Fodor's Review

This gracious steel bridge, the oldest surviving bridge across the Singapore River, is named after Major General Orfeur Cavenagh, governor of the Straits Settlements from 1859 to 1867. Built in 1868 with girders imported from Glasgow, Scotland, it was the main route across the river until 1909. Now a pedestrian bridge, you can get a spectacular view of the Fullerton Hotel. On the riverbank are whimsical sculptures of boys in half-dive over the water, which make for great pictures.
