Whether we travel for work or leisure, quality hotel rooms are a must. There’s just something about great accommodation that comes in the form of clean facilities, complete amenities, and friendly staff. While all those things are important, one factor must never be forgotten: the hotel’s location. You might be staying in a sweet suite (no pun intended), but the experience can be further heightened by everything else surrounding the establishment.
In this article, find out why hotels in Clarke Quay and Boat Quay should be at the top of your list.
Boat and Clarke Quay Singapore—Why their hotels?
Clarke Quay and Boat Quay are both boosting with exuberance, housing some of Singapore’s most popular nightclubs, bars, shopping, and cultural tours. People frequent these places to indulge themselves in culture and entertainment. The streets and architecture of the district retain elements of its rich past as a fishing and commercial trade hub. The essence of their history are clearly embedded in today’s developments for both locals and tourists to blissfully witness.
That being said, hotels near or that are conveniently located in the aforementioned places will allow guests to have a good access to the history, entertainment, food, and other aspects of Singapore’s culture. Going around Boat and Clarke Quay Central will truly make your trip worthwhile.
Activities in the Area
The main attraction of Clarke Quay and Boat Quay is the historic Singapore River which forms the central artery for its thriving nightlife scene. Although one can surely bathe in the lively atmosphere during the night, it is also recommended to soak in the beauty of the surroundings during the day.
Hop on the Singapore river cruise and witness the journey taken by the early settlers of Singapore through the city skyline and colonial structures. While onboard, capture memorable photos of the majestic Marina Bay Sands and the iconic Singapore Merlion Statue. You’ll also see other significant landmarks such as the Esplanade Theatre, where you can catch free cultural performances, and the ArtScience Museum which showcases pieces that are a delightful combination of art and science.
Another great spot to visit is Raffles Place. While being at the center of the Financial District, it is also where you can find a concentration of towering skyscrapers of the city.
During the night, party away at any of the bars and clubs in the vicinity. Grab a drink at Chupitos Shots Bar or catch the sunset at Southbridge Bar where you can chill out with friends, colleagues, or your date.
If you are a history buff, then you’re most definitely in luck! A mere stone’s throw away is the Asian Civilisations Museum where you can explore the history & cultures of Asia & their shaping of contemporary Singapore. The museum can be found inside a beautiful colonial British-style building and which is only a walking distance from Fort Canning Park (another one of Singapore’s most historic landmarks). A trip to the museum is definitely an ideal experience for those who have an eye for Asian antiquities and decorative art.
