Singapore river cruise pictures

We took a river cruise from Clarke Quay till Marina bay. Cost was SG$ 12 (regular taxi or MRT are cheaper option, but we went for river cruise experience. Ours was a one way ticket. Round trip would cost SG$ 18. We went in Duck & Hippo boat. There’re few other operators as well. Duck & Hippo also have amphibian vehicles, which can go on road as well as water with ease. We didn’t try that though.
The Singapore river cruise lasted for about 20 minutes one way, from Clarke Quay till Marina bay, passing under about 6 bridges. An audio voice told us the significance of each bridge. Skycrappers by the riverside were reminding us of the concrete jungle and were fairly photogenic. Below are some decent pics clicked during our river cruise
