    This statue stands in tribute to Sir Stamford Raffles, the British statesman widely considered to be the founder of Singapore. The statue depicts Raffles standing upright and dressed as a gentleman of the 19th century. His arms are folded and he is looking over to his right, into the distance with a slight smile on his face. I admire the sculpture, but not the material it’s made out of which makes it look cheap. This is one of many statues and sculptures on the promenade of Boat Quay and it’s worthwhile taking a look at a man who made history for Singapore and the British Empire.

    The War Memorial Park is surrounded by iconic buildings such as Raffles Hotel, Raffles City, South Beach etc. It provides a green and calm respite from the busy city life. The walkways to the Civilian War Memorial are lined with the Belinjau trees as its conical shape complements the structure of the memorial.
    Another feature seen here are the remains of the Stamford Bridge.
    Stamford Canal is now a covered culvert lying parallel to Stamford Road. Long ago, water from this canal would overflow during high tide. Stamford Bridge was first permanent bridge constructed over Stamford Canal in 1956. Today the canal is covered and turned into a walkway and the bridges were demolished.
    The remains of Stamford Bridge are two structures which were used to mark its piers. These structures resemble small walls of chiselled stone with a height of about 1 metre. On each wall is a single black metal plate with the words:
    “1956 Stamford Bridge”.

    This is well worth finding in the Gardens By the Bay. A 7 ton beautifully balanced on an arm, this sleeping boy child seems to float above the grass. It is a spectacular depiction of the sculptor's child.

    Great place to hang out! Nice wind at times and the surrounding attractions make it really fun! there are benches all over if you get tired and want to sit, go back and there is a food street with plenty or eat and even a CAT CAFÉ! Go forwards and there's a funky Singapore-themed vending machine and ice cream vendors near Raffle Hotel! Happened across this cool area when I was out biking with my family.

    Friday 25th October and we visited Esplanade Park where this almost 60 foot high Memorial is located.

    The Memorial honours the heros who fought and died during World War I and World War II. Bronze plates bear the names of those who lost their lives.

    Always think it is most appropriate to visit Cenotaphs and Memorials, to honor the Fallen and to pay respects.

    We first saw this statue on Sunday 20th October when we took the Singapore River Cruise along the River and it's Quays

    We sailed past this delightful bronze statue, known as First Generation and it depicts naked children jumping in to the River, having fun or a wash.

    This statue is one of a series, along the riverfront, known as People of the River which are intended to help visitors understand the history of riverside life.

    We did see figures again when we walked along Boat Quay.

    It is located by Cavanagh Bridge and Anderson Bridge further along. The Fullerton Hotel is also nearby.

    Wednesday 23rd October and we visited the Gardens by the Bay where this clock is situated.

    According to the sign beside the clock measures 7 metres in diameter and is hands are guided by GPS precision.

    The Clock was a gift to the Gardens to celebrate Singapore's 50th anniversary in 2015.

    Worth having a look while enjoying the Gardens, would not specifically make a journey to the area to see this well maintained Clock.

    This sculpture is Singapore’s tallest sculpture & is located by raffles place. It’s beautiful and colourful, and definitely has you stopped to admire it, but it’s in a place full of heavy traffic & isn’t anything too special to go out of your way and see

    This sculpture is one of many in Boat Quay as a monument to the history of Singapore as a trading port. It depicts a scene during a typical day in the port with merchants conducting business and labourers shifting goods on a bullock cart. The great thing about this sculpture is the way the artists has created such a lively scene of the merchants engaged in discussions contrasting with the work of the labourers. Worth seeing if in the area.

    Walking through the Central Business District, we did not expect to find anything inspired by Salvador Dali, however, this Homage To Newton and the gravity theory is exactly that: unexpected.
    Interesting monument and very close to Cavenagh Bridge.

    I was interested to view the plaque and to read the significant inscriptions carved thereon. Pulchritudinous the monument may not be yet it still marks an important piece of Singaporean history.

    Fountain opened in 1882 to commemorate the philanthropy of Tan Kim Seng in providing funds for fresh water in Singapore.

    The fountain was originally near the Fullerton Hotel but was moved to its present location at a later date. No makers mark but looks like the work of Mcleland of Glasgow. Worth a look if your passing.
