I will visit Singapore next month. I am planning to stay near Marina Bay. Any tips on attractions around the apartments at Marina Bay?
0 Hi Jasper, Marina Bay is Singapore’s posh neighbourhood and has quite a number of scenic spots. The noteworthy ones are: Gardens by the Bay-The giant Supertrees at the gardens are a gateway to future. Artscience Museum- explore technology, art, and science at the lotus shaped museum. Merlion-the iconic lion head fish structure is an iconic symbol of the old Singapore. Singapore’s giant ferris wheel-the largest ferris wheel in all of Asia.
0 I think a few have been left out. The Marina Bay Sands Skypark stands tall at 200 metres and offers grand scenic vistas of the city. The Casino at the Marina Bay is a hot spot for tourists. Its 15000 hectares in area and has luxurious interiors. The Durian shaped Esplanade theatre is a magnificent piece of architecture by the Singapore River. Spectra light show is a riot of colors bursting out from the lasers thrown on to the water running along the Promenade.
0 There are two more tourist spots at Marina Bay. The Marina Bay Infinity Pool-the extravagant pool decorating sitting on top of the Marina Bay Hotel. Though you might not be able to take a dip in the pool, but a visit to the observation deck on top of the hotel is a good way to get sweeping views of the city and to enjoy the poolside views. Marina Bay Cruise Centre-almost the size of three football fields, the Marina Bay Cruise Centre is home to large ships and cruise liners that take you on a gallant journey of Singapore through its waterfronts. The marvellous architecture and the grand design of the centre deserves a full fledged visit. There are special cruise tours to Malaysia, Brunei, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam.
0 Has anyone been to the historical sights around the area? There are many historical monuments in and around the Bayfront Ave. For instance you will find the Civilian War Memorial. It looks gorgeous at night. The Singapore Art Museum is the best place for contemporary art connoisseurs. Singapore’s national monument, the City Hall can be found right in front of the Padang field in Downtown Core. It is now a National Gallery museum and a guided tour is just perfect to explore this Corinthian building. The Helix Bridge is another point of interest. Located in the Downtown Core area, it joins the Marina Centre to the Marina South. The spiralled cobweb design of the bridge lights up into a neonish tinge at night. It’s worth a visit.
