Next Stop, Sir Stamford Raffles

This is the very cool Statue of Sir Stamford Raffles. xD It is located along the stretch of the Singapore river, just beside the old Parliament House and the Asian Civilisation Museum.

The statue of sir stamford raffles at singapore river is where people believed that he first set foot onto singapore . Sir stamford raffles is one of the most iconic person who was essential in turning singapore into how it is now . He was an employee of the British East India Company and he ventured towards Asia in search for a point along a major trading route . The singapore used to have a shore bank and that is where he supposedly landed.
