    Rejuvenating after COVID
    Obviously not the same as pre COVID, places boarded up, but looks like a few are reopening. Still plenty of people around to give it its atmosphere. Plenty of choice of eateries and things to do, including walking over the many bridges. Great at night with the lights!

    Favourite bit of Singapore
    I recommend doing the cruise around sunset to get some photos and to enjoy the serenity of the bumboat. Follow that up with a beer and some finger food at one of the riverside eateries. End your night with a stroll to admire the city lights and get some dessert. Perfect evening in Singapore!

    Wow, where do I even begin with Clarke Quay? This vibrant riverside destination in Singapore absolutely stole my heart. From the moment I stepped foot into the area, I was greeted with a lively atmosphere and a captivating blend of colors, sounds, and aromas.

    It’s great when it’s open
    Well this place seems to be getting some renovations done at the moment. It’s a very vibrant place at night time, but during the day, honestly, it was pretty dead. It’s hard to even get something to eat or drink. There is nothing opens until well after 11. If you’re a visitor, don’t expect any shopping or food to be open, but it’s nice enough to walk around , but if you stay late enough you can get a bum boat and have a little tour out into the area where Marina Bay Sands -is it’s quite pleasant

    Nice hangout place
    Good place to hangout especially for couples. You can have all kind of food even Indian too. The place is better for nonveg food and boozing, but we enjoyed a lot though we are vegetarian. The food cost is same as of Boat Quay i.e., in fine dine category.

    Bustling
    It’s a bustling place all the day around. Singapore river where you can book cruise tour for 45 minutes, dine in in one of many restaurants and cafes in the area or do a good walk at the free smoking garden. At night, enjoy the beautiful lights reflected in the river.

It is colourful and vibrant at night, especially during the festive season. Clarke Quay is a fantastic place to dine and or have a few drinks.

We were here for a stroll in the evening. Vibrant as usual, with plenty of locals & tourists alike. A good spot for an evening out in the city.

We caught a taxi here to take a cruise on the Singapore River/reservoir. Other than the 5 people working in the ticket booth and 2 waiters in the nearby Zorba restaurant, there were no other people in sight. Such a difference from when last here, the place was bustling and a had a fantastic atmosphere. The major redevelopment currently doesn't entice people, could be interesting to see how many survive in business until the work is completed. 6 of us departed on the cruise, we were the only returnees to have lunch at Zorbas on return.

We made the effort to go to Clarke Quay as it was "a place to see" in Singapore. Went on the train, hard to find the area I was looking for on the river. Got lost. Eventually found it. Nothing going on there. Noone around. Disappointing lunch as they weren't actually serving the food in the pictures advertised. Lots of walking with nothing to see. Tried getting a taxi home to hotel, taxi rank shut. More walking, eventually caught the train back. Don't bother going here during the day. Perhaps it comes alive at night?

I have rated this three stars for a couple of reasons.During the day the place is virtually closed with very few bars open.The reason?Its actually a night club by the river.Don’t get me wrong because at night when it is all lit up it looks beautiful.However….a pint of beer is about £15….yup £15…..bottle of vodka to share £80.And if you want to eat…..well that’s another story all together.The hawker stalls with cheap food have gone.It’s the most expensive place I have ever been to…and I travel lots!
With family take the boat trip from 1pm……boats empty and you get 40 mins around the harbour.
If you are single or with a partner and no kids and with more money than you know what to do with…..get there at eight and get bladdered before you go…😂😂

The once shining light of Singapore is now like the rest the city a major construction site. Avoid the area at all costs. Any restaurants still open are charging a fortune for dinner. Singapore is a place that is now way over priced and not with coming to as a tourist spot. I have been here over 10 times and I am so disappointed that I will use Singapore as a stop over only. Longtime before a return
