Lying at the mouth of the Singapore River, Clark Quay brings old and new together for a delightful shopping, dining and dancing experience. Nighttime is the time to visit Clarke Quay, although there are over 150 shops to explore. The market at Clark Quay still boasts hawkers, pushcarts, godowns and five-foot-way merchants, in addition to modern retailers, world class restaurants, peaceful retreats and some very exciting entertainment opportunities.
Rich with history, Clarke Quay can be explored on foot, or by trishaw or bumboat. Singapore Duck tours, located on the Jetty, can provide you with touring information. The Sunday flea market is full of treasures and every day feels like a market day festival on the Quay. Silks, souvenirs, wooden crafts are all available for browsing and purchase as you read the historical markers celebrating the Quay’s past. Unique Fine Pearl & Gem is the place to find exquisite jewellery.
There is nothing as exciting as the G-Max Reverse Bungy found in WhampoaGarden. Riders are catapulted 60 meters into the air at 200kph for a full five minutes. If you are feeling creative, The Royal Selangor Process Demonstration is a must see for locals and tourists alike. The tour of this pewter factory shares old and new techniques for creating beautiful works of art. You can even try your hand at making your own! If you prefer being pampered, try the services available at Spring Spa.
Wining and dining are in abundance at Clarke Quay, which is famous for its nightlife. Attica & Attica Too offer an alfresco bar, a sofa lounge, a Balinese courtyard and a rocking dance club. If you prefer a game of billiards, Baize/China One can serve up a sumptuous meal in an atmosphere steeped in Old Shanghai. For the truly adventurous, the Bar Cocoon @ Forbidden City transports visitors back to ancient China, complete with opium beds surrounded by luxurious silk drapes and Gotham Penthouse delves in the risqué with HOT male dancers for your viewing pleasure. If you prefer something more down-home American, bring the kids to Brewerkz for a frosty mug and a robust meal. Or, if you prefer meandering, the food courts and carts offer a wide variety of delectables at reasonable prices
At night, you can enjoy laser shows beamed from the rooftops as you absorb the sights and sounds of this vibrant community. Ancient and modern, Clark Quay can give you a shopping and dining experience that will last you a lifetime.
