Full description

Explore Singapore's most important landmarks on this river cruise on a bumboat. Learn about the city's spectacular mix of heritage and modern architecture while passing historic monuments, quays, and bridges.

Begin the Singapore river cruise where Sir Stamford Raffles first stepped foot onto Singapore, along the northern banks of the Singapore River.

Learn about the contrast between the rich and old-world architecture of the quays and the modern skyscrapers in the central business district. See shophouses along the river banks that have been beautifully restored, which now house chic dining and entertainment spots.

Discover the grand bridges of Singapore, such as the Cavenagh Bridge, Clemenceau Bridge, and Anderson Bridge. Learn about the pivotal role that the Singapore River has played in Singapore's progress by visiting the various historical landmarks: the Merlion, Raffles Landing Site, and Esplanade.

Beautiful views around the bay with an English commentary but I am sure other languages are available as Nationality asked. I imaging it would be another good experience with all the lights at night. A helpful point the website did not give the correct location to board the boat currently Feb 2022 it is outside Hooters

We didn't find it easy to locate from online directions and had to ask at one of their kiosks. However, once on the landing stage at Clarke Quay, we enjoyed a detailed commentary as we passed by many landmarks and points of interest along the river and out into Marina Bay. Some great views and photo opportunities. A really good introduction and orientation to Singapore.

I opted to sit outside, but that meant I couldn’t really hear the commentary. That didn’t really bother me overall. It was a nice relaxing boat ride seeing the places I had visited during the previous few days from a different angle. Overall I enjoyed it and I’m glad I bought a ticket.
