Owner description: Be captivated by the bright lights of the Singapore Flyer and the Central Business District skyline against the sky at sunset, reflected in the still waters of the Marina Barrage.

“Lovely Place if you drive”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2012

Hidden away at the edge of the city center, accessible only by vehicles, for MRT is a long long walk.

The complex act like a Dam to control water flow from Singapore River to the Singapore Sea. There is a Conserve Water interactive Museum for everyone, quite fun to learn how Singapore manage her water resources.

Take a walk on the Ramp that leads to the roof top which is covered with carpet grass, you will feel like you're in a field. Great view of Singapore City or the nearby Indonesian islands of Batam and Bintan.

“Reservoir in the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2012

I like the Barrage. No glitz, no hard sell. A reservoir right in the heart of a vibrant city, trapping a not insignificant portion of the rain that falls on the island. Here local people can wander around enjoying the views or maybe flying a kite.

Technology that you can touch and feel. This is what keeps Singapore ahead of so many other places. A big plan for the future that was executed with minimum fuss. Not the final solution to Singapore's water supply problems but an innovate and bold project that is certainly well worth a visit.

“Lovely view of Singapore Flyer, Marina Bay Sands”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2012

You get the best view of the central business district, including all the latest Singapore iconic buildings and structures from here.

Definitely worth a visit if you like landscape photography. You can also have a pinic of fly kites in the evening.
