From exquisite dining to watering holes with live entertainment, the Singapore River is home to a plethora of activities waiting to be discovered.
The lifeblood of Singapore is the river. In the early days when the city was a British outpost, Singapore River was the colony’s main trade artery and the centre of its commercial activity. Today, the banks of the river are still abuzz, though the bustle of entrepôt trade has been replaced with an array of cultural spots, restaurants and after-dark hangouts.
It’s also a place of romance. Riverside cafés and restaurants develop a charm of their own and old bridges become a perfect, picturesque spot for couples. Best explored in the afternoon and into the night, Singapore River has it all—idyllic views, fascinating history, incredible art, and amazing food and drink.
Take a quiet stroll along this lovely waterway and you’ll see why Singapore River offers a sense of romance and the heartbeat of the city.
