This bridge has the wonderful and distinctive construction. It is especially beautiful at night. In the middle of the bridge you can see Garden by the Bay and also Singapore Flyer. It is very near Singapore Flyer, so you can combine the trip to visit it.

Most modern built bridges go unnoticed, but not this one. It's design is taken from a 'double helix' strand of DNA, making it as unique as DNA itself. The structure looks good in both daylight and when illuminated at night, and it makes for an ideal photo opportunity with the city as a backdrop. We crossed it after visiting the... More

This bridge is an amazing piece of engineering and if you are in the Marina Bay Area, it is well worth walking across this structure but take your time. The views are fantastic and at night you will see the entire area lit up...a good photo opportunity. The helix design is worth studying and don't forget to look at the... More

Why build a boring bridge? Shape it like a left-handed helix and incorporate small details like the four bases of the DNA as cytosine, guanine, adenine and thymine.

- A unique bridge design. - Affords some different viewing perspectives into marina bay. - There is very little on the side opposite marina bay sands other than the Ferris wheel.

The Helix Bridge is a modern and uniquely designed pedestrian bridge that connects the Marina Bay Sands to the Marina Center. With its sturdy looking structure and futuristic appearance it is worth visiting for a snapshot. Best seen at night when it is colorfully illuminated, hence, creating a special visual effect.

This is a cool-looking bridge, pedestrians only. Very worth a walk across for the views--and the air-conditioned mall at the end!

The bridge looks quite mundane during the day but comes to life after dark. Combined with spectacular nightly views of Singapore, it's well worth a visit.
