The Boat Quay area, on the banks of the river, is hugely popular for dinner and drinks among the ex-pats who live in Singapore. This is where you can find some of the best bars, pubs and restaurants in the city.
During the 19th century, Boat Quay was the financial centre of Singapore. It's said that in 1960, three quarters of the commercial exchanges in the entire country took place here.
While on the banks of the river, restaurants are most common, on Circular Road, a street parallel to Boat Quay, two out of three establishments are pubs.
If you're looking for somewhere to have a drink and kick the night off, look no further.
Boat Quay is a must-see, but it is true that the overly attentive waiters do mean it loses a point or two. If you ask us, the best place to eat dinner is Clarke Quay.
