A more laid-back cousin to Boat Quay, Robertson Quay offers a more tranquil ambience for dining and entertainment by the Singapore River. Housing a string of hotels hugging the river against a background of the old go-downs of Singapore, Robertson Quay is the perfect locale for an evening out. Enjoy a walk and leisurely dinner at the many alfresco dining outlets, wine bars, arts houses and hotel cafes.
Robertson Quay used to be the site for merchants offices, warehouses and jetties, where they would facilitate the loading and unloading of goods. Children would often stand and wave from the old Kampong (village) houses along the banks. Many a time, they would take off their clothes and jump in for a cool afternoon swim.
Best by taxi. Alternatively take a river taxi from Boat Quay or Clarke Quay. You may also take Bus No. 123 from Orchard Road and alight here.
