This is a beautiful marina. It got busy when we went because it's close to Formula 1. We walked around and had dinner at one of he restaurants there. Loved the sunsets.

A good thing to visit by the river on something like the Duck tour to get the best view of the Merlion

As they said, it does not justify your stay in Singapore unless you visited The Merlion.. Me and my nephews enjoyed an hour here.. it was packed with a lot of people from different races taking their best pictures with the merlion and to add with the view is the Marina Bay sands.. A lot of restaurants to choose from... More

My fiancé and I were on the way back to the US from Thailand so we decided to have a look at the lion between the flights. Unfortunately the lion was in a shower(under construction. We had a dinner at the restaurant called something easy right next to the lion. We had time to check out the music fountain, per... More

This area was nicely presented and laid out. The boardwalks are nice and you can avoid steps to get down to see the Lion statue. It is bigger than I thought and was interesting if you could avoid all the selfie takers

The merlion was under repair when we were there, but the area is lovely to walk around anyway. There is the merlion cub right beside him, and other merlions around the city, so it didn't ruin the holiday. A bit nearby, on Cavanagh Bridge near the Fullerton Hotel, we found the 3 bronze cats I'd been wanting to see, so... More

Actually its a little bit hard to catch a private picture when you capture a selfie ehhe. There so many of people that come in, so be patient its gonna be the evidence when you are in Singapore :)

Sad we didint get a chance to take a picture, because it was for construction or something. The note says Merlion is taking a bath. So people to tend to take pictures in the small merlion fountain. There is also a good spot for taking picture over viewing the Marina Bay.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood 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.
