Clarke Quay & Riverside Attractions

What to See in Clarke Quay & Riverside

Singapore Riverside is a moving exhibition in itself. Watch life go by in a never-ending collage of people, boats and tours. Also riverside is one of the most exciting attractions on the island - the G-Max Reverse Buggy. You've got to be certified nuts, very brave or hopefully both in order to willingly get launched skyward at 200kmph. But then again it'll give you the thrill of a lifetime.

Marking the spot where Singapore's founder Sir Stamford Raffles first landed is a regal white marble statue of the great man.

G-Max Reverse Bungy

The most adrenalin-inducing activity in Singapore has got to be the G-Max Reverse Bungy, Singapore’s first ever bungy. Be launched skywards at 200km per hour to a height of 60 metres for approximately five minutes; the experience is not unlike being an astronaut in a rocket launch. Also for a few more dollars extra, riders can get a T-shirt and a DVD recording of themselves in action, taken by an on-board camera.

Raffles Place

Raffles Place and its environs, situated right outside the entrance of Raffles Place MRT, are now occupied by skyscrapers such as the UOB Plaza and OUB Building. It is Singapore's business and financial centre, and is often known as the Central Business District. From the viewing room on the 28th floor of UOB Plaza One, which is open to the public, you can get a spectacular view of Singapore River, the civic district and its colonial structures and Boat Quay. Still there are some reminders left from when Singapore was a bustling colonial outpost. Read More...

Singapore River

The Singapore River, which cuts through the heart of the city, was for many decades the main artery of trade and commerce for the British. Today, the stately Victorian and neo-classical Roman structures still stand proudly along the river banks, but they jostle for space with the many concrete-and-glass skyscrapers that have shot up in more modern times.

Statues of Sir Stamford Raffles

Its replica, made in pure white poly-marble, stands at North Boat Quay to mark the spot where he first land ed on the island in 1819. Both areas are popular with locals, especially on cool evenings.
