Esplanade - Theatres by the Bay Tips (47)

Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay

Jakarta might be called the Big Durian, but now Singapore has two durians in the form of the the Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay. These two domes cover the theaters and concert hall within, and the spiky outward appearance is created by the use of aluminium sun shades.

Ala-Carte Japanese Buffet @ Esplanade Mall

Had the Ala-Carte Japanese Buffet @ Esplanade Mall during the visiting to Esplanade Mall.

At $23.80 ++ /pax , over 30 dishes for us to choose from.

The sushi & sashimi is very fresh and nice , over our expectation.

The skewers especially Tsukune ( Homemade Chicken Ball ) is very nice...

The buffet definitely worth of money .

Highly recommended.

The Esplanade

The Esplanade is quite pleasant area you can walk and looking onto Marina Bay and also a walkway along Singapore River which can lead you to other areas. They are several restaurant/cafes and shops and theatre.

The Esplanade Theatre was completed in 2002 and located alongside Marina Bay. It contains a concert hall which seats 1600 (Wiki). The theatre roof top resembles the infamous stinky fruit the Durian. Apparently at night you can watch live amateur theatre for free. It was a pity we were there during the day.

Great Views from The Top of Esplanade

The Esplanade is very interest and very beautiful place ,with the theatre inside and further up the mall and a terrace with Great Views of the Marina Bay. We came here for views of Marina Bay Sands Hotel and also views of Marina Bay and the CBD which is really awesome as the views is of a elevated position. Really easily accessable from MRT.

It really easy to get to the terrace ontop, you just got to go up to the Esplanade Mall from inside the Esplanande and go through it which will lead to the Terrace outside.

Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

The Esplanade theaters are two building shaped like durans that are situated in the center of Singapore right by the harbour.
The architecture of the buildings are very modern and they look really cool in my eyes.
They fit the modern part of Singapore very well.
I have never been inside the buildings but only seen them from the outside, but i will try and get inside the next time i am in Singapore and hopefully have a little more time for exploring the city.

Sadly Now Eclipsed by Marina Bay Sands

the esplanade was the premier destination in the waterfront area of Singapore and Including the Singapore Flyer Nearby, are the two newest icons at the Marina Area of Singapore and the Esplanade is the main venue of performing arts in Singapore and has various shops and dining areas along it's six hectare complex. At Present, it is not anymore the premier destination since the advent of the two Integrated Casino Complexes of Marina Bay Sands and Resorts World Sentosa, both had been eclipsed and a friend of mine here in Singapore told me that many of the shops in side the Esplanade will be closing soon. So Sad, The Marina Bay area of Singapore is a becoming a Victim of Overdevelopment and one of the victims is the Iconic Durian Shaped Esplanade.

Besides Esplanade theatre there is a floating stadium by the bay. It’s an excellent piece of Engineering. The entire performing stage is actually floating in the bay. It is the world’s largest floating stage. It is made up of steel and can bear upto 1070 tonnes of weight. The gallery has a sitting capacity of 30,000 people.

Piece of Marvelous Sound Engineering

Esplanade Theatre’s design is like two huge oval shells kept side by side. From a distance they look like 2 huge microphones or like eyes of a huge dragon fly. When you see them from a close distance you see spikes coming out of the shell. Acoustics of this theatre are built to perfection. The sound Engineeering that has gone into making this theatre is futuristic.

ESPLANADE PARK

Esplanade Park is a nice park with quite a few interesting memorials located in it.

Tan Kim Seng Fountain is a pretty Victorian cast-iron Fountain. Tan Kim Seng was a prosperous merchant and one of early Singapore’s benefactors. He made a major donation to the Singapore Water Works to alleviate a problem of his time, and in recognition of his generosity, this fountain was dedicated to him in 1882.

The Cenotaph commemorates those who lost their lives for Singapore during World Wars I and II. Its unveiling in 1922 was attended by Louis Mountbatten.

The Indian National Army Monument is dedicated to the army of Indians formed to fight for India’s liberation from British colonial rule.

Lim Bo Seng Memorial commemorates the struggle of a brave man. During World War II, Lim Bo Seng was an underground resistance fighter, who when captured, refused to reveal the names of his fellow fighters. Tortured to a cruel death, he was buried with full military honours. Four bronze lions stand in honourable guard to his memory.

Esplanade Park is located along Connaught Drive, opposite Padang and City Hall. It is one of the oldest parks in Singapore, being developed in 1943, and redeveloped in 1991.

Visit the Esplanade at Night!

Visit the place at night! Go up to the rooftop where you can get a night view of Singapore's skyline, and the Merlion and the Fullerton in the distance. The river view along Clarke Quay is also gorgeous, in addition to lots of pubs and clubs.
