Travel along the Singapore coastline in a bumboat and enjoy the cooling breeze of the wind
Cruise along the Singapore coastline on an electronic bumboat and watch as the colourful houses and buildings pass by you. A bumboat is a small boat that is used to transport supplies to ships away from shore and that was what it was previously used for in Singapore but now it's mainly used as water taxis or for boat tours. Embark on a journey of discovery as you depart from Clarke Quay Jetty and learn about Singapore’s history while you enjoy the cooling breeze as you coast down the river.
Pass by some of Singapore’s famous landmarks such as the Merlion that has become an iconic representation of Singapore’s history and culture. You’ll get to enjoy the cooling breeze of the wind as you drift along the Singapore River. Watch the Singapore skyline and local passersby walking along the boardwalk while you drift past them. The Singapore cruise is sure to get you feeling relaxed as you feel the movement of the bumboat along the river. If you take the cruise at night you’ll get an amazing instagram-worthy view of Singapore’s skyline, so get your cameras and phones ready!
Learn more about Singapore’s rise from a small fishing village to the developed country it is now. Sail down the river that a hundred years ago was a busy trading port filled with bumboats and local Singaporeans known as coolies unloading their produce for trade. These old ports are now still bustling with people but is now full of tourists instead of traders. It is this trading that made Singapore the affluent country it is today. This cruise is a definite must try if you want to enjoy a relaxing cruise down the Singapore coastline and get a glimpse into the past of Singapore.
