  • Breathtaking views of the bay, amazing at night and a must see from an architecture and design perspective. When illuminated at night the view is awesome. A well known landmark.
  • Aesthetic and unique. Creative architecture. The whole bridge based its concept around a DNA.
  • This bridge is inspired by the DNA structure. For those interested in design or architecture, you should read up about their inspiration behind this bridge. Anyway, this is a great bridge with a nice view of the Singapore river. Probably the best way to get to Marina Bay Sands or the Floating Platform.
  • The place is awesome. DNA-looking bridge. Amazing lights at night
  • This bridge 🌉 becomes more beautiful at night. Wait for its light to reflect on the waters below it which would add drama to your photo. Try crossing this bridge when you go to the Merlion.
