    How To Get To Clarke Quay

    Clarke Quay is a historical river quay in Singapore, it is home to many shops and restaurants and is a great place to chill out with the whole family. The feature that attracts many people to Clarke Quay is the pastel coloured buildings – so much so it almost looks like Havana in Cuba. It is great for night life as there are plenty of bars and nightclubs on the quay for locals and tourists. Clarke Quay was designed and built in 1993 and was renovated 10 years later to what it is now. The buildings that house the shops and restaurants were originally warehouses that have been converted to house the strips of shops there today.

    After we explored Clarke Quay, we decided to hop on the Marina Bay River Cruise boat that you can catch from Clarke Quay. An adult ticket costs S$25 and children cost S$15 for a round trip. The river cruise takes you around Clarke Quay, Boat Quay which is in front of the shophouses and around Marina Bay giving you lots of history and information along the way. You go under 6 of the 8 bridges in the Marina Bay area and you are given lots information about the bridges and how they were built.
