Clarke Quay entertainment area in Singapore
Clarke Quay is one of several semi-historical areas in Singapore that has been turned into a sort of entertainment zone. What were once run-down waterfront warehouses have been gutted and turned into fancy restaurants and curio shops. It's a very popular place for dinner, but can be a little deserted in the daytime.
With the opening of the North-East SMRT line, Clarke Quay became a lot more acceissble, with its own subway stop just a short walk away from all the action. For a current round-up of shops and events, see the official Clarke Quay web site.
