Clarke Quay was named after the second Governor of Singapore, Sir Andrew Clarke. The former trade center on the Singapore River today consists of five blocks, arranged in a star-shaped arrangement, which is associated with different cultural areas. The center forms an open well. The restaurants, bars, small shops, wine taverns and clubs are now ranked in the inspired settings of the old shops, which are reminiscent of dolls’ houses.
In the evenings, the different nations like to present themselves with cultural performances such as Indian and Chinese dances. Clarke Quay is completely covered and is a traffic-free zone, which strengthens the market atmosphere.
Particularly beautiful are also the light plays on the ceiling sails and the well in the evening hours. Clarke Quay is the party mile in Singapore, while Boat Quay is the quieter counterpart. In Clarke Quay, mainly young people meet. During the day you can start a boat trip across the Singapore River from here.
