“Scary in the rain!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Interestingly-designed bridge across Marina Bay, affording excellent views across the Bay from the viewing platforms. A much more pleasant link from the Marina Bay Sands Complex and Art Science Museum to the Singapore Flyer than trudging along the traffic-filled Bayfront Avenue.

Like most of Singapore City, the pavements are of polished stone and are very slippery when wet - and I happened to cross the bridge in a torrential downpout and nearly ended up on my [--].

“Interesting Architecture”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2013

A very complexly constructed bridge near the Marina Bay Shoppes, from a design and engineering point of view this is amazing (to me). Not particularly practical in a city that rains as the shelter is minimal.

“Architectural Glamour”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

The helix bridge itself is a pedestrian bridge linking Marina Bay Sands to Marina Square/Singapore Flyer area. The whole DNA concept of the helix bridge has a high aesthetic appeal, eye-catching physical structure that will appeal to both tourists and locals alike. Despite its aesthetic appearance, it is not that functional in my opinion, as it has poor shelter to rain.

The helix bridge gives a picturesque view of the Marina skyline and it leverages on it by creating special platforms on the bridge dedicated specially for photographers. I thought that the best time to visit the helix bridge will be evening/night time when the sun is about to set and when the LED lights came on. I have to agree that it's really beautiful and stunning at night.

Verdict: Come only in the night time because the bridge serves no purpose in the day. The overall experience will be leverage only when the lights came on and as it is an open air structure, do remember to bring along an umbrella just in case it rains.

“Interesting.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Like so many other things in SG - an interesting combination of modern design and technology. This review is not letting me submit the above without saying "what I like and dislike ". It's a bridge. It's nice to look at and walk across. It doesn't go anywhere significant. Ok??

Truly magnificent, its artistic design combined with excellent workmanship had created this awesome beauty. The transformation of this area is greatly enhanced by this unique bridge. Worth the time to visit it.
