Its worth going to see at least once, its not a park, concrete everywhere and not many places to sit and it will be very crowded

One of the best photo ops in singapore. Asked a bunch of singaporeans where can the merlion be found but they didnt seem to understand us. Finally, we asked an indian janitor and suprisingly he was the one who pointed where the statue was. 😉

Saw it in the daylight before but the view is even more magnificent at night. We were very lucky to be there at the right place at the right time because they were having the rehearsal of Singapore's national day.

This has got to be the most beautiful place in Singapore during sunset. We were told to go here in the evening by the hotel staff to witness the beautiful sunset and yes we enjoyed it. 3minutes walk to fullerton bay hotel which used to be the post office back then.

There's not much to do here but take a few pictures in front of the Merlion or against the backdrop of the Marina Bay Sands. It's usually mobbed by tourists, so it can be a bit challenging to get a picture without someone walking in front of the camera...

i suggested to go by night, you will find the relaxing area where you can walk around the bay with the good weather. Many people made a lovely picnic around there while somebody who love to exercise can make the jogging there too.

I guess for tourist visiting Singapore, you should visit this place for the sake of visiting. Nothing really impressive, just a merlion statue.

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.
