7 Insta-worthy Spots At Marina Bay For Your Aesthetic Feed

Marina Bay, Singapore

Is Singapore one of the least exciting country in the world? Today we are going to change your misconception on that by showing you one of the must-go attractions in Singapore - Marina Bay! Scroll down and see our favourite instagrammable spots here.

Watching sunrise with Singa

Merlion Park

Merlion (half fish and half lion) which siginfies Singapore's humble history as fishing village and its original name as Singapura (Singa: Lion in Malay).

The Merlion standing tall at 8.6m sprouting water from its mouth remains as the most iconic landmark to see in Singapore. There is another cub statue situated in the park as well. There are total 5 official merlion statues in Singapore, two at Merlion Park, the rest are at Sentosa, Singapore Tourism Board HQ and Mt Faber. Across the bay you will see the magnificient Singapore Flyer Art Museum, and Marina Bay Hotel.

Come here early in the morning for the impressive sunrise skyline or night to witness the Merlion shines in great lights. Avoid coming here in late morning and afternoon because the tourist swarms are crazy.

Direction: Alight at Raffles Place Mrt and follow exit signage to UOB bank. Once you exit walk behind Fullerton Hotel, cross the road and you will see signage directing to the park.

Indulge yourself in Singapore Central Business District

As you continue walking further away from Merlion Park towards the left direction, you will pass by a few lookouts for the gleaming commercial skyscrappers. This business district is the core financial and commercial hub in Singapore. Get yourself indulged in the city view of one of the richest countries in the world.

One Of A Kind 'Bridge Experience'

Helix Bridge

Helix Bridge is a stunning piece of architecture linking Marina Bay with Marina Centre. Strolling under the spirals reminded us that Singapore is indeed a tech-savvy country. There are regular joggers and cyclists taking their route over here, plus the breeze together make the 'bridge experience' very energizing. We love watching and taking photos of the enthralling view from the circular viewing platforms along the way. Come by at night when all the lights are up and get ready to be fascinated! 

Where Art and Science Meets

Art Museum

Probably you would have already noticed Art Museum while you passing by Helix Bridge due to its distictive building reminiscent like flower lotus or a welcoming hand. There is a huge pool of lotus right outside the museum, with a straight row of palm trees lining up makes it a real insta-worthy spot!

There are many exhibitions on-going in the museum and our favourite is definitely The future world which is a permanent exhibition showing magical light installations.

Probably you will be hungry by now from all the walking. Grab a decent coffee and cronut from Da Paolo Gastronomia cafe located and enjoy with the unique lotus pool view!

Shop like crazy rich asians

Shoppes Mall

I am sure that you can never find a mall with canals (or resembles Venice) anywhere else in the world! Shoppes mall is right opposite of art museum or if you come by MRT, alight at Marina Bay. Besides being Singapore's largest luxury shopping mall, the mall's futuristic design has definitely up another level of instagram game. If you can't afford to shop like crazy rich asians, come here to admire the structure designs, still worth your trip! 


Marina Bay

 Yes, we are not exaggerrating. All these places are definitely not part of our plan. Beautiful flowers and surprises are everywhere. We were most impressed with the 'instagram tree' that we spotted when strolling below Helix Bridge. We thought we were lucky enough to find one at Upper Seletar Reservoir after the famous Punggol tree fell off, and now ONE MORE at marina!

The perfect picnic date

Marina Barrage

We ended our day stopping by at Marina Barrage which serves as water storage, flood control and recreational field in Singapore. From here, the view oversees almost all of the signature attractions in Singapore including Garden by the bay and Singapore Flyer. The broad wide space makes it a good location for kites flying and sunset watching. We absolutely enjoyed our picnic here and resting our feet from whole day of exploring. 

Directions: Flag a taxi from marina area (less than SGD10), or take bus 400 from Marina bus stop (Click here for directions to the bus stop)
