One of the best spots in Singapore for alfresco dining. And who would have foreseen that back when the area was still a cargo-loading bay? A popular hangout for locals, expatriates and tourists, Boat Quay now boasts chic cafes, high-end restaurants, yuppie pubs and designer galleries. Rather than cargoes of trade, you find the riverside today awash with tables set up for alfresco dining. This picturesque, though busy, stretch offers great views of the Singapore River and part of the colonial district.
I cant wait to return back there to experience the life in Singapore!

I like the unity of Songapore as they celebrate Racial Harmony Day! No criticism are heard by me in Singapore in my three months tour around Singapore! Wish you good luck Singapore and celebrate my love with you on 9th August! Boat Quay is a soothing place ahd crowded place when during special occasions. Bless you Singapore! And to the person who submit this photo: good photography skills!
I was at Boat Quay And saw an Indoor Tanning Studio behid Boat Quay (7 Lorong Telok). I went in to try and and was very happy with the service in the shop was excellent.
Boat Quay, not only have food, wine & dine. There are also shop around like Hair saloon and Indoor Tanning Studio.
This is a great place to explore.
Fantasic night out if a little expensive by local standards but no more expensive than back home in the UK. Try "Hot Stones" restaurant for an unusual way to have your meat cooked and then find one of the many bars have a Tiger Beer,chill out and don't be put off by people trying to get you into their restaurants or bars, a polite no thanks is all that it takes.

Restaurants lined up by the river offering wonderful sea food, thai curries, indian food. Everyone is trying to pull you in to try their restaurant with offers like 20-30 % discount, no GST, free wine or beer etc. The atmosphere is not the classy kind but not bad too.
Do you know, before we decide what to eat, we just need to say "no,thank you", untill we can find what we need to take this night. And yes, because there are so many choices here! Just walking down the boardwalk, we must have had 25 different representatives from different restaurants approach us and tell us why we should eat there. It can get overwhelming, but I loved the busy, buzzing atmosphere. And at night is when everything really comes alive. do you like seafood? How about some INdian naan bread? Or maybe some satay? Or Thai-Chinese, or some of vietnamese. You can satisfy every taste bud here. All the restaurants offer outside, riverside dining, and the service is exceptional. Your biggest predicament will be deciding what to have for dessert! Finish the night off with a cruise on the Singapore river. Enjoyed your dinner... ;D
There's bars, and there's restaurants, and the area itself is really nice to look at. The food good, but not the best in Singapore by far. Plus, since your by the water you'll pay more for your meal. Oh yeah, in my experience I'm guarenteed to get hassled to try food every five steps (truely you will).
If you get a little tired of getting solicited for a table every few steps, you can do what I do. Put your hands on your stomach and mumble nonsense about the huge imaginery meal you just had. Works every time :)
Clark Quay offers close to the same atmosphere, a little less hasseling, and some of the more popular night clubs at the moment (Spring 2006). For sports I would head even further up river to Robertson Walk which just finished it's remodelling project.
