Marina Barrage, Singapore

(4.3/5 based on 500+ reviews on the web)
Go kayaking or take part in a dragon boat race at Marina Barrage, a functioning dam and lifestyle attraction. This dam was built across Marina Channel to form a reservoir in 2008 to keep out seawater, provide fresh water, and protect the region from floods. Aside from this function, it is also a center for outdoor entertainment and water activities, including boating and kayaking. The reservoir offers visitors a safe, steady body of water, as well as plenty of green space for picnics or kite flying.

  • If you can choose a clear sunny day (normally the mornings are best as it rains in the afternoons) you can get a marvellous view across Singapore with a view across the Business and Financial district...  more »
  • Governed the skyscrapers of Singapore flyer, Esplanade, cloud forest, Garden zubaisabeli, Bay sands, Shenton way one can take pictures. Facilities in the Gallery's current renovation. Garden zubaisabeli see a bus or taxi to come here and start walking back to Bayfront station while, look around it is recommended. Still, beyond the infrastructure it is Singapore's economic power?

  • It's great to come here on a sunny day. The view is amazing! This was the highlight of a whole day in the bay area for me  more »

  • Great place for a weekend picnic with loved ones, as well as to do kite-flying. Enjoy an unobstructed view of the MBS from here while enjoying a constant breeze. Place is usually rather packed on the weekends so try to be there earlier to reserve a good spot.
  • Great place for wedding shots, picnic or for just an idyllic stroll on a lazy Sunday. But do splash on the sunscreen because it could be scorching on a sunny day. Gardens by the bay is just nearby, so if time permits could walk there.
  • Amazing architectural design! It is a huge grass field mounted on an elevated curve platform. The place makes a good spot for picnic and offers a great view of the cityscape featuring Singapore's highlights such as the Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. Whereas on the opposite side facing to the sea, fishing ships and container ships cover the scenery.
  • Well known by locals to be a great place for a relaxing picnic and kite flying, this place has hosted a few kite flying competitions as well. It's not the easiest place to reach though. Can make use of free shuttle bus service and catch the regular SBSTransit bus service to reach here by public transport. It is possible to walk from here to Gardens by the Bay as well though there's one area that is diverted for construction.
  • This place is quiet during the weekdays and it is the perfect place to see the view of Singapore. People usually come here for picnics, doing outdoor activities or playing kites. You can do anything but as long as there is no fire, you could not light up a candle here, so you can't held any birthday surprise.
