One of the first things to do, when in Singapore, is to stroll by Marina Bay in the evening — the place where both locals and tourists frequent, to simply sit and walk by the Bay as the hours slip by. This is also where you see Singapore’s famous mascot, the Merlion.
Start from the famous One Fullerton hotel and head to the end, where the fantastic seafood food courts and restaurants are. You can also see some bit of the famous 15-min laser light show from the Marina Sands Hotel from across the bay that starts at 8pm every day. That’s what we did. Called Wonder Full, if you want a better look, go up to the Event Plaza of the promenade at the Marina Bay Sands’ side. It is free of cost and takes place twice – 8pm and 9.30pm – everyday. I, however, was on the other side of the bay and saw these
A few pictures and stroll on. Soon you will hit the Merlion, where you will obviously stop again for some more photos. Keep walking and soon you will come up to a bridge that will take you across the river towards the float at Marina Bay’s Grand Stand. Turn right and keep walking on the promenade to hit the famous open food court, Makansutra Gluttons Bay.
Give yourself to Makansutra Gluttons Bay
It is, after all, a foodie’s paradise. You will have a tough time choosing from the Crabs, Prawns, Sateys, Grills and more. On the ambience front, it isn’t much, but the experience is!! The wooden tables, gorging on the amazing seafood and other delicacies is something you wouldn’t want to miss for anything.
We picked Chili Crabs without a second thought. Chilli Crabs and hot buns are the THING to have when here. You will fall in love with the Crab gravy. We did. And ordered some more buns to scrape off the last drop from the plates. And then, go ahead and order some fried prawns and some chicken grills. Wash them down with a tower of local Tiger Beer. When done, you will be ‘floating in happiness in the Singapore air’! Cheesy lines, but mirrors my state 😀
