There is so much history associated with this site and how it changed Singapore. The monument was easy to locate, and a good 5 min stop point.

2019 celebrates the bicentenary year of the landing of Stamford Raffles in Singapore to establish a British trading post. Celebrations and the national flag of Singapore is flown over public and private buildings throughout the Country. Obviously the site in 1819 was not as clean...More

The site is marked by a stature of Sir Stamford Raffles. It is believed to be where he landed on the banks of the Singapore River. It is across the river from Boat Quay.

A good place to visit in the evening. Better to hide in the various shopping malls during the day. Lots of places to eat as well.

Visited timbre which is located just beside this monument. All these time, I did not realised how beautiful it is at night. Take a look at the picture and you will know what I mean.

Stamford Raffles stands with his back to the Singapore river supposedly surveying the simple fishing village that was here when he landed - one of a number of interesting historic sites in this area which collectively make it a worthwhile visit

There's nothing to see there at the moment - the statue is all covered up and the while area is a building/ refurbishment site. It's a nice walk along the river though.

There seems to be some conjecture as to whether Raffles landed at Singapore River or Rochor River. Perhaps expediency has resulted in this site being nominated as the Landing Site; will we ever know? Fairly nondescript without the replica statue that is erected there. Good...More

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
