Just outside the central shopping district, yet just as exciting and hip, Marina Bay is particularly known for its views of the bay, an affable atmosphere and the iconic Raffles Hotel and Esplanade.
History – Lying in the southern part of Singapore is an artificial bay formed by reclaimed land. Marina Bay consists of the Marina and Marina South regions which were once upon a time part of the open seas. Now the mouth of Singapore River is at the bay instead of adjoined immediately to the sea.
Today – Architectural achievements like the gigantic durian-like construction Esplanade proudly sits near the mouth of the Singapore River, no sign of its watery past showing in the unwavering magnificence. The largest shopping centre in the whole of Singapore is also placed on this one time no land area. Suntec City has 888, 000 square feet of retail space and even holds a clubhouse for the NUSS members.
Highlights – 2 major highlights in Marina is our Marina Sands (Integrated Resort & Casino) and Gardens by the Bay.
