Shopping in Marina Bay
One piece of the expansive Marina Bay Sands complex, The Shoppes is known as one of the top shopping destinations in Singapore. Not only does this contemporary mall attract shoppers from across the globe with its excellent range of retail brands, but it also draws people in with its stunning and creative architecture. From the huge glass windows to the gondola-style central water feature, there is plenty to experience within the shopping centre without stepping foot into a store. As the complex also includes the casino and observation deck, along with a huge range of restaurants and bars, visitors to the complex will never be left with nothing to do.
Slightly older and comparatively affordable beside The Shoppes, Marina Square is an excellent option for more regular shoppers. Containing a cinema and a bowling alley, there is far more on offer here than just shopping – however, as one of the best shopping centres in Marina Bay, it certainly pleases the shopping enthusiast too. One of the centre’s best features is its fourth-floor food court, which offers tasty and affordable meals with a spectacular view of Marina Bay.
This shopping and arts complex is one of the most futuristic shopping areas near Marina Bay, and offers a pleasant change from the busy atmosphere within The Shoppes and Marina Square. With more of an arts and crafts specialisation, visitors to the Esplanade Mall will find oil and perfume retailers, musical supplies and homewares in the mall, which is conveniently located beside Esplanade MRT Station.
