{May 9, 2012}   Bay East

the highly anticipated opening of Gardens by the Bay is slated for 29 june 2012 with a line up of performances and activities to begin this new park in a big whizzbang way.

unknown to many however, gardens by the bay east, also known as bay east, is already open to public and offers very nice views of the city skyline. bay east links tanjong rhu to the marina barrage.

earlier this week, i checked out this precise route. the marina barrage can be reached by public transport by taking either the shuttle bus or sbs service 400 from marina south mrt station. the bus timings are clearly displayed at the bus stop, and can also be found online.

from top left: marina south mrt station (come out through the circle line exit), bus stop, bus timings, bus 400.

the last time i was at the marina barrage, marina bay sands was not yet part of the horizon. the view has therefore definitely changed.

a very leisurely stroll from the marina barrage to the end of bay east at tanjong rhu coveres 2.6km and can be completed in about an hour.

the walk was timed such that the sunset hues can be seen changing against the city skyline.

at tanjong rhu, sbs service 158 can be taken to mountbattan in the direction of aljunied.

enjoy the rest of the photos!
