First port of call The Esplanade Theatres, known locally as The Durian. A very striking modern construction. It looks like...well a couple of Durian fruits!!! The Esplanade features two outdoor performing venues. They are the Waterfront Stage and the Stage@Powerhouse, located along the promenade. These venues stage regular free performances, meant to liven up the arts scene. Other than that, the building also features a large roof terrace with a panoramic view of Marina Bay and the city area. There are also courtyards and open spaces which can be used for various activities.
From here we wandered over the bridge to view that water-spouting, half-fish, half-lion Singapore icon The Merlion. The view is fantastic and no visitor leaves without taking a photo here.
We then wandered along to the Singapore Flyer.
There is so much to see and do in the vicinity of The Flyer. Why not try the Kenko Fish Spa. Uncover your legs sit on a bench and dip your legs in to a large fish tank with hundreds of little fishes who will eat all the dead skin off your feet!!!!!
We rounded off the night with a wonderful meal at La Viva Spanish Bar & Tapas 30 Victoria Street, Fountain Court, CHIJMES.
Oh Yes, we will visit Singapore again.
