It is (as the name suggests) supposedly the place where Stamford Raffles landed in Singapore. There is a statute of Stamford Raffles on the bank of the Singapore river (opposite side of Boat Quay) to commemorated this. The sight feels bit underwhelming especially with the...More

When visiting Singapore a short visit to Raffles Landing Site is worth a few moments of your time. Close to some quite good restaurants and of course the Statue of Raffles you can incorporate a few interesting places all together.

The white statue of Raffles is located here to mark the site, but other than that there's not really too much to see. Decent views of the city. A healthy imagination is required in order to get an idea of what it must have been...More
