Singapore River

Singapore River

The Heart of the City Transformed

Once a historic working waterway, Singapore River has since been transformed into a popular waterfront destination known for its lively ambience and colourful charm.

Today, the waters of the Singapore River run through a mix of historic architecture and modern developments.

Enjoy waterfront dining at outdoor refreshment areas along the river. This was introduced to make dining there more comfortable, while letting the public continue to enjoy views of the Singapore River and stroll down the riverfront promenade.

We work with Singapore River One, a private sector-led partnership, to manage, maintain and improve the precinct. These efforts are directed by a Business-Improvement-District (BID) Business Plan, to make Singapore River a more welcoming and vibrant place for everyone!

BID is a sustainable way to improve and enhance the attractiveness of a precinct. Find out more about the pilot BID programme.
