About: The Singapore River has three sub-zones: Robertson Quay, Clarke Quay and Boat Quay.

History: Singapore River together with Kallang, Whampoa, Rochor and Geylang rivers, form about a third of Singapore’s drainage catchment areas and are collectively known as the Kallang Basin. But the Singapore River has always taken centre-stage, being the focal point of trade since Raffles’ time. This is where the first immigrants came to Singapore and helped transformed Singapore from a fishing village among the busiest ports in the world.

 

Residential: There are several private housing units in the Robertson Quay area but in general, areas around the Singapore River are primarily focused on leisure activities such as restaurants, clubs and bars.

 

Interesting Highlights : The merlion park at the river mouth or at the landing site of Raffles. Visit Omar Kampong Melaka Mosque, the oldest mosque here. Boat Quay is a popular spot for tourists though touting is very rampant. There are also other spots in Singapore River that you can visit :
