Uniquely Singapore Views – Where to Capture the Best Side of Singapore

IMG

Singapore has no shortage of vantage points. From one of the world’s tallest Ferris wheels to the world’s highest craft brewery, it also has some of the most unique. With that here are my votes for the best and most unique Singapore views.

Marina Bay Sands

Even though the Marina Bay Sands was only erected a few years ago, you’d be hard pressed to see a skyline picture of Singapore without it. From on top the Marina Bay Sands you can find some of the most unique and best Singapore views. If you are lucky enough to be staying at the Marina Bay Sands you will have access to the amazing infinity pool and the best Singapore views that come with it.

Even if you’re not a hotel guest you can still enjoy these Singapore views from the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark. For a nominal fee  (~S$23) you can get access to the top floor and enjoy a cocktail along with the views.

Singapore Flyer

Located a short walk from the Marina Bay Sands you will find the Singapore Flyer – another spot offering uniquely Singapore views. Climb aboard this gigantic Ferris wheel for a 30 minutes visual tour of the city and surrounding shores.

Marina Walk

Not all of the best and most unique Singapore views come from above. A walk around the Singapore Marina offers spectacular views of the city skyline and the Marina Bay Sands light show. Then there is a Merlion (half lion-half mermaid) fountain. That’s a thing.

Marina Barrage Green Roof

Another walkable spot that offers some of the best Singapore views is the Marina Barrage Green Roof. Heading past Marina Bay Sands and the Gardens by the Bay  you will find the city’s marina reservoir dam and pump house. On top of the building is a green space like only Singapore can offer. From there you can take in views of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Singapore Flyer, and the Gardens by the Bay. Oh, and plenty of kites in daytime.

Level 33

Being a craft beer lover had me intrigued about the worlds highest craft brewery. The fact that it is located on the 33rd floor (my lucky number) had me sold. Although the beer is pricey (but again, all drinks in Singapore are) and the beer is nothing special, it does showcase spectacular Singapore views from its deck.

Fountain of Wealth

Last up in this uniquely Singapore views post is something a little different – The Fountain of Wealth. Although not much to look at from above, visitors can head below between certain hours (when the worlds largest fountain is off) and walk around it. This is said to bring good luck. For me it brought some of the most unique Singapore views and some of my favourite pictures of my time in the city. Good luck granted perhaps?
