Cavenagh Bridge is a must for those visiting the Singapore River of the Merlion Park area. It is the only suspension bridge and the third oldest bridge in Singapore, spanning the lower reaches of the Singapore River. Opened in 1870 to commemorate Singapore's new Crown Colony of the Straits Settlements status in 1867, it is the oldest bridge in Singapore... More

A wonderful place to take in the sights, and spend ten to twenty minutes waiting for a friend or do some people watching. Many food shops around the area and this is a popular sightseeing location. I've taken so many photos, hundreds, of this bridge and the surrounding areas, the people, events and activities. Even sitting on the bridge relaxing... More

You can walk to the bridge and cross Singapore river. The bridge is oldies structure but beautiful. Especially at nite when the lights are on. Take a nice picture in front... More

A bridge across Singapore river, that is so small you would have no idea it had any historical significance. It crosses the river between the Fullerton and the main administrative area.

This small but pretty pedestrian bridge is still looking good many years after its original construction date. It provides a convenient way to get from the Raffles Place side of the river across to the concert hall and the ACM, or to continue walking towards the Esplanade.

I passed through this bridge 4 times before I went on a walking tour and realized that it was an important landmark of the country! It is so unimposing, which is what makes it so fascinating. It's practical and useful, and yet reminds people of its glorious heritage. Looking at this one and comparing it to the bridges now, you... More

Good to visit in the evening when the lights are on. Small suspension bridge with Fullerton hotel on one side and the Asian Museum on the other side. Looks really nice in the night when they turn on the lights on the bridge and the surrounding area.
