The Lion in the City

The Merlion Park at One Fullerton is one of Singapore’s most visited destinations to date, with many tourists eager to take a picture of the mystical icon that has defined Singapore’s tourism industry since the beginning of its independence.

Intersecting technology and art

Opened in 2011, the Artsciense Museum has slowly become an integral part of the Singapore skyline, all while being one of the only museums in Singapore that explores the intersection of art, science, technology, and culture. The museum has curated exhibitions like Titanic: The Artefact Exhibition, Andy Warhol: 15 Minutes Eternal, Harry Potter: The Exhibition™ and many more.

Expensive and expansive?

The Marina Bay Sands as we know it is a national tourism icon that embodies both luxury and Singapore’s progressive society. Officially opened in 2010, the $5.5 billion-dollar development features 53 storeys, 2,561 hotel rooms, and is the 34th largest hotel in the world.

Since its opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands has welcomed millions of visitors, tourists, and locals and contributed greatly to Singapore’s economy while acting as the ‘Las Vegas of Singapore’.

Al fresco in the sky

One way to fully experience and immerse in the Singapore skyline is to visit the many rooftop bars in the city. However, only 1-Altitude bar gives you an uninterrupted view, allowing you to fully appreciate the city that never sleeps.

Going dark to go green

While the data is not fully disclosed, it is not hard to imagine how much energy it takes to power up the Singapore skyline. As the commercial buildings forming the skyline emit light throughout the night, the local government has taken steps to ensure that each of these buildings are doing so with efficient light sources in the pursuit of sustainability as part of a ‘Light Master Plan’.

However, many buildings that form the Singapore skyline have started to actively participate in energy-saving measures, most notably by switching off all its lights and going dark as part of the annual Earth Hour. Each year, Earth Hour organises activities around the bay area as part of an effort to educate and increase awareness of the environmental issues we face today.
