Nothing Ventured, Nothing Gained

Clarke Quay in Singapore

leave a comment »


I haven’t been down to Clarke Quay in years.  Usually I hang out at Boat Quay which is down the Singapore River from Clarke Quay.  On this occasion, I went to the nearby Central Mall at 1 Magazine Road on a shopping mission.  Glimpsing out the window, I saw that Clarke Quay had been completely renovated, with many restaurants, bars and other businesses.

In fact, Clarke Quay is an improvement on Boat Quay.  Besides being easier to navigate the wider sidewalks, the atmosphere doesn’t have that tightly packed feel that Boat Quay has.  It is much more relaxed and an easy place to while away an evening with your favorite drink.

If you haven’t been to Clark Quay before or not in years, I recommend you give it a try.  You won’t be disappointed.
