Statue of Raffles, Singapore

(2.8/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
The founder of modern Singapore, Sir Stamford Raffles is timelessly encapsulated at Statue of Raffles. The statue sits in the spot that tradition says the Raffles first landed in the city, at Boat Quay. Originally unveiled in 1887, the original figure was replaced by an all-white polymarble edition in 1972. Sir Raffles stands, arms folded, gazing thoughtfully out over the sea. The statue has a quirky history itself, having been relocated twice: first for being too close to a nearby football pitch, and second for temporary protection during Japanese occupation. The original, bronze statue still exists just a short walk away. Make Statue of Raffles part of your personalized Singapore itinerary using our Singapore holiday planner.

  • Monument to an eminent statesman from British Empire Stamford Raffles statue, zalozhivshemu in the early 19th century, the port of Singapore. Evaluating the strategic location of the island, he managed to convince representative of the Sultanate of large reward for the transfer rights to this land to the British. The first bronze statue of Raffles appeared in Singapore in the late 19th century. Currently on the waterfront is a marble copy.

  • "Sir Stamford Raffles," monk stands in quiet location with beautiful green. Is enough if you look at tourism only once, admiring dignified appearance.

  • 萊夫士雕像在新加坡河這邊,最早到新加坡時還不知它在那,總會誤解是維多利亞劇院前面的那個,但這二個差別是一黑一白,如果你是沿著新加坡河這里走到克拉克碼頭的話,你肯定會看到這個白色的萊夫士雕像,基本上它的存在感就只有經過這樣而已,因為它只是一個雕像,所以途經可以到此拍個照. 這里並不會很多人來,來新加坡許多遊客比較不會留意到這里,不過在克拉克碼頭我總是會經過這里,白天夜晚我都來過,如果問在那的話,現在...  more »

  • Iconic spot of Singapore, where the founder of the country is being idolized. Nothing much around the area, but great to just see the statue next to the Singapore river.
  • A statue commemorating the site supposedly where Raffles first landed in Singapore. This really defined the city and its expansion into a global financial center. The statue is ok, but the buikdis around really steal the show.
  • 在维修……郁闷了
