Boat Quay is one of the major points of interest in Singapore with it’s fair share of bars and restaurants.  Most first time visitors to Singapore like to take an Instagram photo with the Merlion or Marina Bay Sands in the background and these sites are about a 10 minute walk away.

The metro is very convenient in Singapore and there are 2 metro stations within a short walking distance of the 5footway.inn, Raffle Place and Clarke Quay.  These make travel between the airport / bus station very easy.
