Makansutra Glutton Bay to Marina Bay light show

Thinking of taking our young children for an early meal to Makansutra and then watching the Marina Bay light show. Not being familiar with the area, how far is it to walk from Makansutra to a spot for light show viewing? Where is the best vantage point? Thank you.

Hi axemarn,

You may want to read a recent thread on the same subject.

Gluttons Bay is not that far from the Waterfront Promenade and you get there via the Helix Bridge. Probably about 15 minutes, though your youngest (3yo??) may slow you down. Or do you have a stroller?

Cheers!

Hello,

Its a nice 15-20 minute stroll from Gluttons Bay along The Esplanade, across Helix bridge to the Event Plaza on the waters edge, right in front of Marina Bay Sands. Its so pretty, as Helix Bridge is all lit up in the evenings, and there are people sitting on the seats and steps of the Esplanade in front of Esplanade Theatres by the Bay waiting for the Laser Light Show. Lots of little boats cruising around the harbour with coloured lights on them. Your young children will be delighted at the sights and sounds.

Enjoy the experience.

It is about 20mins walk along the Promenade and across the Helix Bridge to the MBS area and the offical place to watch.

You get a reasonable view from very close to Gluttons Bay - walk out of either end of the centre. Either go towards the waterfront and stand there looking across the bay, or back to the steps out of Marina Square. However while reasonable views are to be had at those two locations, you will miss out on some parts ofthe show compared to being in the official viewing area. I thought it was spectacular enough just watching across the water, myself, and from the people gathered I was not alone.
