A great way to see the beautiful financial area is by jumping onto a harbour ferry. There are several different cruise options available, with many exploring the Marina Bay area and Singapore River banks. Visiting the colonial-rich heritage of the small but iconic Singapore River is highly recommended.Restaurants and Bars
There are hawker centres located even in the financial district of Singapore. These spots are generally cheaper than restaurants, and provide a great range of food in the CBD from chicken rice to prata and laksa. Lau Pa Sat is in the heart of the CBD and there’s lots of other options around.
Just a short distance from the heart of the business district lie Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Robertson Quay, which rest along the Singapore River. These spots contain the best dining and nightlife in the city of Singapore. Attica and Zouk are two of the most popular nightclubs found here.Shopping in the CBD
The Financial District also boasts some note-worthy shopping malls and complexes. The main place for shopping inside the district is The Arcade, which contains unique shops rather than well-established international brands. Just to the north of the district is City Hall MRT station, which is home to several important shopping malls, such as Peninsula Plaza and Raffles City.
