Clarke Quay

Colonial District, the Quays & Marina Bay

Named after Singapore’s second colonial governor, Sir Andrew Clarke, this is the busiest and most popular of Singapore's three quays. How much time you spend in its plethora of bars, restaurants and clubs depends upon your taste in aesthetics. This is Singapore at its most hyper-touristy, a kitsch, pastel-coloured sprawl of mostly run-of-the-mill eateries and lad-and-ladette drinking holes.
