As part of Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay Sands complex, this vast mall is home to hundreds of shops, world-class restaurants and some sophisticated cafes and bars.

After shopping, wining or dining, visitors can venture up to the casino, observation deck, rooftop bar or restaurants which can all additionally be found at the Marina Bay Sands complex. Read More...

Conveniently located right by Singapore’s Marina Bay, this multi-purpose mall is a great place to come to shop, eat and be entertained. The large range of shops isn’t as extensive or exclusive as at the nearby ‘Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands’; however, you’ll inevitably find cheaper prices at this slightly older mall. What we really love about Marina Square is its dining options – particularly the food court at the top. After doing all of your shopping, head up to the fourth floor to grab some cheap and tasty food from around the world whilst enjoying the stunning views over the bay through huge windows. Elsewhere, Marina Square also boasts a cinema and a 10-lane bowling alley.

Although the futuristic Esplanade building is better known for its theatres and live shows, this vast lifestyle complex also includes a whole host of great shopping options. Specialising more in the way of arts, crafts and home ware, shopping at Esplanade presents a nice change of pace, compared to the more frantic mega-malls Singapore so proudly boasts. Be sure to check out The Naturalist Grandeur for their great range of oils and perfumes, Maestro Guitars & Ukuleles for musical supplies and Csar Luxe for some rather swanky French home ware. You can reach the shops, theatres and restaurants by going to Esplanade MRT Station, just a minute or two away from Marina Bay. Read More...

Millenia Walk is a mid-sized mall sandwiched between the larger Suntec City and Marina Square malls near the Marina Bay. Although you’ll find a decent range of outlets and restaurants, Millenia Walk’s biggest selling point is its convenient location, accessible directly from Promenade MRT. There are plenty of high street names as well as a good few one-of-a-kind bespoke fashion stores such as Ed Et Al, Rossi, Mr Bulli & sons and Van Laack. The solid dining options include cuisines from around the world: for French, try Wine Universe Restaurant or find Vietnamese and Thai cuisines at Madam Saigon and Ruby respectively.
