We went to watch the light and sound show in the bay, which was not as good as anticipated (we saw the show in the gardens by the bay the night before which was spectacular by comparison) but the Lion fountain is well worth seeing and it's a very pleasant location to while away the evening. Few benches but lots... More

A must place when visiting Singapore, it is just beside the sea. From there, we can saw the Singapore Flyers and another landmark of Singapore. Cool air blow on the face, feel pretty nice.

This place is a must place you should go when you go to Singapore. The iconic Merlion which represent the country stand here. Take a picture here and then take a stroll around the fullerton, or you can take a walk from here to the esplanade. The perfect time to go here is around 3 p.m when the weather is... More

The Merlion is the symbol of Singapore and the statue / fountain at Merlion Park is both impressive and worth the visit. We made two visits to the park, one during the day and one at night. Both spectacular in different ways and there are many vantage points for ggreat photos. Glad to have visited this icon of Singapore.

For many years, thinking of Singapore brought up the image of Merlion in my head - that image was visible in every travel-related brochure, webpage and advertisement. So it made sense to go and see it. It's an impressive statue and has a great backdrop. The place stays very crowded through the day. If you're in a big group there,... More

This must be one of the most photographed spots in Singapore. It truly reflects the country's identity. A nice place for photo taking and an evening stroll. Beautiful views from just about every angle. But taking pictures could be quite a challenge here since the place is packed with visitors almost all day long, especially in the evening. An important... More

Should visit to get a feel of Singapore, small area 1-2 hours is enough, usually covered in all city tour, if you opt for any.

One of the attractions that can not be missed. The sculpture is only few meters high, but is located in a great place to photo Marina Bay and MBS as a background. We went on foot from MBS along the bay, about 20-30 minutes walking, fantastic photo opportunities. On the way back we had a boat trip across the river,... More

If you are in Singapore and have just one evening to explore, i suggest that you choose this place. This is the iconic place in where the mascot of Singapore , the Merlion is placed. The park is more of concrete walk ways and sitting areas lining the bay, and a few trees here and there. You can just walk... More

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighborhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighborhood 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.
