  • The vicinity of the statue (most likely the promenade facing Clark Quay) is supposedly where Raffles stepped foot on upon reaching this island. It doesn't look very obvious since there are no crowds and its colors blend with the tiles of the promenade. It's a good thing in a way that you won't be overwhelmed by other tourists if you are looking to take a snap. Look up how Raffles used to look before finding this statue, since there are multiple other statues in the area. The Parliament, Supreme Court, and the National Gallery are within minutes of walking distance.
  • Great spot to view #iLight fountain show
