The winds of change in Singapore have buffeted Marina Bay the hardest, but the results have been pretty amazing. From an overgrown parcel of reclaimed land flanking the Singapore River’s outlet into the sea, the area has been rapidly transformed into Singapore’s most modern business and pleasure district. The skyline, once flat and unremarkable, now boasts highlights like the Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer, and the “supertrees” of the new Gardens by the Bay.
So what’s in it for you? Plenty, actually – the area’s many new (and a fair bit of old) attractions will keep you occupied while you visit, with a wide selection of dining, entertainment, shopping, and culture, easily accessible by taxi, bus, and MRT.
Train riders armed with Singapore’s EZ-Link card can reach the Marina Bay and its environs through the following MRT stations: Raffles Place (NS26/EW14), City Hall (NS25/EW13) Marina Bay (NS27/CE2/TS20), Bayfront MRT Station (CE1/DT16), Promenade MRT Station (CC4/DT15), and Esplanade MRT Station (CC3).
