Visit this place during the evening or on a holiday, it is a nice picnic spot for many. The views are spectacular and very soothing breeze. There is a Chinese and a continental restaurant.
Built across the mouth of the Marina Channel, the Marina Barrage creates Singapore’s 15th reservoir, and the first in the heart of the city. It provides water supply, flood control and a new lifestyle attraction.
Like The other Chinatowns in the world Singapore’s Chinatown also features distinctly Chinese cultural elements and history. It is located within the large district of Outram.
When in Chinatown don’t forget to try awesome dim sum, at the “Yum cha” restaurant on temple street. “Smith street” has some shops where you can buy authentic dried meat sweets and snacks. Some of them are worth trying. Besides many souvenir shops and foot massage parlors, there are many specialty tea shops where you can spend some time learning about the collection of Chinese tea and purchase some if you like. Though some of the shops can be bit dodgy. I remember once I had purchased the “Jasmine Fairy Blooming Tea”. It was supposed to blossom in the hot water, which never happened.☺
