If you are a photographer, then this should be the place to go as it gives a unique panoramic view of the central business district with the major tourist attractions in one image. Do be aware that this is a security sensitive area. I was told by the security personnel that if I want to video tape, permission is needed... More

None of the sightseeing list might feature this as a tourist hotspot but This deserves to be a must visit for its uniqueness and the way it's built. It's a getaway for many Singapore families to laze around and do a lunch party. You will see kids flying kites, grown ups enjoying their drinks and frisbee and fitness freaks running... More

There is absolutely nothing to do when you reach the Marina Bay Barrage because there is actually not much to do there except maybe the flower dome or the beautiful nature which you can see in reservoirs

Many people flock to this wonderful place over the weekends, it's a nice place to spend your evenings and enjoy the city views in sunset. People fly kites as its quite windy and couples have their photoshoots planned with the great city skyscrappers in the background. Great place to sit and relax in the buzzing city.

We wandered through the Gardens By the Bay, and we were pleasantly surprised to find so many young families enjoying this venue. Whether a picnic, or like many flying a kite. A bus is available from a MRT station, but it was a pleasant walk.

It has lots of space for kids to run around and they have a small area where kids play at the water playground. If you would like to picnic this is a good spot in the evening. And you can also fly kite as it it pretty windy

Breathtaking view of Marina Bay sands, Singapore flyer and other landmarks dotting the Singapore skyline. Best part is that it is free. I usually rent a bike from east coast park and bike my way to the barrage in about 25mins. I have also driven there on few occasions

Purchase your own kites before coming to this location. Come around 4-6pm because that's the best time for kite flying.

Though I am in Singapore for more than 4 years, I have never been to Marina Barrage, but I heard about it often from friends about the breath taking city skyline views. So I visited it along with my parents and found that the place is really very good and lived to its name and fame. The architecture is fantastic... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
