Top ways to experience Singapore Mass Rapid Transit (SMRT)
The area
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Downtown • 9 min walk

Great access to Fort Canning Hill from Dhoby Ghaut MRT station
May 2021
Dhoby Ghaut MRT station, the five-level underground station, is the largest station on the network serving the North South line, North East line and the Circle line.

Before the construction of this station, this site was occupied by Amber Mansions, located along the curve between Orchard Road and Penang Road. It was built in the 1920s and was owned by Joseph Aaron Elias, a prominent Jewish businessman.

Amber Mansions, designed by architecture firm Swan & Maclaren, was an elite shopping centre. The building took on the family’s clan name Amber as well as Amber Road in the East Coast area.

The station name, Dhoby Ghaut, reflects the area's heritage as a traditional Indian open air laundry as the former Bras Basah River (now Stamford Canal) flowed through this area. The part of the exposed canal can be seen behind MacDonald House.

There are many landmarks, such as the Istana, within walking distance.
Now after taking the exit B and crossing Penang Road, there is a very convenient 24 h linkway through the Citadines Connect City Centre building leading to Fort Canning Hill. It is newly opened.

The staffs were ordering us something. We could not understand what they were saying. We eventually found out their instructions through an expat. Really? You can shout at paying passengers?

Great way to travel

Singapore MRT is a fantastic way to get around. Very quiet outside rush hour and really cost effective. Pre charged travel card makes paying for travel so easy. Really cheap too. Can combine with buses with guidance from Googlemaps making for a simple and seamless journey

Nice, efficient and clean
Mar 2021
Quite a remarkable public transport system in Singapore. Despite some small incidents or delays (where else are there not any of these!), the system takes you almost anywhere in the City-State.

Train arrived slower than promised
Oct 2020
I asked their staff how long it would take for trains to arrive. They told me a maximum of 7 to 8 minutes. I believed them and then tried taking a train on the Thomson east coast Line and the tv screen literally said that their next train arrives in 15 minutes. Like what the hell? If you can’t deliver what you promise, then don’t promise it at all.
