Riverfront, Merchant Court, SingaporeWorkers perform cleaning and restoration work on the riverside steps at Merchant Court, Singapore. Singapore River was once a bustling port, full of warehouses served by lighters, known as bumboats, that transported cargo between the port and ocean going ships. Today the river has been transformed into a mecca for tourists and shoppers, with an amazing variety of restaurants and nightclubs. Many special events are held using riverfront facilities.This image is copyright and may not be used without specific authorization. Permission is explicitly denied for Pinterest.
