In many ways, the Singapore River is the birthplace of Singapore. It was along this very river that Sir Stamford Raffles first landed, and forever changed the destiny of this sleepy fishing village. Follow the river as it meanders through the heart of the city to discover some of Raffles’ legacies that have lasted for almost 200 years. Hear the stories of men and women who shared his vision and helped shape this city state into the first-world multi-cultural metropolis it is today. In the process, uncover the mystery behind some of the animal motifs guarding the entrances of Chinese merchant shops; see the impact of the Indian Chettiars on Singapore’s financial sector, and visit the only underground mosque right in the heart of the City!
