Clarke Quay is a prime example of Singapore's ability to reinvent itself. In the colonial era, this was a hive of industrial and maritime activity. Clarke Quay is named after the second governor of Singapore, Sir Andrew Clarke, who played an integral part in ensuring that the quay became a vital cog in the Singaporean economy. Even now, you can see reminders of its past in the shophouses and warehouses that have been renovated. Today, it still continues to be a significant form of revenue for the city state in its ability to draw in diners and partygoers.
Though Singaporean food is easy to come by at Clarke Quay, many menus here are very international – Italian, French, Chinese, Indian and Mexican are just a few you can find. The quality is usually excellent, although beware of tourist traps closer to the riverfront. After eating, prop up the bar at one of the many watering holes which look out over the Singapore River.
Although Clarke Quay is attractive enough by day, it comes into its own by night. You don't have to wait until the weekend to experience a party atmosphere. Street performers, magic acts, nightclubs and fun fairs ensure that the area is buzzing until dawn.
You can also go on the Singapore River itself – take one of the traditional "bumboat" tours or otherwise go to one of the floating Chinese junk restaurants and pubs moored up along the banks. Water taxis make for an enjoyable trip back towards your accommodation as well.
Every third weekend of the month, a flea market pitches up at Clarke Quay, by Central Fountain Square. The type of produce depends on the month, so check ahead to see what's on when you're visiting.
Clarke Quay is on the Singapore River in central downtown. It is therefore within walking distance of many of the city's bigger hotels. If using public transport, hop on a bus to the Clarke Quay terminal.
