“Yup, it's a bridge.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

This 100 year old bridge is just another bridge in the historic quarter of Singapore.
It is not particularly beautiful, not interesting.
A bridge, is a bridge, is a bridge, I guess... .

“Walked it but didn't know the history”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014 via mobile

Was there on our way back from Merlion but honestly I didnt know anything about it. Nothing special. Just a bridge. That's all.

“A feature of a great neighbourhood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 January 2014

Anderson Bridge, and neighbouring Cavenagh Bridge, are part of a historic time-line of bridges near the mouth of the Singapore River. Cavenagh Bridge was first, built almost 150 years ago. By the early 20th century it was overloaded, so Anderson Bridge was constructed, with Cavenagh Bridge reverting to pedestrian use. More recently, Anderson Bridge became overloaded, so Esplanade Bridge was constructed. The three bridges form a upriver-to-downriver sequence. They all approach the Fullerton Building, until not long ago Singapore's GPO. For reference are Wikipedia articles:

“Historic bridge in an attractive area for a stroll”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

This bridge is not an attraction in the conventional sense, unless you're interested in attractive looking historic bridges!

It's located near several Singapore attractions, and you could take it in on a walking tour or cruise under it on a Bumboat.

“Not really a conventional attraction but a few interesting tidbits about the bridge”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013

Not really a conventional attraction but a historical bridge you links the north and south side of the Singapore, just next to the Fullerton Hotel, as the river enters Marina Bay.

This bridge was supposedly built in 1910 and, according to what we learned at the National Museum, was where the Japanese displayed the heads of criminals in order to discourage dissidence during the occupation period of the 1940s. These days, the bridge forms part of the Singapore Grand Prix circuit.
