Did Raffles really land here? Even if he did not, this spot turned first into an trade centre – an emporium of sort that the leading man envisioned. Today it is the financial centre of our little red dot, the fourth largest Forex trading centre in the world and one of the places where large amounts of assets under management (AUM) are concentrated.
Come here to see the Merlion, the bay area etc… 5 photos cannot do justice!
And indeed not. For not only is there the lion with a fish tail spouting water, there is the old post office, the historic river and the iconic piers that have now been turned into beautiful boutique hotels. If Raffles were to ever travel in time and see it now… we are sure he’d be proud.
