Marina
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.

  • 350 m to adjust the displacement between the Bay and the open sea at the Marina Bay became widely through land reclamation dam. Amazing, the Marina Bay reservoir in water scarce Singapore, all inside the dam are fresh water, and I'm. You can admire the skyline of Singapore Marina Bay from Raffles City from the top of the bridge.

  • 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.
