Boat Quay Overview

Boat Quay, situated at the southern bank of the Singapore River was once the busiest port of old Singapore during the British colonial days serving as the key trading point for traders.

The area which was once swampy with raft houses for laborers and traders is now a hip place for alfresco dining and pubs. The row of shophouses lining the river now houses many bars, spas and restaurants offering from local, seafood to international cuisines.

Traces of the past can still be seen through the bumboats which were once used for transporting goods along the river and are now converted to carrying passengers for a river cruise.

Take a walk along the pedestrian side or take the river cruise or just sit and have a drink by the river and enjoy the truly unique experience of the old and the new which is essentially Boat Quay!

Close to the Central Business District of Singapore, Boat Quay attract after office crowds for a drink before heading home. To get to Boat Quay, the nearest MRT would be "Raffles Place Station" From there walking distance can get you to this awesome place filled with bars and pub.
