From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Singapore River flowing through Singapore

The Singapore River is a river in Singapore. It flows from the Central Area of Singapore to the ocean. It is 11,000 metres (6.8 mi) long. Its mouth was used as a port. In the past, it was a very busy place because of the spice trade. It became very polluted and was cleaned up from 1977 to 1987.[1]
