Singapore Off The Beaten Path: 432 reviews and 573 photos


Geylang Park Connector / Marina East extension (11)

Named after Singapore Republic?s 2nd President Benjamin Sheares, this 1,8 km long bridge connects East Coast with Marina Central with Marina South.

The pedestrian lane runs parallel to the Expressway but descends about halfway, at the Promenade MRT station (under construction) on Marina Central. You can go up again some 50 metes further away to reach Marina South.

Most visitors to Singapore and /or residents has likely passed here by car at least once, as it is a major transportation route to/from the Airport. That said, I have never seen a pedestrian walking here, and I presume those lanes are meant for escape routes only.

You probably remember the bridge for the brilliant views all around! Marina Bay to the left with its landmark Singapore Flyer (World?s tallest ferris wheel ? U/C), and a good look out over Marina East that you just explored, to the right it?s mostly rushing cars and the higher levels of the colorful Tanjong Rhu Condo, and in front this memorable skyline of Singapore?s Business district that you see on some postcards! Take a slow stroll to take it all in!

At the end of the day, after descending in the mess that the Promenade MRT U/C is, you deserve to pamper yourself with some superb food at Marina Square, Suntec City or even Esplanade, some of the best Malls in town just within 10 minutes walking distance!
