Fall In Love With The Colourful Skyline Views Of Singapore

Apart from its food, culture and fantastic shopping, Singapore is home to one of the best skylines in the world. Even after multiple visits, it still packs an amazing punch. From rooftop bars that let you have a tipple with your view, to bridges that showcase the scale of the city, you should definitely not miss out to get your fill of the Singapore skyline. So whether you’re going just to admire the view or whether you’re heading to take some amazing photos of the Singapore skyline, here are the best places to get the skyline views of Singapore and all the amazing things it has to offer!

Merlion Park

First one on the list of the best views of the Singapore skyline will be the Merlion Park. If you’re looking for the perfect photo of Singapore’s skyline from ground level, look no further than Merlion Park. Located near Raffles Place, Merlion Park offers various vantage points for you to get that perfect snap. For travel photographers, this place has amazing views for you to click a hundred pictures. With this one, you get to see Singapore’s famous mascot spurting water into the Singapore River.

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

Next up for the best views of the Singapore skyline, is the Esplanade. Located right on the waterfront, this strange, durian-shaped fixture in the middle of the city offers fantastic views of the Fullerton Hotel. Not only is the building lit up (which lets you see its unique architectural elements), but it gives you a fabulous view of Raffles Place set amongst the Singapore skyline. This offers Singapore’s best skyline due to the number of bars within walking distance! You’ll definitely have a great time admiring the Singapore skyline!

Marina Bay Sands Skypark

The Skypark at Marina Bay Sands is slightly different, as it does require you to pay an admission fee – but it’s not too expensive. The small cost is totally worth it for the epic view of Singapore’s skyline, as it offers an unparalleled view of the Singapore skyline from way up high. Without the glass that impedes your view at some other picks, the Skypark is completely open and its observation deck is enormous. With this one, you won’t have to side-step around hundreds of others, you can just take your time and take in the view. There might be some jealousy when you see hotel guests swimming in the infinity pool, but we promise the view is worth battling the green-eyed monster for!

Singapore Flyer

The Singapore Flyer is a must on this list. Unlike the other sky decks, the Singapore Flyer is as much an attraction as it is a splendid place to view the Singapore skyline. From a height of 165 metres from sea level, you can see Singapore from multiple angles, and the Singapore skyline changes every minute you’re inside. As someone that struggles to make up my mind at the best of times, I like that I can see each part of Singapore’s skyline from a bird’s eye view. If you want to see Singapore’s architecture from above, this is your best bet. You can even see parts of Indonesia and Malaysia from flyer!

1-Altitude Bar

If you want an amazing place to view the Singapore skyline, 1-Altitude is a classy place where you can drink the night away whilst seeing Singapore’s sights. As well as providing an amazing viewing gallery on the 63rd floor, you can grab a drink and lounge away in its retro interior.

Gardens by the Bay

No list of best places to view Singapore skyline would be complete without including Gardens by the Bay. An immense garden filled with tree-like structures, Gardens by the Bay has numerous viewing points to take in the Singapore skyline. From the waterside area that leads up to Marina Bay Sands to the treetop viewing areas, Gardens by the Bay is a fantastic choice to experience Singapore’s architectural feats.

To be honest, this is more than a place to see the Singapore skyline, this is a gorgeous day or evening out, and it’s such a unique feature in the city. It’s something you won’t see in any other city in the world – and it’s for that reason (along with the amazing skyline views) that you shouldn’t miss it off your to-do list.

The Pinnacle At Duxton Skybridge

This is a unique recommendation for finding the best view of the Singapore skyline! This isn’t a tourist attraction but actually a residential building, with an incredible sky bridge built into it. They only let 200 non-residents visit the Duxton sky bridge each day but it’s a really unique and it’s one view of the Singapore skyline that most tourists won’t ever get to see.

The Sentosa Cable Car

This isn’t the most flashy Singapore skyline view or the most perfect one, but cable cars are great fun, and you can see the city of Singapore for miles around you when you’re on it. It’s a great place to capture some interesting shots, but it’s also an excuse to visit Sentosa island too – which is one of the city’s most popular attractions.

Faber Peak

If you want a bit of a break from the hustle and bustle of the city, Faber Peak is an outdoor park located a little out of the city, where you can explore some of Singapore’s beautiful wildlife -and perhaps most importantly – enjoy some of the best views of the Singapore skyline. From up in Faber Peak you’ll get dazzling panoramic views of the Central Business District, which is where all the towering skyscrapers are.

Have you found your perfect place to see the Singapore skyline? Whether you choose to head up to 1-Altitude or simply want to stroll along the Esplanade promenade, you will definitely have a fantastic view from wherever you choose. So, what are you waiting for?
