Boat Quay is an important and historical Quay in Singapore initially operated as the centre of Singapore's trade and business in the 19th century. Located near Singapore's River Mouth, Boat Quay was of cultural and economic importance to the people of the city. Earlier, there were many shops and warehouses built in this region. Today, the area remains bustling with a crowd and is popular for different reasons. Establishments which were originally shops and warehouses have been converted into bars, pubs and restaurants. People often visit the Boat Quay to de-stress after a busy day in the new central business district behind it.
Boat Quay has few of the city's best seafood restaurants across the river. The visitors have dozens of options to choose from. The most famous one is the Al Fresco, providing a welcoming change to Singapore's hot afternoons. Be it traditional local dishes or international cuisines, the wide range of restaurants covers everything. The Boat Quay is a perfect example of building something so commercial out of what was in ruins and remained deserted. In the 1980s, the area which is now Boat Quay went through drastic deprivation due to digitalization. It was entirely uninhabited until the Urban redevelopment authority planned otherwise. It is now flourishing more than ever and is a popular entertainment zone.
