Waterfront Promenade, Singapore Overview

The Waterfront Promenade is a long walking stretch of more than 2 miles. It lies across the bay walkway and connects people to many attractions at the Bayfront, Marina Centre and Collyer Quar. The Waterfront Promenade has a well-kept waterfront that has boutique shops and fancy restaurants. Visitors often come here to witness the sunsets and high rise views. The main attraction that steals the show is the Merlion that lies at the other end of the Waterfront Promenade. An excellent place to click Instagram-worthy pictures, this is also a good place to enjoy your evening and escape the monotony of everyday life.

Being a viewing area platform for various public events, the promenade is constructed as an environment-friendly entertainment zone. Another quirky feature of the promenade is that it has mild mist sprays and breeze shelters that have motion sensor fans to soothe the visitors from the scorching heat of Singapore. Surrounded by towering architectures and fancy architectures, the promenade reflects the true essence of the Singapore city. Apart from this, the Promenade also acts as a perfect track for fitness enthusiasts. People come here for a jog, walk or even to have their outdoor yoga sessions. During nights, the beauty of this place increases to its double. A Light and Water show is clearly viewed from the Waterfront Promenade, that highlights the city's journey to progression.

More on Waterfront Promenade

At the far end of the Waterfront Promenade lies Singapore's signature Merlion. Depicted as a mythical creature that has a body of a fish and the head of a lion, the Merlion serves as a symbol of tourism in Singapore. It has a wide representation as a mascot to the city and its citizens in tourism branding, sports, advertising and as a national identity. No tourist ever returns from Singapore without witnessing the Merlion in all its glory.

Spectra is a breathtaking light and water show that has been leaving its viewers awestruck since 2017. It is clearly viewed from the Waterfront Promenade. Combining state-of-the-art lasers, lights, water effects and projections, Spectra creates a spectacular show based on Singapore's journey of becoming the progressive cosmopolitan city it now is.

The fifteen-minute show is divided into four parts. It uses innovative water-fountain technologies such as pyramids, gyroscopic arcs, straight jets, lava and mist effects, creating a canvas for visual projections of Spectra. The heartbeat of the show is the 12-meter-high glass prism that opens into life, adding extra reflection to the show. Spectra was developed by Imagination Australia, an Australian agency, making it a phenomenal show.
