The park is generally quiet and relaxing on a weekday, it connects all the way to the Marina Bay Sands area and then to Shenton way ( Central Business District). The whole loop if you walk is about 3 plus km. At night it is really cooling and relaxing to take a stroll here. Sometimes at the Esplanade outdoor event... More

This is such a touristy spot. Iconic for Singapore, so a must see for every tourist. The Iconic Merlion is here, which is associated with Singapore. At night time when this area is lit up, its even more beautiful. Lovely to walk around in esp in good weather! 8 onwards the light and water show and laser lights from the... More

This park definitely gets less footfall than its esteemed neighbours on the Marina Bay. But that does not make it less attractive. It falls near the office area hence is not so visible. But great place to while away your time.

Located opposite the Padang and City Hall, this is one of the oldest heritage parks in Singapore. A stroll here will take you past historical landmarks like the Cenotaph and Lim Bo Seng Memorial.

Walk along the waterfront in the evening, relax with the cool breeze and quiet surroundings. It's especially romantic for couples. Enjoy the beautiful buildings all lit up with colorful lights. All the main attractions are nearby, including the Merlion, the MBS, the Helix Bridge and the downtown skyscrapers.

After the merlion on the way to explore marina bay you will pass there. Its a nice spot of senario like all that area. Very nice at evening time. Give you a look of it all from another corner. The small mall has great coffee shops and if you are there on Suterdays there is a outdoor play from the... More

Of the four sides to Marina Bay this is probably the least attractive. The financial centre is located around here and therefore you get less tourists and more office workers downing beers before going home. Still worth a stroll down so that you get a different perspective of the bay. Satay on the Street is not very far from here... 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.
