Singapore River Walk
The Singapore River Walk takes you on a voyage through Singapore’s development: from a 14th century kingdom, to a colonial port, to its modern-day transformation into a buzzing lifestyle district. The detailed guide covers everything from the river’s bustling quays and bridges to the centres of commerce and community that have sprung up along its banks.
The Jubilee Walk was created in honour of Singapore’s Golden Jubilee in 2015, with special trail and monument markers lining the 8km route. The journey begins at Fort Canning and the National Museum, where traces of Singapore’s earliest history remain, following on to the colonial buildings and museums of the Civic District, and ending with the modernday engineering feats that are Gardens by the Bay and the Marina Barrage.
The guidebook includes historical tidbits, little-known facts, and helpful information such as the addresses and opening hours of the many sights along the way.
