Singapore River - Best Dining - Shopping Location

Imaginary Singapore, what did we see? An ideal river bank was deep enough to be a port for a traditional trading outpost backing time, it was this miracle discovery that sparked the birth of spectacular modern Singapore.

The Singapore River is approximately 3 km. in length and passes from the Kim Seng Bridge through the Central Area (main commercial area) in the southern portion of Singapore, before emptying into Marina Bay and the Singapore Strait.  The river itself is steeped in history.Singapore River

The Raffles Landing Site along the river is where Sir Stamford Raffles, the ‘founder’ of Singapore, first touched ground in 1819 and decided to make Singapore a main trading post.

Valuable products such as birds’ nests, spices and shark fins were all exported to other parts of Asia and Europe.Singapore River

The most historic quay is Boat Quay on Singapore River,  which was the first main trading post.

The rapid demand for products resulted in the creation of Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay.

Beautiful monuments and statues can be found all along the river, as well as unique artisan style shops, boutiques and delicious eateries.

Tongkangs are a type of wooden boat that was most commonly used during the 19th century to carry products along the river.

Today, many of the tongkangs have been refurbished and converted into floating restaurants.

There are also many boat excursions and cruises that offer an enjoyable, relaxing time along this famous river.
