I was advised to see the Helix Bridge at night when its lights are lit. The bridge was inspired by DNA structure, so the lights were meant to emphasize shapes and curves. I walked the bridge at night and during the day. Interestingly, I liked it better during the daytime. To me, festive lights were distracting from appreciating the genius... More

The walk across this bridge is not long at all, so don't worry, it's not a hike. Even at a stroll, you'll be across in less than 10 minutes. It's a nice, easy place to visit.

Quick and easy way to get from Esplanade to Marina Bay Sands / Gardens by the Bay. This helix design is very unique. From the bridge, you get a view of the major tourist spots - Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, Singpore Flyer, Science Museum to name a few.

Staying in Marina Bay

Neighbourhood Profile
Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars, and other attractions all geared towards pure entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo opportunity for visitors and locals alike. The ArtScience Museum always has a top-quality exhibition, and Gardens by the Bay is a fascinating manifestation of the government’s vision of Singapore as a “city in a garden”. Enticing Marina Bay is well worth a visit.
