Singapore has taken advantage of its location by effectively incorporating its bountiful waterfronts into the city’s landscape. I really enjoyed visiting these areas; there’s something relaxing about staring out across the water. I visited three particular areas and collected a few photos while I was there.
Marina Bay is home to the city’s signature skyline, where you’ll find the Singapore Flyer and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. It’s also where Singapore’s mythical Merlion — the country’s symbol — keeps watch. Marina Bay is beautiful during the daytime and stunning after dark.
I agree with what the website says: Boat Quay is a great place to chill out. One of the banks is lined with restaurants and pubs, and it’s a terrific place for al fresco dining. Personally, I opted for a pint of beer at RedDot BrewHouse, but your options are numerous.
Clarke Quay is popular with locals, expats, and visitors. There are tons of restaurants. If you can’t find something to eat here, you’re just too dang picky. There’s a mall. You can take a cruise on the Singapore River. It’s across the street from an entrance to Fort Canning Park. I came here twice, my second visit being on a Friday night. It was crowded … and lively … and fun.
