“Modern Singapore for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

Make sure you have your walking shoes on, and go from the old former seafront right around the bay to the gardens - make a day of it. Locals as well as tourists do the same, but the development is spacious enough not to feel crowded. There's a range of cultural centres including a theatre and museum along the bay, which is also home to the F1 each year; this being Singapore there's also a shopping mall and a hawker centre (with surprisingly genuine and good food) But really, just enjoy people-watching along the esplanade and the Helix Bridge

“A "must visit"”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

You must visit this place just to see how over-the-top a hotel/ shopping complex can be. This coupled with the casino makes the visit a must, but once seen you'll probably never return, even if you re-visit Singapore. Singapore isn't cheap & is also sterile, so once there visit the major sites & leave the rest to the Singaporeans.

“Great sightseeing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2013

Good to visit both in day and night. Light show at 8pm nightly worth seeing. Marina bay shops very expensive, both definitely worth a look around.

“Futuristic and impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Impressive redevelopment of what was once the shore. Layers of history, and now being turned into a fresh water bay. Loved the juxtaposition of the new, colonial and the old. Would have loved to see inside the durian opera hall. Clarke Quay is worth a visit. Must be a humming place at night but is full of history. Take a tour at the Selangor Pewter shop. Fascinating.
