    The world’s first curved double-helix bridge
    Its a pedestrian bridge that unites Marina Centre with Marina Bay area, the design and construction inspired by the geometric arrangement of DNA. There are four viewing pods extending over the water, the bridge is 280m in length and the world’s first curved double-helix bridge. Interesting during daylight but more spectacular at night with the lighting installation.

    Great way to explore the Marina Bay area and walk the unique double helix bridge
    Great pedestrian bridge that will offer wonderful view to the whole bay area, including some interesting structures like the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and the Arts & Sciences Museum. Suggest taking the walk during both day and night times. We cross the bridge and continued all the way to the Singapore Flyer. It is the world's first curved double helix bridge. Makes great picture taking!

    Better to go in the evening or early morning when temperatures are not too high!
    Great walk to be had from Merlin Park across Victoria bridge onto the esplanade and beyond. Crossing the Helix Bridge which was designed to represent the genome sequence and onto Marina Bay Sands. Prettily lit at night and great time for a walk.

Resembling a helix (hence the name), this curved bridge links Marina Bay (or more precisely, Marina South) and Marina Centre. It's very distinct design has made a popular location for walkers, joggers, and cyclists, especially on weekends. In the evenings, the bridge is lit to show off its unique shape. But I like it mainly for the very grand views of the entire Marina Bay area. And what is also useful is that there are pod-shaped viewing platforms that jut out from the bridge at regular intervals so that views are unobstructed by the spiral metal beams.

What do you get when you put Singaporean, British and Australian designers/architects together? A twisting, turning, curving, mind bending structure that is even more puzzling than a movie Matrix.

They must've stormed their brains out so in the end they took the design cue from god knows who's DNA while thinking, how can we make it more complicated to design and even more challenging for builders. But the result speaks volumes for itself. It has won many design awards and it compliments the Marina Bay area perfectly which is already overflowing with world class attractions.

During our morning jog in Singapore, my wife, son, and I visited the Helix Bridge and were amazed by its beauty and unique design. The bridge, which spans across the Marina Bay, features a helix-like structure that is both stunning and functional. It is a popular attraction for both tourists and locals, offering panoramic views of the city and its many landmarks. We were impressed by the bridge's unique lighting system, which created a beautiful visual display at night. We even had the opportunity to see it illuminated while having dinner at a nearby restaurant. Overall, the Helix Bridge is a must-visit destination for anyone traveling to Singapore. It is a great place to take a leisurely stroll or simply stop and admire the impressive design. We highly recommend it!

I've been crossing over this bridge many times recently during the lockdown as part of one of my standard walking routes around Marina Bay. Very nice views from here out over the city, and pleasing architecture. It's a little annoying if you're cycling though as you have to carry your bike down the stairs on the MBS side.

The Helix bridge is definitely worth a walk across. It takes you directly into the Marina market and provides great viewing of the Singapore skylight. Make sure that you notice the A,T,G and C’s on the bridge (representing the 4 proteins that make up our DNA) that light up at

The best time to visit the Helix Bridge would be night time where you will be able to see the skyline of our CBD area. The light of the Helix Bridge creates a romantic atmosphere for couples to take a stroll after their dinner. It is easily accessible from Marina Bay Sands and The Millennial Walk.

This is a foot bridge in the bay area with a helix type design. We hired cycles over the bridge. Those loving engineering excellence would like this bridge. The view from the bridge is very good. We used cycle as we visited during the day time and it was very hot.

This is indeed a fascinating bridge, brilliantly put together. I used to drink in the pub in Cambridge that Watson and Crick informally announced their discovery. I’ve walked over the bridge several times but yesterday saw it from underneath for the first time.

Well worth an admiring view from the underside - especially with dramatic sky above. It was quite photogenic. Easy reached on the broadwalk from Gardens by the Bay to the Art Science Museum.

Did the circuit of Marina Bay yesterday - great day out, great weather even if the sun did catch my face!

This bridge is worth walking across if you have the time...maybe when returning from the Gardens By The Bay or the Marina Bay Shopping Mall. Good views across the bay of Singapore's skyline at night. Look out for the humpback whale sculpture nearby.
