Despite the excellent choice of architecture on view in Singapore, both historical and modern, it can be hard to appreciate the city’s many sights on foot during the day, due to the harsh tropical sun and high humidity. We advise walking the streets in the evenings when the light is fading and the air is cooler. As the sun sets, some of the city’s best landmarks can be seen at their finest, from the historical bridges across the Singapore River to the dramatic cityscape at Marina Bay.

The Esplanade

From the other side of the Singapore River, the Durian-shaped Esplanade, Theatres by the Bay is an impressive sight when its iconic roof is illuminated. The venue for classical concerts, theatre and international shows, The Esplanade is also a popular nightspot for drinks at the bars located along its al fresco terrace.

Marina Bay

If you walk to the opposite side of the water from the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, via Marina Barrage, a running track through gardens along the water’s edge offers excellent views of the city at nightfall

Helix Bridge

Connecting Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort to the floating platform, the pedestrian Helix Bridge has won awards for its unique design. With vantage points along the bridge overlooking Marina Bay, it’s a popular position for photographers to shoot the city lights.

National Museum

This beautifully preserved building hosts regular international exhibitions as well as permanent displays. In 2015, it will play a major part in Singapore’s 50th Anniversary celebrations.
