What
As its name would suggest, Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade is a 3.5-kilometre along-the-bay walkway that brings people across many attractions at Marina Centre, Collyer Quay and the Bayfront.

The promenade is designed as an environment-friendly recreation area. There are mist sprays to relieve guests from the blazing Singapore heat; breeze shelters with motion sensor fans to provide visitors with a cool stop from a tour walking around the bay.

Singapore’s Marina Bay is a real beauty of nature, adorned with the most glitzy skyscrapers and uniquely architectural buildings. The promenade is there to give locals and tourists an up-close view of the bay.

It also serves as a viewing area for various public events.

Why
The Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade is an excellent site for a number of fun and cost-free activities along the bay.

Children can frolic at the fountain. Lovers can take a romantic walk with a picture-perfect view. Health buffs can have outdoor yoga sessions at the lower boardwalk. And everyone can sit at the bayfront and enjoy sunset.

Free outdoor performances are also regularly held at the waterfront.

Highlights at the promenade
Wonder Full is considered as the largest light and water show in Southeast Asia. This free nightly spectacle features a delightful show of laser lights and water projections, accompanied by orchestra music. It is best viewed from the Event Plaza, which also holds concerts and other performances.

The Helix Bridge connects Marina Centre to Marina South that is home to Gardens By The Bay. This uniquely designed pedestrian bridge has a double helix that resembles the DNA. Four viewing platforms are strategically located along the bridge for sightseers to enjoy breathtaking views of Singapore skyline.

The ArtScience Museum is a lotus-designed building that forms part of Marina Bay Sands. Explore the museum’s 21 galleries and delve into the world of art and science that helped shape the human society of today.
