Full description

Explore Singapore's most important landmarks on this river cruise on a bumboat. Learn about the city's spectacular mix of heritage and modern architecture while passing historic monuments, quays, and bridges.

Begin the Singapore river cruise where Sir Stamford Raffles first stepped foot onto Singapore, along the northern banks of the Singapore River.

Learn about the contrast between the rich and old-world architecture of the quays and the modern skyscrapers in the central business district. See shophouses along the river banks that have been beautifully restored, which now house chic dining and entertainment spots.

Discover the grand bridges of Singapore, such as the Cavenagh Bridge, Clemenceau Bridge, and Anderson Bridge. Learn about the pivotal role that the Singapore River has played in Singapore's progress by visiting the various historical landmarks: the Merlion, Raffles Landing Site, and Esplanade.

The Singapore river cruise is a good introduction to Singapore. It lasts about 40 minutes and recorded commentary provides the history of the old buildings on either side of the river. The best time to go on the cruise is at dusk, when the lights go on in Marina Bay Sands.

Trying to get a ticket from the ticket box was a nightmare -thank goodness for Get Your Guide. Woman in the ticket office seems to delight in being difficult. Then when I got the ticket she just had to make sarcastic comments-odd customer service. Trip along the river was interesting. Great way to see the buildings from another viewpoint

The river cruise is very good. Great views of Singapore. Excellent recorded commentary. The checkin process is difficult. No direction on where to go if you have a prepaid ticket. Only one queue for tickets and prepaid tickets when we visited. As you have an allocated time for your cruise you think you are going to miss your cruise because the ticket line although short moved very slowly. The reality was it’s a production line. Exchange your Prepaid voucher for a ticket and then get on the queue to wait to board a boat. The woman at the ticket booth was very uninterested in her job and the customers were an inconvenience to her day. If she could have given a little direction when asked instead of just staring at you and waiting for you to work it out yourself which held up the queue the whole experience would have been different. This procedure was repeated for every customer in the line that we saw and she spoke English well so language differences were not the problem.
