Vision of Marina Bay Singapore

The area of Marina Bay in downtown Singapore has in recent years become a busy shopping hub. The original vision to turn Marina Bay Singapore into a veritable playground of shopping malls and green spaces that look out onto the stunning Singapore skyline has come to fruition.

You can easily spend an entire day hanging out around Marina Bay Singapore, shopping, eating at one of the many upscale bistros, attending an outdoor festival or just enjoying the view from the spacious promenade.

Attractions at Marina Bay Singapore

There are so many things to do at Marina Bay, you really can’t get to them all in one day! Plan to check it out on several occasions, depending on what you’re in the mood for. The following is a condensed list of the best stuff Marina Bay has to offer, and hopefully it will help you decide exactly what you’re up for during your visit!

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

From classical ballet to Indonesian rock concerts, Theatres on the Bay at the Esplanade is one of Singapore’s premier theater venues. Grab tickets to the symphony or catch a laid-back matinee play.

Fountain of Wealth

You don’t want to miss seeing the biggest fountain in the world! That’s right, this 1600 square meter bronze fountain makes its home in Marina Bay.

Marina City Park

Take a walk through the serenity of Marina City Park at the south end of the Marina Bay district. This airy open space offers lovely views of the bay and has some wonderful fountains and playgrounds for the kiddies.

Sheares Bridges Run & Army Half Marathon
