マリーナベイ・サンズ ガーデンズ・バイ・ザ・ベイ アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Singapore in late June for the first time in two years. In addition to famous tourist areas, I went around spots I have never been to before this time. While I have lived in Singapore for a year and half before, I find something new whenever I revisit Singapore. In this article, I will write about Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay as part of Day 4.

[Main Part]

Merlion

I left Esplanade. The rain stopped and I decided to go and see Merlion.Singapore fullerton hotel

Jubilee Bridge, which was built in 2015, has made the move between Esplanade  and Merlion Park easier.Singapore Jubilee Bridge

Merlion came into my sight gradually.Singapore Merlion Marina Bay Sands1

Although it was a weekday afternoon just after the rain, there were lots of tourists around Merlion.Singapore Merlion Marina Bay Sands2

As Merlion was not my main objective this time, I cut short a visit to Merlion Park. I watched it carefully two years ago, so if are interested in it, please check my past articles:

“Merlion Park: one of the must-visit places in Singapore”

“Merlion Park at night – Wonder Full at Marina Bay Sands etc.”

Marina Bay Sands

I will move from Merlion Part to Marina Bay Sands. There were several ways and I chose to simply walk to Marina Bay Sands in a clockwise direction.

I crossed Helix Bridge on the way.Singapore Helix Bridge1

It had been sunny when I visited it two years ago (see the related article). Unfortunately, however, it was cloudy this time.Singapore Helix Bridge2

I arrived at Marina Bay Sands.Singapore Marina Bay Sands1

Just like two years ago (see the related article), I will stroll around “The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands”, a large shopping mall.

As a new attraction, there was “Digital Light Canvas”.Singapore Marina Bay Sands Digital Light Canvas1

This art work was codeveloped with “teamLab”, a Japanese art collective, interdisciplinary group.Singapore Marina Bay Sands Digital Light Canvas2

Speaking of “teamLab”, it recently opened “MORI Building DIGITAL ART MUSEUM: EPSON teamLab Borderless” in Tokyo and I found all of their works were very artistic.Singapore Marina Bay Sands Digital Light Canvas3

This was “Sampan Rides”, which went through a canal in Marina Bay Sands.Singapore Marina Bay Sands Sampan Rides1

Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade

There was a promenade called “Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade” in the south of Marina Bay Sands, so I will walk around there.Singapore Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade1

This was my first visit to this area and I found it seemed to be a business district.Singapore Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade2

At the same time, there were several art works around here.Singapore Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade art1

It was a place of relief, wasn’t it?Singapore Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade art3

After a couple left the venue, I took a photo.Singapore Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade art4

Gardens by the Bay

I returned toward Marina Bay Sands and headed for Gardens by the Bay.""

“Supertree Grove” is the most famous attraction in Gardens by the Bay.Singapore Gardens by the Bay Supertree Grove1

While I spent more time on going around Gardens by the Bay including paid areas such as “Flower Dome” and “Cloud Forest” two years ago (see the related article), my main objective this time was located behind Gardens by the Bay, so I will move further.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay as part of Day 4.

In this article, I walked around major tourist spots in Singapore, such as Merlion, Marina Bay Sands and Gardens by the Bay and whenever I visit them, I find something new. In particular, “Digital Light Canvas”, a new attraction in Marina Bay Sands, showed me its cutting-edge technology and I found Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade, which I visited for the first time, impressive 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Marina Barrage as part of Day 4.
