After a refreshing dip in the hotel’s infinity pool and a shower, we were ready to head out again. This evening we decided to stay local and eat at Clarke Quay, just over the road from our hotel. This district by the Singapore River has been transformed in recent years, with bars and restaurants along the waterfront making it a lively destination.
We had dinner in the indoor food court at Clarke Quay Central, the food tasted good, was cheap but it lacked the atmosphere of Gluttons Bay. We made up for this though by walking along the riverside, where there’s plenty of atmosphere to be soaked up. There is a reverse Bungee Jump on one side and it was fun watching people taking this ride. We found an ice cream shop with a lengthy queue, and lots of mouthwatering flavours to choose from, so we thought it must be good.
We selected salted caramel ice cream ones and took these to the water’s edge where we sat on the wall (like everyone else) watching the small tour boats with their twinkling lights pass by. One tip, try to eat the ice cream quickly, as in this heat it melts very fast, ours dripped and we had to mop up with some tissues.
