Singapore – Clarke Quay

Postcards-Singapore 003

One of my favorite places during our brief visit in Singapore was Clarke Quay, an historic area of interesting shops and restaurants  alongside the Singapore River.  We arrived via a bumboat cruise from close to the famous Merlion fountain, the symbol of Singapore.  The area was apparently fairly rundown and forgotten prior to a major conservation effort in the late 1970’s and 1980’s.  Nowadays, it is definitely a place to see and to be seen.  I hope I can return someday soon.
