Did you know you can now take a water taxi to Marina Bay Sands?
Accessible by public transport such as the train or bus, wider access is now available to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands in the form of water taxis. You can take it from Merlion Park for $4 for one way and the journey is just five minutes.
You can also take it from Boat Quay (near Raffles Place and Clarke Quay MRT stations) for $8 (one way) and the journey’s about 10 minutes.
The water taxis are the ones from the Singapore River Cruise and Marina Bay Sands has been included into its tour route. This daily water taxi service operates every 15 minutes from 9.00 am till the last service at 10.00 pm.
Although it was only five minutes, I felt peaceful sitting there in the breeze on a sunny Friday afternoon, staring at Shenton Way behind me and wondering what all the people working there are doing in their highly-stressed lives.
Dropping visitors off at the North Jetty where the world’s first ArtScience Museum is, tickets can be purchased from any Singapore River Cruise jetty.
Ok if you don’t have the time to slow things down and take this river cruise to Marina Bay Sands and you absolutely have to drive, Marina Bay Sands is offering complimentary parking to those who spend a minimum of S$20 between 10.00 am and 4.00 pm at The Shoppes from Monday to Thursday. This also extends to other destination highlights including the theatres and the ArtScience Museum.
