What are Bumboats?
First used in the 1600s, Bumboats were the traditional method of delivering goods into the city. Today, Bumboats are used for passenger transportation and sightseeing cruises on the Singapore River.
What are some of the best bars in Clarke Quay?
For watering holes where music is the real highlight, there are places like Crazy Elephant and Cuba Libre. Crazy Elephant is an excellent spot for those who like live covers of rock and roll hits. Plus, there's a fun jam session that takes place every Sunday so if you're feeling brave, take the stage and show the audience what you've got. Cuba Libre Café & Bar, on the other hand, is a favourite amongst Latin music fans. Dance the night away with music by resident live bands Adrenalina and The Marisol, and of course, don't forget to try signature cocktails like the Caipirinha and the Mojito Grande.
