the other side of the Singapore River Embankment is Boat Quay and although Clarke Quay is the more popular of the two, Boat Quay is also packing them in full of locals and tourists. Located on the southern bank of the upstream portion of the Singapore River, the Boat Quay is a place of historical importance that dates back to the 1860s. The two- and three-storey shophouses in that area of Boat Quay, with their characteristic five-foot way beneath projecting upper floors, were preserved and transformed into new businesses the at present you will see the results as Boat Quay is a nice destination for eating and drinking and some lounge scene and the good part of it is you can just cross the bridge and hop via a brisk 10 minute walk to Clarke Quay at the other end of the Embankment for another round of fun and vice versa.
