Marina Bay, Singapore

View of Singapore's Marina Bay at sunrise

by Dave McMahon © 2010

A sunrise view of Singapore’s Marina Bay and some of its futuristic buildings, including the Esplanade Theatres on the Bay and the Marina Bay Sands Hotel with its striking rooftop garden.

Dave adds:

“We were staying on the 16th floor of the Peninsula.Excelsior Hotel, in a room with two great views of downtown Singapore – one of Boat Quay on the Singapore River, and this one of Marina Bay. Looking across the Bay at night really made you feel as if you’d leapt forward in time a couple of centuries!

“I woke up one morning just before sunrise, saw it was going to be pretty spectacular and grabbed Kay’s camera to see what I could get.”
