Clarke Quay

Shop, eat and be entertained by the riverside! Featuring five blocks of restored warehouses, Clarke Quay offers a quirky

alternative to mainstream attractions, with second-hand and antique shops and restaurants with an amazing array of F&B

options. In the evenings, dance clubs and pubs come alive with music from the 1960s to the present.

Or get your dose of adrenaline rush with the G-Max Reverse Bungy! Designed and developed in New Zealand eight

years ago, the G-Max is Singapores first extreme ride. It involves up to three people being seated in a specially designed

open air steel reinforced capsule, attached by US-approved bungy cords to two towers. The cords are tightened and

then released, catapulting the capsule up to 60m in the air at speeds of 200kph. The ride lasts for about 5 minutes.

Named after Sir Andrew Clarke, Singapore’s second governor, Clarke Quay had been the commercial centre, where an

unending stream of lighters would transport their goods upriver to the warehouses. Near the entrance to Clarke Quay on

River Valley Road is Whampoa’s Ice House which belonged to Hoo Ah Kay, an early immigrant from Whampoa, China

who imported ice from Boston in the mid-1800s before ice-making facilities were available in Singapore. Note how the

Chinese and European merchants brought their own architectural styles to the area.
