Statue that lifts the figure who is said to be the founder father of modern Singapore. The built statue captures a strong colonial relationship on Singapore's land and especially the Malay Archipelago in the colonial era.

From The Garden by the Bay to Statue of Raffles in a single day is just an adventure one should do, the Statue is right in the main city where everyone can see it but it looks nicer when it's rain section... you should visit

You cannot visit Singapore without a short stopover by the founder of Singapore, Raffles himself, well worth a few moments of your time here at the Statue of Raffles.

A fine statue to the person who had a vision to turn a fishing village into one of the worlds trade hubs. If only he could see how far this island has come.

The statue of Raffles along the banks of the Singapore River is a replica. A very good one and in a good spot to make a good photo, however the original statue is in front of the Victoria building behind the parliament and Asian buildings.

When you see the growth of the city with its high rise and shopping malls, not sure how Raffles would react or how many tourists would understand his significance. Whilst not an amazing structure, I did appreciate the significance and the site of its placement

This statue indicates where Raffles first landed in Sinagpore. It is located along the Singapore river and has great views of the city skyline. You can take a nice stroll along this stretch. Opposite is Boat Quay with many quaint restaurants.
