Marina Bay is home to some of Singapore’s most iconic attractions.
Discover the best of horticultural, sustainability and architectural design at the award-winning Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay, next to the Marina Bay Sands.
The construction of Marina Bay Sands, a multi-billion-dollar boat-shaped resort, has created a stunning and iconic skyline. From the ground, the silhouette of the resort makes for amazing photos. From the top, the Sands SkyPark, perched 200m above the ground, offers unrivalled 360-degree views of the city. A ticket is required to visit the public Observation Deck, or you can enjoy a meal or drink in KU DÉ TA, a multi-sensory experience with incredible views, music, and a delicious menu. A popular time to visit is at sunset for cocktails and glistening panoramic views. In the evening, you can watch the spectacular Spectra light show illuminating the Bay.
On the opposite side of the Marina Bay Sands you’ll find the Merlion, the city’s official symbol. The 70-tonne, half-mermaid-half-lion that spouts water is one of the most well-known spots in Singapore and provides epic photo opportunities. The surrounding area is a lovely spot to stop for a relaxing picnic, or to come in the evening to watch the Spectra light show. An alternative grassy area to sit is the Marina Barrage.
The Singapore Flyer also provides magnificent views of the city. Asia’s largest observation wheel takes you 165m high and is located at Marina Bay. The 28 air-conditioned glass capsules take you on a 30-minute journey with views of the city’s landmarks, and on a clear day as far away as 45km to the airport, Sentosa and even parts of Malaysia and Indonesia.
Marina Bay is an excellent place for shopping with high-end brands located at The Shoppes. Bugis Street and Haji Lane have a selection of trendy, eclectic stores.
