Singapore is among the worlds very few great cities blessed with an equally great, historic waterfront. The Fullerton Heritage Precinct, Singapores downtown collection of architectural masterpieces, stretches from Collyer Quay along Raffles Quay to Shenton Way, capturing the sense of a bygone era within an updated setting.

From celebrated hotels to top-rated restaurants, A New Chapter showcases the beauty and range of the Singapore waterfront.
