sit back and relax while enjoying the wonderful city of Singapore.

    Boat & Clarke Quay

    by Blatherwick Written Aug 9, 2005
    Clarke Quay

    Boat Quay is a stretch of restaurants and pubs along the western bank of the Singapore River, between South Bridge Road and the UOB Plaza, and is popular with the young adult office workers and foreign expatriates.

    Clark Quay is about ten minutes' walk upriver from Boat Quay. It has a wide range of pubs, restaurants, and shops with occasional promotional events. Both of these places are just a cool places to hang out and sit around as you take in the skyline of Singapore.

    Boat Trip

    Singapore from a Boat

    Well, as we only had a 2 1/2 days stay in Singapore, my advises can of course only be incomplete!

    We did a boat trip twice. Once on our second evening (within a "Singapore at night"-tour, offered by a local agency in our hotel) and another one within the last few hours next morning - just before we had to leave for the airport. That was a simple coincidence as people from another hotel, whom we met walking at the river while a boat was arriving, told us, that this was their "taxi boat ". They agreed to us joining them on their way into the city. We made the trip "down town", dropped them of and went "up" the river back to our hotel. This took approx. 1 1/2 hours and iwas absolutely great! So relaxing! And the views were splendid! It was not expensive at all and was a lovely ending of our Singapore Stay!

    Both boat trips were nice, but totally different, as Singapore at night looks totally different from Singapore at day. Moreover our day trip started "outside" the city and gave us a lovely impression of what the river banks look like there.

    Stamford Raffles statue

    You'll see the statue of Sir Stamford Raffles, founder of modern Singapore along the Clarke and Boat Quay.

    I didn't notice any homeless or police officers in Singapore, there are suppose to be patrol
    cameras in public areas. For a city-state that just recently prohibited Cosmopolitan and Sex and the City, it does allow Maxim, FHM and other 'sexy' mags, of course no pornography or other 'immoral' products are
    unavailable, same in Malaysia.

    There is no 'sin' in Singapore...wonder what Sir Stamford Raffles would think of the city he created, especially given its formerly sinful reputation.

    The beautiful Clarke Quay is very close to metro station NE5.
    Full of nice bars and restaurants.
    Admission fee for the 30-minutes boat cruise on the Singapore river is 15 SGD.

    You can take a boat from either Clark Quay or Boat Quay. It is about $20/pax but prices may differ. It will take you to the Merlion and back. A nice view of the CBD buidlings.

    Walking the Quays

    There are plenty of photo opportunities when you walking the quays, so take them.

    Also, don't forget your hat and sunnies. It's bloody hot attempting the touristy walking in the middle of the day.

    Relaxing walk around Clarke Quay

    by xxangelxx Written Dec 29, 2004
    Clarke Quay lit up at night

    There are a few shops, one sells beautiful scarves. You can sit and eat at the cafes, and it's a good place to go in the evening - lovely view.
