Singapore’s newest main attraction “The Marina Bay”

The Marina Bay is the most impressive district of Singapore. It is modern with views of the city centre but also new constructions like the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, the Gardens at the Bay, the Singapore Flyer (giant ferry wheel), the Formula One circuit and we should not forget the older statue of the Merlion.

A mythical sea animal protecting the port of Singapore is partially a lion and a fish. The Merlion is continuously spitting water and one of the most photographed statues of the city. The views from the pier are amazing.

The top of the Marina Bay Sands hotel is in the shape of a ship. It is called the Skypark and rests on top of the 55th floor of the hotel. It contains an observation deck, a bar, a restaurant and a 150 meter long swimming pool. On the ground level you see a piece of art looking like a giant lotus flower.

De Marina Bay is het meest indrukwekkende district van Singapore. Het is modern met zichten op het stadscentrum en nieuwe bouwwerken zoals het Marina Bay Sands Hotel, de Gardens by the Bay, de Singapore Flyer (reuzenrad), het Formule 1 circuit en we mogen het oudere standbeeld van de Merlion niet vergeten.

Een mythisch zeedier, half vis en leeuw, die de haven van Singapore beschermd. De Merlion spuwt voortdurend water en is één van de meest gefotografeerde beelden van de stad. De zichten van op de pier zijn fantastisch. 

Het dak van het Marina Bay Sands Hotel is in de vorm van een schip. Het zogenaamde Skypark rust op het 55ste verdiep van het hotel en omvat een observatiedek, een bar, een restaurant en een 150 meter lang zwembad. Op zeewaterpeil zie je een kunstgebouw in de vorm van een enorme lotusbloem.

  1. some VERY funky structures, there!

  2. Wow, I like that tern funky it does apply here well. What an extremely beautiful place this is. I am Facebook friends with a girl who lives, born and raised in Singapore and she needs to post more photos of her hometown! So lovely there. I like the shot of you both too, looks like you are enjoying yourselves!

  3. Je komt daar ogen te kort je valt van de ene verbazing in de andere.hier is weinig rust te vinden denk ik.

  4. verbazingwekkende foto's...

    wat een moderne architectuur


  5. Double wow!!! I had no idea that Singapore looks like this!! They seem more modern than we are!! I love those different colored stadium seats, and that boat on the buildings, it is stupendous!!! And of course I always love seeing the two of you! I am thinking Singapore may have no slums or ghettos like us??

  6. Heel bijzonder het sky park met die wolkenkrabbers Filip.
    Een moderne stad met mooie architectuur

  7. Wat een bijzondere architectuur!

  8. Very impressive indeed. I do like it plus the photo of you both with the building in the background.

  9. Amazing buildings. That hotel roof is something else. The flyer wasn't working when we were last there. We usually stop over in Singapore on the way to Europe. It sure has changed over the years but I feel its lost a bit of its character and has become a sterile city.

  10. Wow - I love the lines of that last photo - good eye, Filip! This city looks entirely modern - at least at the marina.

  11. It's especially beautiful at night.

  12. I hear that Ferris wheel is something else

  13. Yes , its a great place to be with lots of attractions there but then, it's expensive!

  14. Een mooie impressie hoor, het dak van dat hotel, is wel heel bijzonder.

  15. Gosh Singapore has changed so much since I was last there Filip, it was a long time ago. The Marina Bay looks amazing ..

  16. spectaculair de tuin boven op het dak. Groetjes Dietmut

  17. Everything is so big !
    Lovely images.
