    Gives you a good view of the water and the surrounding skyline. Good option for a stroll through the area to take in the sights of this beautiful city.

    The best time to visit for me was early on a weekday morning. Lower relative temps at that time plus overcast made the trek to Henderson Wave nicer.

    If you can take a grab car or taxi and get dropped off in the parking lot. From there it was a paved path up which was a much easier approach than the stairs near the bus stop.

    The wave itself was a combination of wood and metal with views from both sides. The undulating wave design gave the bridge its distinctive look though it’s built like most bridges. To get a better photo and view of the bridge it was best viewed from the middle of the staircase leading down to Henderson Road.

    It took me around 10 minutes to cross including stops to take photos as well as read the Discovery Walk signs that gave a quick history but also point out some of the more significant buildings from that vantage point.

    From here, I continued my walk to Fraser Point at the top of Mount Fraser Park and the MarangTrail to the Harbourfront MRT station.

    This is the oldest bridge in Singapore. It is well maintained and a convenient route to visit the sights on foot.

    Jubilee Bridge is a pedestrian bridge in Singapore that connects the Merlion Park to the Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort. The 220-meter-long bridge offers beautiful views of the city skyline and the Marina Bay waterfront, and is a popular attraction for both locals and tourists. It is easily accessible via public transportation and is open 24 hours a day.

    InterestIng historical bridge. In our case very helpful landmark for taxi drop off and pickups on late night travel and airport trip. Pleasant to walk with good views and can pop down on to riverwalk easily

    Beautiful views especially at night. Handy crossing for us. Good walking path and seemed like a lot of people were using it to miss routes that was a little more crowded. Traffic noise seemed much less to us and easy to stop and take in view and photos

    This is a historic old bridge in Singapore dating to 1929 and replacing the original built in 1862 and named after the Lord James Bruce Elgin, the Governor-General of India (1862–1863). The earlier bridge replaced a couple of timber bridges, the earlier built in 1822 on instructions of Raffles. It is an attractive box girder construction with cast iron lamps for illumination.

    Sunday 20th October and we were walking to the Singapore Flyer along the Singapore River and we came across this walkway.

    The Queen Elizabeth Walk located within the Esplanade Park and is between the historic Anderson and modern Jubilee Bridges.

    The walk commemorates the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953 .

    There are a number of landmarks and points of interest, including, the Tan Kim Seng Fountain, the Lim Bo Seng Memorial, the Makan Angin Statue and Rising Moon Sculpture and more. The Theatres by the Bay are a feature along the way.

    Another nice place to walk along in Singapore.

    A long road that links many dog rent areas. From new to old and local to tourist. So much to see along with shops, bars, hawkers, hotels and restaurants

    It was drizzling and the weather gloomy. But I enjoyed my stroll along the idyllic riverfront promenade of Robertson Quay. The little rain pattered on my umbrella like wonderful rhythm and the breeze was soothingly cool like a soft feather caressing my face.

    From a distance, I could hear the pulsating music streaming out from the riverside eateries. The Boomarang Bistro and Bar and the Publico Ristorante were crowded with customers who came here for their sumptuous lunches. I noticed the staff of one eatery were burning incense papers for the 7th month prayers.

    There were four bridges linking both sides of the riverside promenade at Robertson Quay - Jiak Kim Bridge, Robertson Bridge, Ord Bridge and Alkaff Bridge. Among the four, only Alkaff Bridge looks outstandingly colorful and vibrant despite on a gloomy day. It reminded me of the Filipino artist Pacita Abad who painted this bridge. The 900 litres of industrial strength paint her team used were donated by Nippon Paint. Unfortunately, the artist died few months later in Singapore after she had completed the painting of this bridge.

    Her most memorable words still linger in my ear `I see the world through colors. I felt like I am an ambassador of colors always projecting a positive mood for others to smile.' Despite her demise in 2004, this bridge still robustly stands here projecting her unfaded vibrancy of colors and for the world to smile. This is Singapore first art bridge, and the artist and her radiant colors will always be remembered by us.

    This riverside walk along Robertson Quay is therapeutic and the atmosphere peaceful and tranquil.

    Sunday 20th October and we took the Singapore River Tour which wound it's way along the River.

    We travelled under numerous bridges, including this one, as we visited the Quays and places of interest and attractions along the way.

    The Bridge, a beam-structure and was completed in 1889.

    It is located in Clarke Quay and spans over the Singapore River and links Clarke Quay to Swissôtel Merchant Court. It is used by pedestrians and cyclists to cross

    It is also known as Kampong Malacca Bridge. Was also known as the Green Bridge because of the colour it was painted.

    There is a popular story that says the bridge got its name because in the past, labourers and boat people gathered there to listen to to storytellers and to read. The reality is is was named in honour of William Henry Macleod Read, a merchant and politician.

    The Sheares bridge curves over Marina Bay - there are two portions, the first parallel to the Helix pedestrian bridge (overlooking Marina Bay Sands) and the second, crossing over Gardens by the Bay. The bridge used to be part of the East Coast Parkway highway, but the highway is now diverted and the bridge is part of Sheares Avenue now. It's a little bit of a scramble up to the bridge (you can access it either from the city side, or from Gardens by the Bay East), but once up there, spectacular views over Marina Bay. Approaching from Tanjung Rhu side, you get different views. Once on the bridge, you can't cross over the lanes of traffic (obviously!), so decide which side you want oogle before climbing. For walking directions, go to Wikiloc and google "mostlyharmless" for trail maps. Don't go when the sun is up: there is no shade, tons of concrete and you will likely vanish in a puff of superheated steam.

    It is simply a lovely walk along the Singapore River with its fourteen bridges across it.
    One of the bridges is called the Pulau Saigon Bridge beside the Warehouse Hotel. It has an interesting name and this new 43m-long bridge was constructed in 1997. It is 400m away from the original Pulau Saigon Bridge. The new Pulau Saigon Bridge links Saiboo Street to Havelock Road. There is a granite pedestrian walkway as well as a 60m-long pedestrian underpass with colourful murals.
    The original Pulau Saigon Bridge was built in 1890, and demolished in 1986 as it blocked the development of the Central Expressway.
    This bridge is named as Pulau Saigon Bridge as there was a small triangular island ( Pulau Saigon ) in the middle of the river long ago. In 1991, the island was merged with the river bank, forming the land on which River Place condominium stands today.

    Located just in front of The Fullerton Hotel as you approach it from Boat Quay, Cavenage Bridge is a good place to take in views of the surroundings.
