Marina Bay has a dedicated gallery-infocenter where everyone can familiarize with the development and individual projects. There are quided tours and I must say they are quite interesting despite the fact that I already knew pretty much everything that was described there. For a regular visitor, however, who is not a SSC member or similar urban geek it may be a somewhat interesting experience

Inside the gallery there is a large interactive model presenting the entire Marina Bay project

Scale model of Marina Bay. So far only a relatively small part of the project is complete which includes Marina Bay Sands. The rest is a long-term vision which, among other things, includes lifting of the height limits which would allow buildings taller than the current tallest ones (three of them) at 280m

Gardens by the Bay (or Supertree Park) which wasn't open to public at the time. It is supposed to be a yet another new 'super-cool' attraction

Pedestrian waterfront near Marina Bay Sands. The area is huge offering all kinds of activities

One of many entrances to the shopping center. The entire area has free wi-fi internet for those who have nothing better to do and decide to sit by the tree and browse net

I had never tried kebab in Singapore so it seemed like a good opportunity (food court of the shopping center)

My kebab. I must admit it was rather disappointing
image hosted on flickr


The food court of Marina Bay Sands shopping center was about the only thing that disappointed me about the whole place. It is rather small in size, limited in choice and quite expensive compared to similar establishments elsewhere in Singapore (although still fairly good value for most part). It's as if they tried to make it feel 'luxury' with a little bit of premium. Only that the food is no different than elsewhere (where it is 1/2 the price) and offering less choice. It just doesn't quite make sense. I'd rather eat in Lau Pa Sat which is 5-10 minutes away which I did
