“Amazing View of the city”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 December 2013

Beautiful View of the City and Marina Bay Sands..
You could walk on the bridge to the other side of the river and come back.

Best to club the visit with Gardens by the Bay.

There is a nice food court available, by the river, as you walk from marina barrage, past the gardens by the bay.. with many options - asian as well as western

To reach by public transport:
Bus 400 --- Frequency of 15-20 mins
Take Exit A from Marina Bay MRT Station. The bus stop is about 2 mins walk from the MRT Station.
Alight at the last bus stop

“Unexpectedly charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

On a Sunday afternoon you find people having fun, with kites and without kites, but with the shipping on one side, the city skyline on the other, and a big lawn, and walks, on which to pass the time in aimless happiness. A really good atmosphere. Parking and entrance free, and you can walk into the new gardens. Very good indeed.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 November 2013

We came across the Barrage after a long walk through Marina Bay Gardens. There is a curved path up to the top of the Barrage building and and on top, a lovely grassed area with a beautiful view of Singapore. It was about the only time we saw Singaporean families having picnics sitting on the grass! Kids and adults were flying kites and generally enjoying themselves. The view of the city at dusk was beautiful..well worth the visit. We didn't see the inside of the building , due to lack of time (unfortunately).

“A magnificent viewing point for Singapore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 November 2013

Marina Barrage is our favorite place for outing. A perfect place for family outings and picnics. Ideal for kite flying. Make sure you take your picnic basket, kites and your camera to click the magnanimous pictures of the Singapore skyline. Set just opposite to Marina Bay Sands,marina barrage gives an excellent view of the gardens by the bay as well. With water flowing to your right, gardens in front of you and the marina bay sands illuminating with its lights, MB takes you into a paradise. Just lie down and look at the sky counting the hundreds of kites soaring in the sky.
It also has a museum that give you an idea of the water purification system in Singapore.hence it's not just a picnic spot but an educational place as well.
