Disembark at EW14/NS26 Raffles Place Station.
For the fans of modern tall buildings like yours truly, this is the ultimate place to see them all; up, close and personal. Right outside the MRT station is a small green area where one can sit back, relax and enjoy the view. For me, Raffles Place reminds me a lot of similar view that could be enjoyed at either Central Park or Battery Park in New York City.
Having enough of the characterless buildings? A short walk from Raffles Place will bring you to the historic Singapore River. To the left is the famous Boat Quay, which during the sweltering afternoon sun, I did not intend to venture further. To the right, I ventured along the river path towards the imposing Fullerton Hotel. On its way lies a series of modern bronze sculpture themed "People of the River", a life-sized display of the early inhabitants of the historic river that meanders through it.
One could also venture across the many colonial-inspired steel bridges across the river, such as Cavenagh Bridge and Anderson Bridge, which will bring you into the Civic District of the city.
A great place for an evening stroll.
