MICA Building Singapore

Walking around Clarke Quay

Singapore is one of the prettiest cities in the world.  It is clean, so clean and orderly.  I love it, and it’s so easy to get around.  The MRT (metro) runs through the city, public buses are easy to use, and even walking gets you to some really great spots.

Singapore Building

One of those spots is Clarke Quay, named after the second governor of the city.  We have gone there many times for the variety of restaurants for local dishes such as chili crab, sculptures on the sidewalks, and just to mingle with the people.  It’s beautiful, and you can spot this iconic building where it crosses the Singapore River.

This colorful building was once the Old Hill Street Police Station at it was constructed in 1934, and in 1998 the government named it a national monument.  There are 927 windows painted in the colors of the rainbow.  It is a striking example of how the Singaporeans take such great care with the aesthetics of their city.

    1. Rhonda, It was our second time there. I don’t know, I just love it. Let alone that we met up with some friends that we met and had a great dinner with them…maybe give it another try!

  1. Have been to Singapore three times, and just love it! The shopping and restaurants are great! It is so clean and pretty, and I agree, really easy to travel around. We went to the Singapore zoo and the Botanical garden, both were really nice! I especially enjoyed the orchid part of the botanical garden, so colorful. We also had dinner at the Clarke Quay, such a nice area in the evenings, with all the lights.
