Wider Image: Singapore - 50 Years Of Independence
Tourists pose for selfies and photos with the statue of a Merlion along Marina Bay near the skyline of the central business district in Singapore July 29, 2015. The Merlion statue originally sat in the mouth of the Singapore river but was relocated in 2002 because new developments in the area obscured the view of the statue. It was moved 120 meters away from its original site to its current position where it can be prominently visible from the waterfront. Singapore holds a Jubilee weekend from 7 to 10 August to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its independence. Fifty years ago, hundreds of small boats lined the Singapore river in the city centre. Today, most small boats are gone, except a handful of neon-lit tourist ferries. Maritime trade is still the backbone of the city-state but after decades of rapid growth Singapore, which at less than half the size of London is among the world’s most densely populated nations, is also a popular tourist destination and a thriving global financial hub.
