Famous Restaurant district
Boat Quay Live Seafood Singapore
Boat Quay Live Seafood Singapore is one of the cities best districts for food. Very popular after work meeting place for office workers, in fact this quaint little waterfront area is dwarfed by high rise office buildings.
Original buildings preserved
Boat Quay is the name of the road along the quay, which has been converted into a pedestrian mall. As early as 1822, Sir Stamford Raffles had already designated the area south of the river to be developed as a Chinese settlement. Boat Quay was completed in 1842 and the Chinese, mostly traders and laborers, settled there in large numbers. Conditions were squalid but Boat Quay flourished, rapidly exceeding in volume the trade on the north bank where the Europeans had their offices, houses and government buildings. WIKIPEDIA.
Established in the 19th century
Boat Quay is one of the early roads established in the 19th century when the Singapore River was the main port area of the colonial city.

A very popular meeting place for expats, here is a group of friends dining at an Italian restaurant at Boat Quay.
Chili crab is my favorite
These monster mud crabs are imported from Sri Lanka are are delicious. Rather expensive of course like most things in Singapore, however you can haggle over the price at Boat Quay.
Alive & kicking
