This must-see Singapore attraction is just a short walk from Raffles Place MRT Station, and can also be visited via this popular day-tour, which stops off at all of the other most popular attractions in Singapore.

  • Good tourist iconic spot in Singapore. It is really amazing to know the planning done by the authorities of Singapore by converting such a small place in iconic tourist destination with everything in a very planned manner

  • It's a nice visit. You can't really stay long because of the heat and the crowd. Find a place to take your pictures before being intentionally or unintentionally photobombed by other visitors. The waterfront is clean and scenic so take advantage of it.
