A historical place, which in the 1860s was one of the most important trading locations in the old port. Three-quarters of all boat trips were carried out from here, and so quickly stockpiles and shops were built on the Singapore River.
Today, the old houses are home to bars and restaurants, with a magnificent view over the Singapore River to the Colonial Quarter and the business district.
Boat Quay is quieter and more family-oriented compared to Clarke Quay. With the relocation of the harbor, the importance of Boat Quay changed for the city from a trading place to a tourist magnet.
