We took a walk starting from the outside of Marina Bay Sands, crossed the Helix Bridge, and ended at Merlion Park. Even though this was a Monday evening, you can see many people jogging and cycling.
We started just in front of Marina Bay Residences, one of the few condominiums in Singapore’s Central Business District that enjoys a direct view of Singapore’s iconic skyline. In the evening, the lights from the skyscrapers illuminate the entire Marina Bay.
We passed by the floating Apple store and Louis Vuitton boutique shop to see quite a number of shoppers. Restaurants and bars are fairly filled during the early evening. We then passed the huge water lily pond outside the Art Science Museum. On a weekend, this spot is often filled with people sitting down to rest and take photos with the water lilies.
We continued onto the Helix Bridge, where we witness more joggers and some with babies. There are extended balconies along the bridge for you to enjoy the Marina Bay view. We came to our National Day Parade ground where the multi-colored grandstand occupies.
After we passed the durian-shaped Esplanade, we can see the lights from the buildings more clearly as nightfall approaches. Our destination brings us to our Merlion Park, where the mythical Merlion proudly sits. Its fish body symbolises Singapore’s humble beginnings as a fishing village, while its lion head stands for “Singa”, which is a Sanskrit word for lion.
