新加坡河Singapore River

小河賺大錢!
Small River earns Big Money!

  新加坡河(Singapore River)是一條小河,但每一年因為遊河船為該島國賺了不少外滙。
  過去幾年,因為班機銜接問題,有兩次機會在樟宜機場(Chanyi Airport)為了打發時間而參加兩次遊新加坡河之遊,完全免費的。
  不過,由於都是自國外回來,長途跋涉下,在新加坡旅遊巴士上都是打瞌睡,回到機場時都要導遊千呼萬喚才醒過來,很不好意思!倒是遊新加坡小河為要按快門才比較清醒一點。
  來來來!上船啦!

  新加坡河自河口開始她拥有3個碼頭(Quay),11座橋樑(Bridges)及一些富有紀念性的地標如萊彿士登陸地點(Raffles Landing Point),濱江公園(Esplanade)及魚身獅像(Merlion Park)公園等。雖然是小河,但保持的很乾淨,整天有垃圾船在清理垃圾,沿途可以飽覽新加坡新舊建築物等風光,然後在河口的出海處轉了一圈,把新加坡重點景色都看了!
  新加坡河大概才六公里(KM),但每一年卻賺取外滙可能超過六個位數新幣吧!
  新加坡是什麼資源都沒有的小島,卻能讓外滙如河水,滾滾而來!
  明天讓我們來巡禮另一條本地小河吧!

The Singapore River is a small river in terms of physical attributes, but of extreme historical importance to the country of Singapore, the political entity which shares its name.

The Singapore River flows from the Central Area, which lies in the Central Region in the southern part of Singapore before emptying into the ocean. As the Central Area is treated as a central business district, nearly all land surrounding it is commercial.

The Singapore River only 6km but every year earns more than 6 digit currency for the country.
