The Singapore River view

On the left of the river bank stood rows of old shophouses that were once the main offices and warehouses of importers and exporters of food and spices. This is Boat Quay. In front of the houses, directly next to the river, were tents built for dining under the hot tropical sun, or under the moonlight.

The shophouses were no longer used as traders' offices or residences but restaurants, pubs and other businesses.

See how clean the river is. No debris, no stench.
