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.
