The Singapore River not only has lots of photo opportunity, but it is rich in history also. If you walk along the river, do take time to read the plaques and look at the building structures (eg: Old Parliament House, Empress Place Building, The Fullerton, Cavenagh Bridge, etc). They reflect the era when Singapore was a British colony.
At the same time, you will see two similar statues of the man who founded this country; one by the side of the river, and the other not far away in front of Victoria Theatre.
If you are tired of sight-seeing, take a 10 minutes stroll along Supreme Court and City Hall, then make a left along Coleman Street. Continue walking further down you will come upon three prominent shopping complexes - The Adelphi, Peninsula Plaza and Funan Centre. These three buildings are known as the Golden Triangle of Singapore, where photography gear, high-end audio equipment and computers are sold. The shopping paradise for techies, photographers and music lovers. Get ready your credit cards as these are the places where the BBB virus thrives and most contagious.
Remember that strange accent I used in my earlier posts, it comes in handy now. Once you start to speak like that, you will sound like one of us. Use it to your advantage when bargaining with the salespersons. For a short period of time, forget about your American accent. If not, they will know you are not local and CHOP YOUR CARROT HEAD.
