Singapore is a city filled with outstanding architecture ranging from old colonial to modern and has influences from many different parts of the world. There is so much to capture when visiting the city. A fitting way to portray the beauty of its skyline is through a series of panoramas.
Marina Bay Sands Hotel
The Marina Bay Sands Hotel is prominently located and is visible from many vantage points around the city. It is situated on the west side of Marina Bay and has become a symbol of the architectural creativity, since its opening in 2010. To the left, the Art Science Museum, with flower shaped design, adds to the artistry of the scene.
National Gallery Singapore
The National Gallery was opened in late 2015. It houses world’s largest public display of modern Southeast Asian art. The building was previously the Supreme Court and City Hall. It took a decade to refurbish. It is more than appropriate that one of this island nations most historic buildings should now become keeper of many national artistic treasures
Marina Bay North Shore
The view across the bay to Marina Bay North reveals a growing number of modern feats of creative engineering. These include the elaborately designed Esplanade Theatres on the Bay, The Float at Marina Bay and hotels such as the Mandarin Oriental and Ritz Carlton. This area is also home to the Singapore Flyer which is currently ranked as the worlds largest observation wheel.
Singapore River – Asian Civilisations Museum View
Strolling along the Singapore River is an excellent way to spend a morning and to take in the many sites and to get a feel of the buzz of the city. Pausing close to the Fullerton Hotel and looking across the river towards North Bridge is rewarded with views of the Asian Civilisations Museum, the Supreme Court and the Parliament of Singapore.
Singapore River – Boat Quay View
Boat Quay is the area of water between North Bridge Road and Anderson Bridge. It is a popular night hotspot. This part of Singapore was an important commercial centre in the mid nineteenth century and, although businesses have moved elsewhere, it is now filled with bars and restaurants.
Singapore Wide Angle Panorama
Singapore is a small island measuring just 719 square kilometres and has a population of 5.8 million people. This means that space is at a premium and most construction is upwards rather outwards. The panorama below is just a portion of a skyline which is dominated by skyscrapers.
