This majestic river that slowly descends from the Singapore River Valley into the Marina Reservoir in the southern part of Singapore will allow you to see many historical plus newly built cultural sites to gaze upon as you leisurely power along with the Singapore River Cruise.
The popular main sightseeing points of interest include Merlion Park, Theatres on the Bay and the Fullerton Hotel.
Singapore’s architecturally designed Singapore River bridges include Anderson Bridge, Cavenagh Bridge, Elgin Bridge, Coleman Bridge, Read Bridge, Ord Bridge, Clemenceau Bridge, Alkaff Bridge, and Jiak Kim Bridge depending how far upriver you meander to.
Recommended away from the midday sun period is a morning or afternoon short cruise in a shared Bumboat or River Taxi along the national river. This cruise, that takes in historic colonial sites, run continuously from around 9.00am to 10.30pm. Each tour takes about 30 – 60 minutes. Nightly you can also book a Singapore river cruise with dinner served onboard.

Would I Visit Again?
I wouldn’t do the river tour again as once is enough, but eating again at both Clarke and Boat Quays would be high on my redo list. I would still recommend it to others for a relaxing break from walking around.
