Marina Bay Sands viewed from the Merlion Park. This time I will tell you about the night view of Singapore from the observation deck here! The night view from the observation deck that I visited around 22 o’clock was beautiful, but it was a little bit out of light? What time is the best time to visit here?

From Merlyon Park.
First, you can see Marina Bay Sands from the Merlion Park during the day. It’s the most popular place for tourists, but I don’t know why, but this is the best place to see the shape of the ship.
Let’s look at the observatory with a single lens reflex camera telephoto! The observation deck is at the top of the boat. It was very small considering the size of the boat, but when I went there, there was a surprisingly large space. This photo was taken around 17 o’clock, but it seems that there are not many people at the observatory.
Next, I will aim at the middle of the ship. This is just the part that is a pool. Swimming here is limited to guests, so every time I see this, I would like to stay there someday.
For your information, according to HIS, the accommodation fee of Marina Bay Sands is about 40,000 yen for 1 night. But this is the price for one room, so it was the same price for 2 people. In other words, it is a difficult hotel to travel alone …。
This time, I was thinking of looking at the night view from the observation deck (Southern Skypark) of Marina Bay, but I could see the beautiful night view from the foot of the deck without climbing it. This is a promenade along the bay that continues from the “Art Science Museum” and is a tiered platform facing the sea, so you can sit down and enjoy the scenery.
It’s right on the other side of Merlion Park, so you get a good view of the skyscrapers behind it. The nominal GDP per capita of Singapore is said to have far surpassed that of Japan at present, with a gap of $20,000, so I think this scenery will become more and more brilliant in the future.
What is the view from Southern Sky Park?
I climbed up to the observation deck (Sands Skypark) and came here! It closes at 22 o’clock on Mondays and Thursdays at 22 o’clock, but it’s open until 23 o’clock on weekends (Southern Sky Park HP).
Admission to the observatory is $23. However, if you go to the restaurant CÉ LA VI Seravi (Old: KUDE TA) on the same observatory floor, you don’t have to pay the entrance fee, so if you go there as a group, it’s definitely a better deal.
There are 2 levels here too, so you can get a better view if you go up to the upper level. However, the lights on the terrace are kept to a minimum for a good night view, so it is quite dark and you need to watch your step. I almost fell down once …。
Looking at the buildings from this height, there is a different charm from looking at them from the ground! It’s beautiful surrounded by orange light on the ground. But maybe because it’s late at night, it’s a little sad that the lights in the building are low.
This is the northern view. Marina Bay Sands stands between two streets, so you can see the path of light shining in orange from right above.
Is the night view best just after sunset?
The night view from the observation deck was definitely worth seeing compared to the view from the ground level, but the impression is that there is less light than I expected …, and after 22 o’clock, the lights become less. More than half of the light leaking through the windows of high-rise buildings has already disappeared, and it was not a scene full of light.
I guess the best time to see them is at dusk when the lights start to turn on. The sunset time in Singapore is around 19: 15 throughout 1 year, so you should aim at that time to climb the observatory. I will try it again when I visit in the month after next.
