Clarke Quay: Singapore’s rainbow ‘village’

Singapore may be a tiny and, to some, an unassuming country but that doesn’t mean there aren’t plenty of beautiful nooks and crannies to explore and things to do. One of those places is Clarke Quay.

If possible, I’ll always do both! (I’m looking at you, glorious Taipei and Hong … More Kuala Lumpur: Sky-high views from ‘Marini’s on 57’ bar
