Bumboat, Singapore: 7 reviews and 18 photos

by balhannah

This was included in our Singapore Sightseeing and Attractions card.
The Bumboat has quite a history, it used to take Chinese workers out to ships and they would load the cargo and fetch it back to the warehouses along the River. The Warehouse areas are now, Clark Quay, Robertson Quay & Boat Quay.

From the River, you get a different view of the area and a recording tells you the history of the area, and about the bridges, quite interesting.
Seating is wooden, it has a diesel engine and painted eyes on the front to find its way!
Its a good way to see the sights this end of the Singapore River.

Boats leave every 10 mins.

Directions: Boat Quay, near Stamford Raffles statue
