It is the less wilder side of Clark Quay. Good place to go if you are looking for a good meal by the river. or when you do not find a place in Clark Quay.

Whether you will enjoy Boat Quay entirely depends on whether or not you want to be surrounded by expats. It is full of expats almost all of the time but if that's what you're looking for then head down! Plenty of bars etc, around $10-12++...More

Nice to walk around, except from the lunch/dinner time where there is an army of waiters trying to attract customers to overly expensive factory-restaurant... Better to walk from the other side, quieter, better view

Walking along Boat Quay is always worthwhile just for the experience against the waterfront. Indian and Chinese food restaurants with seating on the water are littered about, along with a few bars and shops. Walking down from Clark Quay is about a 10 minute stroll.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the
