It is here where the most innovative facilities and infrastructure such as the underground “common services tunnel” are built and where mega activities take place all year round. The website of the Redevelopment Authority - HERE - will even give you a Virtual Tour of the Bay!
From the same website for Marina Bay it goes on to say that the waterfront promenade creates a continuous route along the waterfront and links up the necklace of attractions at the Marina Centre, Collyer Quay and Bayfront areas. Visitors are able to interact, stroll in the mist, play in the fountain or simply soak in a panoramic view of the Bay from any spot on the promenade. The paved and landscaped promenade forms a key pedestrian link between the developments at Clifford Pier and the Marina Bay Sands. It also acts as a viewing platform for events in and around Marina Bay.
On the following map you will see the area that "Marina Bay" covers outlined in blue:
in the following two maps (from Google Maps), you will see the amazing difference in the past 5 years of this area...... the one on the left was an aerial map obviously taken in about 2006, well before the start of Marina Bay Sands!
If you have not walked around the bay for awhile, you are in for a nice surprise!
We both enjoy exploring this part of Singapore as there is much on offer for everyone. I have blogged about Marina Bay area quite a few times as seen below:
