Remembering Singapore's Old Waterfront


Towering with skyscrapers, Singapore’s waterfront gleams with modernity. As the country has progressed over the years, its waterfront too has been transformed.

Visit three landmarks that once graced the island’s old waterfront and testify to her growth from colony to nation: a beautiful colonial-era cast-iron market, her first polytechnic, and the building that was a gift to celebrate her newfound independence.

Journey in the shadow of Singapore’s shoreline and trace the footsteps of her development with Remembering Singapore’s Old Waterfront!

Buildings covered: Former Telok Ayer Market (now Lau Pa Sat), Former Singapore Polytechnic Building, Former Singapore Conference Hall and Trade Union House (now Singapore Conference Hall)

Starting point: Stone sculpture at NTUC Centre (One Marina Boulevard)
