The Singapore River Cruise is a must-see attraction for all tourists in Singapore! The Singapore River Cruise is a unique tour of the famous Singapore River, but especially Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and the Marina Bay. The tour uses an electric bumboat (kids will laugh at the name) and it has both indoor and outdoor seating. The cruise is really educational and has even won awards for its services to tourism and sightseeing, making it a great activity for those who want a fun way to learn more about Singapore’s history and heritage.
The Singapore River Cruise starts in Boat Quay, which looks very different now to how it looked even just 100 years ago when it would have been filled with labourers carrying sacks of rice and unloading produce from the docks. Today, it’s a colourful area filled with cosmopolitan bars and restaurants, propping up Singapore’s international cuisine scene. You’ll also gain valuable insights into the changes experienced in the Clarke Quay district. Clarke Quay lies at the mouth of the Singapore River and was once filled with bumboats unloading cargo. Today, you cruise around the areas’ colourful mix of lights, restaurants, shops and entertainment. Not one to miss.
