Skywatch Friday - Singapore Skyline


Looking at Singapore skyline from Marina Boulevard. Usually we will look at the skyline from Esplanade or Marina Bay Sands Hotel so this time I take a reverse view of the skyline. The above photo where two tortoise like shells is the Esplanade (theatre).

The 3.5km waterfront promenade provides a continuous route linking the Marina Centre, Collyer Quay and Bayfront areas.

Taking a stroll from Marina Bay Sands towards Marina Boulevard via the Marina Waterfront. Best to walk in the evening or night where the weather is cooler.

‘Mist Walk’ – a 250-m long sculptural, tubular stainless steel structure that sprays clouds of mist to reduce ambient temperature and provide a cooling experience in the day. Note in the above photo, clouds of mist spraying out.

View of uncompleted office buildings at Marina Boulevard. This is the new financial district of Singapore. There's also condominium in here and they are really costly. Some of these buildings comes with energy-saving, high impact glass floor-to-ceiling windows and doors


Right in the middle of all the tall buildings in Marina Boulevard is a green square where activities are conducted. Spotted this group of teenagers having some promotion for their activities.



Short video of the Singapore skyline from Marina Boulevard.
