Marina Square is one of the older malls in Singapore but recent renovations have definitely spruced things up a bit. The huge space in the middle of the mall is often filled with events and on-going promotions. Marina Square is a mere stone’s throw away from the famous Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, the Singapore Flyer and in close proximity to the Gardens by the Bay. It is also accessible by the City Hall, Esplanade and Promenade MRT stations. Marina Square offers 4 exciting levels of shopping with over 200 specialty shops comprising fashion, F&B, children & lifestyle concepts. In July 2013, Marina Square launched a gourmet wing branded as ‘The Dining Edition’ as part of its redevelopment plan. The Dining Edition features mid-to-upscale restaurants, bistros, bakery cafes and coffee joints. Several F&B restaurants at The Dining Edition have the added attraction of sheltered “alfresco” dining areas. Marina Square is one of the biggest shopping centers in Singapore. The Westin Singapore is located close by to the Marina Square, and is one of the most luxurious hotels in Singapore. The hotel has fabulous, elegant and plush accommodation, which gives out par anomic views of the city. The hotel is located nearby to mega shopping malls, theaters, dining, restaurants, cafes and electric nightclubs.

One of Singapore’s best food courts can be found at Marina Square, there’s an open air section that overlooks the waterfront. It gives you a splendid night view of what happens when the lights start beaming from the top of Marina Bay Sands.
