Fodor's Expert Review Boat Quay

CBD Neighborhood/Street

Local entrepreneurs have created a mélange of eateries and bars to satisfy diverse tastes at this popular entertainment hub along the Singapore River. Between 7 pm and midnight the area swells with an after-work crowd of people enjoying drinks along the water. At the end of Boat Quay and named after Lord Elgin, a British governor-general of India, Elgin Bridge links Chinatown to the colonial quarter. The original rickety wooden structure was replaced in 1863 with an iron bridge imported from Calcutta; the current concrete bridge was installed in 1926.
