  • Pedestrian bridge of steel and glass is inimitable. It looks particularly impressive with evening lighting, when clearly visible letters denoting the nucleobase molecules of DNA, in the image and likeness of the bridge. It is believed that sleek, curved shape of the bridge, as is the custom in Singapore, is fully consistent with the principles of Feng Shui. With semicircular balconies overlook the Bay of Marina Bay.

  • If you are on foot and want to get from one side of the river to the other, e.g. from the Flyer to the Shoppes, then this bridge will stop you drowning. It will also inspire you by its design, stainle...  more »

  • Once upon a time, the entire area where Marina Bay Sands stood were just water. The entire area has been reclaimed and today features the undeniable iconic skyline for Singapore. Connecting Marina Centre on one side to the Marina Bay on the other is the unique and futuristically-themed Helix Bridge. You can now walk from the iconic Merlion and end your walk at Marina Bay Sands. Crossing the Helix Bridge, you’ll enjoy a beautiful view of Marina Bay, the Float@Marina Bay and Singapore’s downtown skyline. I much prefer the view at night when the bridge is lighted up together with the rest of the city.
  • This is one of the newest bridge which has become part of a sight to see when in Singapore. This bridge is for pedestrians only and spans the Marina Bay leading to Marina Bay Sands. These are 2 photos taken at one end of the bridge to give you a model of the the bridge and some information. Provides the much needed shelter for the walk yet the architecture don't cease to amaze me each time I'm on it. You should go below the bridge from the end starting from the floating platform to see some write up about this bridge that resembles DNA.
  • Beautiful peice of structure. Makes walking yo MBS much easier too. There are seating areas on the bridge too? Where you can admire Singapore's skyline.
  • A engineering and artistic marvel, great views of the bay. Well worth a visit. Opened in 2010.
  • Unique one! A nice place to enjoy the night view of Singapore, but it's quite crowded even on weekdays.
