With its collection of cutting-edge architecture and 24-7 adventures, Marina Bay is where Singapore predicts the future—and gets it mostly right.

Only 20 years ago, this gleaming skyline was a dull, overgrown patch of reclaimed land adjoining the mouth of the Singapore River. Ambitious planners transformed the landscape, creating an all-ages destination out of thin air.

Travelers can linger in Marina Bay from morning to night and not run out of things to do. Some of our suggested activities include: taking a short “flight” aboard the Singapore Flyer, climbing the Gardens by the Bay’s “supertrees,” catching a musical performance at the Esplanade, taking a nighttime bike tour, watching the 15-minute “Spectra” laser show against the Marina Bay Sands, and check out the bar scene at CHIJMES and the Sands’ Skypark, 57 stories up.
