The area
Neighbourhood: 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.
How to get there
  • Downtown • 9 min walk
  • Marina Bay • 10 min walk

We used the very cheap and so efficient and clean MRT system during our 2week holiday in Singapore. There were very few places we couldn’t get to using the MRT and trains are very frequent and immaculately clean.

Very efficient way to travel around Singapore and for two ‘older’ visitors easy to manoeuvre. Impressed with the cleanliness and the polite fellow passengers who were more than willing to give up their seats for us.

Definitely the most convenient of all. Although buses are very convenient too. But hey, you don't get drenched by rain!

The SMRT is very clean, efficient and also easy to navigate across Singapore. The cost for travel is also very reasonable too.

We use the MRT on a regular daily basis, super clean, inexpensive and efficient. An absolute maze of lines but once you work it out, it's fantastic. We buy a card at the airport, add about $30 and that does us for a week, you can also use it on the buses.

We used this a few times to get around Singapore. You have to wear a mask in the station, platforms etc which is enforced. The stations and trains are clean and there is hand sanitizer dotted around which is good. It is all air conditioned which is good. It is a reasonable price and you can get a card which gives you unlimited travel including buses which if you use it a lot would be good. The trains are automated which if you are in the front carriage you can see the tunnel which is good. The trains run at regular intervals

The MRT train system is a cheap and convenient way to get around Singapore.

TEL (stands for Thomson East Coast Line) is the latest MRT line which opened in November 2022. This is a driverless train line.

If you are new to Singapore, go to the first car, you can take a video of the train moving in the tunnel. Quite fun (note: best to do during off peak hours).
