Experience 1 - River Cruise
A truly must-go attraction for new tourists in Singapore, a romantic cruise down the historic Singapore River allows you to get up close with all its famous quays – Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and Robertson Quay – and relieve the good ol’ days where this humble water body was the economic lifeline of the city. Wow your senses with spectacular sights of sleek skyscrapers in a distance, refurbished floating restaurants and laid-back converted go-downs before dancing the night away at this trendy nightspot heaven after the 30-minute cruise is over!Highlights

Sail down the famed Singapore River, which saw the beginnings of an ancient fishing village called Temasek, later renamed Singapura.
For more than 150 years, this 3.2km long river has been functioning as the lifeline of Singapore.
In the evening, this historical riverside quay surreptitiously transforms itself into a mega night bazaar, where tourists can lose themselves in a maze of internationally acclaimed restaurants as well as discoveries of refurbished warehouses packed with curios, gifts and specialty shops.
Replete with sightseeing charm, visitors can revisit the history of Singapore via a contemplative cruise down the river. The waterfront go-downs play host to a colourful kaleidoscope of restaurants, pubs, wine bars, entertainment haunts and retail shops, raising the destination's romantic and hip quotient that allows city dwellers to bask happily under the moonlight.
1. The river is mostly calm. However, those without sea legs are advised to take a sea-sickness pill for optimal experience.
2. The River Cruise features indoor and outdoor sections. For the best view, walk beyond the canopy and grab a seat there.
