Once the lifeline of Singapore, the river still remains a city icon. Boat tours by Singapore River Cruises meander slowly along the river, passing grand colonial buildings, shophouses, ornate bridges and quayside life. Boats operate 0900-2230 and leave regularly.

Singapore excursions

Pulau Ubin

The quiet, pretty, tree-covered island is a popular getaway and a slice of authentic, old Singapore. It is easily reached by bumboat from Changi Point Ferry Terminal. Once there, the best option is to rent a bicycle from one of the shops near the jetty and explore at your leisure.
