Summary
Timeline Singapore brings you the night scenes at Mohamed Sultan Road and the history of Boat Quay. "It has been said if you leave something alone, you often leave it open to a torrent of change. Back in the 70s and 80s, Mohamed Sultan was a swampy rat infested area, its only occupants were abandoned and run-down warehouses. Who would imagine that 20 years on, it would house a stretch of Singapore's Hip and happening Nightspots? Find out how one man's intuition led to a face lift of an entire row of sleepy dilapidated shophouses. And the curved shape of Boat Quay is said to resemble the belly of a carp. To Chinese businessman, that's a positive omen, heralding good fortune. From being a centre of maritime trade to an F and B hub today, the place has seen its fortunes rise and fall, and change with the tide. Relive vicariously the fortunes and tale of Boat Quay through the eyes of the people who have lived and worked there"--Channel NewsAsia.
