He appears to be standing there and is still watching to see that things are done properly and efficiently.

“A lonely icon of Singapore”
Reviewed July 18, 2012

Sir Stamford Raffles founded Singapore. The tribute to him, other than roads, institutions, buidlings, companies named after him, is this lonely statue of Sir Stamford Raffles along Singapore River.
At where he was took his first step on Singapore, this icon of Singapore stands a lonely and sad vigil over a modern age Singapore, with just a small plauge at the base of the statue explaining his claim to fame.
I wish more could be done for the founder of Singapore.

“A history of Singapore marred by eateries next to it!!”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

It's a piece of history of Singapore, but its beauty is marred by the late evening eateries that layout tables very close to its base.

“Well its just a statue”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

But Raffles did create something that has outlasted him, and his vision and cosmopolitan outlook for the City state has much to say to modern Singaporeans today. Nice focal point for a wander around the civic district on the way to the Asian Civilsations Museum

“It's a statue.”
Reviewed May 2, 2012

It's a statue of Raffles. It's really nothing to write home about.
