This area is great for having a nice dinner right beside the Singapore river while enjoying the lights and music from everywhere or you can simply enjoy a drink with friends in one of these many bars around you

Nice weather especially at night breezy relaxing ambiance. Pricey food places, touristy in fact. But overall you need to experience this place especially at night.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will

features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
