Marina Bay Sands – A Spectacular Experience

Here’s a guide to help you in planning your trip to Marina Bay Sands!

Singapore is undoubtedly the most finest & the cleanest city I have ever been to. It is a combination of both art & nature in the form of beautiful skyscrapers as well as parks & gardens. You will also find people of different ethnicities residing here making it a diverse international city.

Singapore is also easily accessible through the MRT (Mass Rapid Transit) train system which covers all the tourist attractions just beyond walking distance from the stations. You can also buy an EZ-Link Card at any MRT station, which you can re-fill with money to make your transportation more easier.

The Perfect Itinerary – Marina Bay Sands

When to visit

It’s summer all year round in Singapore, still I would recommend you to visit during the year end between October and December, it might rain in these months but its also comparatively cooler than the other months.

Major Attractions to Visit In Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands Skypark

Marina Bay Sands is the most amazing hotel in Singapore having spectacular overlooking panaromic views of the city. It has a huge boat shaped structure floating at the top, not literally floating. It’s highly recommended to visit during sunset time so you can see the transition of the city which lits up in the night. It is truly the prettiest view when the buildings are all lit up. It would be extremely worthwhile staying at this luxurious hotel surrounded by exceptionally spectacular views. The infinity pool at the top of this hotel is accessible to hotel guests only, giving us another reason to splurge at this hotel.

Merlion Park

The Merlion Park is the prominent landmark of Singapore. It’s free to visit and is surrounded by few restaurants, cafes & souvenir shops. The merlion statue has a fountain of water falling from it’s own mouth. Unfortunately when we visited this place, there was no fountain of water coming out at that time and some maintenance work was going on. Nevertheless we managed to get a few good clicks from this iconic place of Singapore cause capturing memories makes a place more memorable.

Gardens By the Bay

Gardens By the Bay is a beautifully designed park having 25 towering man-made Supertrees and two cooled conservatories called the Flower Dome and the Cloud Forest. The flower dome has flowers & plants from all over the world while the Cloud Forest is like a mini rainforest having a stunning waterfall and beautifully displayed plants. It’s amazing to see these man made conservatories preserving nature under a well maintained and organised architecture. It’s pretty cold inside these conservatories so make sure you carry something to keep you warm inside.

You can walk through the gardens which has lots of plant sculptures & trees. It’s an absolute bliss for all nature lovers. You can also ride a cart to go around if you want to avoid the heat during the daytime.

  1. I remember visiting all of these places when I had been to Singapore about 2015 and I was just as captivated by their beauty as I am today. I still remember we had a beautiful light show at Gardens By the Bay and the Sky Park hotel, it gives you the best view possible. Loved every bit of this! Hope you had a good time!
    If you would like it, check out my posts! 🙂

    1. True, I was mesmerised by the view of the beautiful skyline of Singapore. I had a great time there. Thank you for your comment. I will be checking your posts.

  2. Cool post! Singapore looks amazing! I’ve not been there, but I really want to. It’s such a bummer that the infinity pool is only accessible to the hotel guest, cuz it is absolutely awesome!

    1. Singapore was amazing indeed! I was also hoping to get into the infinity pool, but it was disappointing to know that it was only for the hotel guests. But I got the view of it from the top floor, it was already full with their guests. I would have rather liked to be in there if it was not filled up with so many people.

  3. Just hearing you say it is the cleanest made me want to visit. The art would definitely be a huge plus! I’d have to visit the Marine Bay Sands Skypark if only for the beautiful views. It looks gorgeous I love the architecture of some of those pieces.

  4. What a beautiful place, still on my bucket list. This post is very informative, perfect guide for someone who has never been there.

  5. Singapore is one of my favorite countries. I have been there more than five times already, and I never get tired of the place. The Garden by the Bay always takes my breath away. They are awesome, aren’t they?! You look wonderful in the photo too!

  6. this is a great post. ive been looking for some places to visit in Singapore and im glab I stumbled on your writings. 🙂

  7. This makes me miss Singapore even more. I lived there for years and even if it’s just a tiny red dot on the map, there are literally tons of things to see and do there – and as you put it, spectacular even! I’m pretty sure a lot of things have changed since as well and I can’t wait to go back. 🙂

  8. You know, Singapore was a regular stop for me when I lived in Bali and whenever I was asked about what Singapore was like I would also say just how clean it was. It like another world compared to other SEAsia countries. I used to love just wondering down Merlion park watching all the tourists in awe of Marina Bay Sands. This posts makes me wanna go back 🙂

  9. This looks like an absolutely fabulous place to be able to visit! I love all of your vibrant photos to share this city’s amazing beauty!!

  16. this is so well written post with all necessary those beautiful captures
    bookmarking this as this place is in bucketlist since long.

  17. Marina Bay Sands is I think one of “the” spots tourists want to see when they come to Singapore and I really like the view. I’m not sure though if I would be willing to stay at the hotel. It’s a bit too big for me. Great post!

  18. Enjoyed reading this and also looking at your photographs. I visited Singapore over 20 years ago and although it was fairly modern, it has changed a lot in those years. I guess I’ll just have to visit again 🙂

  19. Lovely read though I am not sure i would really spend money to go here. I would certainly look for either some historical things to see or nature and Singapore, unfortunately lacks in both. I would just take a 5 hour city tour from the airport during transit.

  20. I have never been to Singapore, but no doubt I would love to see those amazing views. Especially Gardens by the Bay, the most iconic feature, at least to me. Great information!

  21. Wow girl! You make Singapore look
    Romantic ❤️ I loved reading your journey and the tips. Hope to see it myself someday 😍

  22. The city is jam-packed with things to do. It’s slowly becoming more and more well known and visited. I have to make sure during my long Asia travel to keep these places in mind for Singapore.

  23. This was a really useful article. Singapore is definitely on our bucket list, and visiting Marina Bay Sands is something we really want to do, so these tips are great!
