Arrived early and ordered Peking Duck- served in three style,,, was glad with the service as duck was sliced by cook and assisted by the Manager, ordered herbal soups which was appetizing and flavourful. Great memory as the firework from the indoor stadium is right at the window... cheers

You can enjoy the skyline. Basically, UOB plaza is office building. But, they have Chinese restaurant called Si Chuan Dou Hua on 60th floor.

It's located in raffles place. It's the downstairs area of an office building. There is nothing to do here (unless wait if you caught in the rain ). They have some sculptures here by botoro. That's it.

It has a very great view over Singapore, that is the positive part. But when you are up there it just load music, self-service bar and cheap funitiures. I can't understand why they don't do it with class.

UOB Plaza is across Boat Quay and has amazing view where you can sit beside the river. Grab couple of drinks or food with chain of restaurants within 100 meters walk.

Just sit by the river, watch the office workers knock off and leave for home, or seek comfort in one of the nearby pubs and bars. Watch some of them take part in post-work Zumba classes by the river or wait till the lights light up at night. Beautiful place for a stroll

If your driving into town, this is a pretty good location, walking distance to many popular places and the price of parking during the day is not to high. After 6 pm it is very cheap too!

Over all an office building with a high ceiling at the concourse level.. the building looks out to the Singapore river and it is a good location for photography.

Staying in The Quays

Neighbourhood Profile
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 riverfront teems with joggers, dog walkers, and those getting their caffeine fix over brunch or enjoying a burger and a beer. No matter what you’re up for, the three Quays have something to keep you happy, day or night.
