Financial District, Singapore
Red Dot Design Museum
The Red Dot Design Museum features an exhibition of award winning design ideas from more than 20 nations. The museum is located at Red Dot Traffic, a heritage building given a new lease on life with space transformation to become Singapore¹s creative hub. Its red façade is an iconic landmark in Singapore, contrary to grey skyscrapers in the central business district.
Lau Pa Sat
Built in 1894, Lau Pa Sat is the largest remaining Victorian filigree cast-iron structure in Southeast Asia. Located in the heart of Singapore's business district, it is a favourite meeting place of the locals. Once a market, it has been restored and converted into a food mall.
The Merlion statue is a favorite among photographers and visitors. Part-fish, part lion, the Merlion, situated at the mouth of the Singapore River is a fitting icon of Singapore since legend says that the Singa, or lion, which Indonesian Prince Sang Nila Utama first glimpsed was seen near this spot.
Change Alley Aerial Plaza
Originally a cheap, bustling, street level bazaar, Change Alley is now a sanitized aerial walkway housed on a covered footbridge atop of a mushroom-shaped tower.
