I think everybody who come to Singapore always go to this place to take picture of it. You also can see MBS and take picture as well. Overall you can have your morning walk around this area and it was nice surroundings

We passed the Merlin on the way home to our hotel via the marina bay. Lovely fountain in a very clean area.

I guess this is a must see attraction for tourist to take the obligatory Merlion spouting water into your mouth. There is no shade and the place is full of tourist taking selfies. Very crowded, so expected unobstructed photos without a lot of patience.

No Singapore tour is complete without visiting it. Nice photography location near the Singapore River. From here one can take the ride of River also costing $35 per person. It is during site seeing tour. Again your travel agent will not include the river safari...More

Beautiful and pretty place which also shows the heritage of Singapore with her famous Merlion. It has F&B outlets near its vicinity too in case one is hungry.

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
