How to get there

Take the Red (NS27) or Yellow (EW15) MRT line, wherever you are the nearest, and alight at the Marina Bay Station. Depending on the MRT line you chose, ask the SMRT Information Counter at the exit which way to the Marina Barrage bus stop. Take Bus 400 for a fee or the Marina Barrage Shuttle Service for free. If taking Bus 400, alight at the 4th bus stop.


At the look out, you can see most of Singapore's famous landmarks, the city skyline and the HDB. You will see the Marina Bay Sands, the Singapore Flyer, the Helix Bridge, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Science Museum.

The weather was not cooperating so please bear with the dark photos. We were not allowed to play in the little park because of the weather. It's dangerous for when lightning and thunder strikes. We have to wait for the weather to improve. I was lucky to see this up close. Singapore's water supply, the technology, they are so advance and yet are not shy in turning it into a tourist attraction. The structure of the lookout, with additional amenities, is an art itself. I just did not get a nice photo of it.
