Walk Singapore's Colonial District



Description:

The Colonial District forms the very heart of Singapore, its neo-Palladian buildings lining the banks of the Singapore River. The juxtaposition of the soaring skyscrapers of the central business district towering over the colonial buildings demonstrates how the city celebrates its colonial past, whilst embracing its fast-paced and energetic present. A walk through the area not only provides a glimpse into the city’s beginnings, but reveals some of the most picturesque perspectives of Singapore, and takes in many of the city’s most famous landmarks.
