Singapore Central Business District Skyline – Day time

Here are some pictures of Singapore central business district aka Shenton Way from a vantage point at Marina Bay Sands. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best of days to take photos. The sky was overcast and slightly hazy. We haven’t had clear blue skies in quite a while. I should know since I can now see for miles from my new office. I think I can even see some of the mountains in Malaysia even though my office is in the south eastern part of Singapore!

There’s the new Marina Bay Financial District on the left of the picture.

Huge open area in front of Marina Bay Sands Shoppes where you have an unblocked view of Shenton Way and all it’s big businesses.

The building with the reddish roof is the old Clifford Pier, which has now turned into the posh Fullerton Bay Hotel.

A closer look of the Fullerton Bay Hotel.

The Fullerton Hotel and One Fullerton. Fullerton Hotel was once Singapore’s General Post Office, while One Fullerton is obviously a building built in modern times, ie about 5 years ago.

See the mass of tourists taking in the sights of the iconic Merlion. I really don’t understand why tourists would specially come here just to take photos with the Merlion. Perhaps it’s like this Parisian I know that has never visited, or thought to visit the Eiffel Tower?

Interesting angle of the Esplanade and the Swisshotel?

Condos right in the heart of town. Are you the type that would love to live near your office or are you the type that would want to get as far away from it after working hours?

    I would love to live in Shenton way..and I would love to work there and live near the office, so that I can get home as fast as possible. I hate time wasted travelling.

    Yeah I don’t think I’ve any pictures with the Merlion. Of the merlion maybe, but not with.

      I think I would love to live in the city too, and yes, I detest mindless travel!!! At the MRT interchanges, seeing all the people coming from the opposite direction, I often wonder if all the Easties should just work in the East and all the Westies should just work in the West! Luckily I now have the iPhone, which makes things slightly better.

  3. […] Check out more photos I took of Shenton Way at night. I love taking photos of buildings at night. Firstly, it’s so much more cooling and peaceful. Secondly, I can avoid the mid-day glare of the sun bouncing off any shiny surfaces. And thirdly, the buildings don’t merge together in a a grey haze. They actually look more individual in the picture below, than in the photo I took of Shenton Way during the day. […]
