Riverside Point Is Bringing The Joy of Feasting To The Next Level With All Their Amazing Giveaways!

The Singapore River was an important feature of Singapore’s growing port back when we were still in our developing stages.

Fast forward to a few decades later, and the River has now evolved into the urban city’s hotspot.

With thumping music and diners spilling onto the banks of the Singapore River, it’s no surprise Riverside Point has become a mainstay along the Singapore River.
