This is a large field right in the city centre and in front of some of the iconic buildings in Singapore such as the National Gallery. This is also where National Parades (9 Aug) were held. From here, one can walk to Esplanade Park, Suntec City, etc.

The Padang was a parade ground - it stood in from of City Hall and the Supreme Court - now the two buildings are combined to form the National Gallery of Singapore. At the edge towards the Singapore River stands the Singapore Cricket Club - an institution set up during the British days and still running strong. At the centre... More

Getting there by accident since I read that Singapore National Day Parade was held there. This is an open field with view to Marina Bay. It is a good place for some outdoor activities and resting. You can pay a short visit to it, then continue with nearby National Gallery and Parliament House.

If you know Singapore's weather, then there's no reason to be here unless there're events going on. It's just an open field with nothing.

What an attractive sight seeing spot. If you are in Singapore, you cannot miss it. When you are out side, take photographs such that you are holding the boat shaped structure on your palm. When you are there inside, move around, take photographs and enjoy the moving crowd! We loved the place very much.

This was where the GP after concerts were held. Convenient to Esplanade MRT. Contains monuments to the dead of both world wars including one to the Indian National Army of Bose.

We went to see the 2014 Formula 1 night race and bought tickets for the Saturday qualifying as it is our only free schedule during that time. We had the Zone 4 walkabout which was already good since you have good views of the cars. There were platforms provided on the area wherein you can get a good view of... 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.
