Marina Landmark
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.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.

  • This is a very calm clean open airspace that is within a short walking distance from Marina Bay Sands, the cloud forest, Gardens by the bay, a museum that was built to look like a flower, and the flower Dome. The entire area has a very calm soothing positive energy to it. This is the perfect place to come and relax... fall asleep on the grass, practice yoga, or walk around and look at all the different flowers and plants. There were several restrooms all over the area, and they were all clean. There is also a bus style tram that will take you from one end of the area two the other.
  • The rooftop level 2 is a beautiful place where we can see open sky without any high rise buildings. Children can play in grass. We can see ships docked in open sea. There is a restaurant below and a shop selling Kites. It's a popular place for people to fly Kites. There is a nice fountain at level 1 and toilets. Good for a family or team outing / picnic for afternoon and evening.
  • Beautiful barrage / Bridge that connects the East and main part of gardens by the bay. Great chill out place too for youths, rooftop is great for picnics and kite flying. See some kids here as well going for the newater tour for some education on water conservation in Singapore.
  • As always, marina barrage is a great place for fun family outdoor activities. Just take note, the viewing gallery that you can normally walk through inside is under Renovation. So, there is no air conditioned place to idle around except for the restaurant.
  • Came here at the recommendation of a friend. There are some resources teaching about conserving water/the environment, also a couple restaurants. There is also a rooftop terrace that it looks like people take their children to fly kites. Not much else to see, at least from my perspective.
