Night splendour - the banks of the Singapore River showcase its landmark buildings and famous structures, eateries and night spots. The river is the central artery through the city-state’s Central Business District and historically significant areas.

Near the river mouth and facing Marina Bay, the iconic Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay (left) is one of Singapore’s more modern additions resembling the tropical ‘king of fruits’ - the durian.
 
The only suspension bridge and one of the oldest in Singapore, Cavenagh Bridge links modern day cultural district at the north bank to the commercial district in the south bank. In the backdrop is classic Fullerton Hotel.
 
Elgin Bridge has its origins as the only and first wooden footbridge crossing. It connected the Chinese community in the south bank to the Indian merchants on the north bank. Today it takes a concrete form.
