Uniquely Singapore - Esplanade

Continuation from my last post on my Singapore trip, the next destination that we headed out to was the Esplanade.
Esplanade is famous for holding events that usually are concert based with it's wide array of venues. They have a lovely concert hall which has a seating capacity of 1,600, a theatre that can house up to 2,000 people, a recital and theatre studio as well. There's also a rehearsal studio for the organizers to get ready for their events should they wanna book the place to get ready.

There's also the outdoor theatre which has a breathtaking view of the sea.

If you squint your eyes real good, you'll see the Merlion at the Merlion Park right across the sea. XD

It was simply a spectacular view although on the left hand side, it was still developing that part of the country at the time of my visit. :)

Looks like skyscrapers and tall buildings to me.

You also get a view of the Singapore Flyer and the ferry jetty on the left.
The time of my visit was during the evenings where the sun was setting and I would say it was really a good time to visit there because the scorching sun is about to set which means it's not too hot and the view of it during sunset, marvelous.

Of course is not all about concerts and events. Over there, they have a number of fine restaurants for you to dine and it's a place for you to do some shopping as well, a place of gift shops galore.

The Esplanade's nearest MRT station would be City Hall where it's a mere 10 minutes walk away.

Be sure to check out events happening at the Esplanade for some fun time!

Esplanade is my favorite place.
I went there two years ago.
There were lots of events. I had a lunch at Hawker near Esplanade.
It was very nice and cheep.

Ya, this place would look great when you look across the sea where the Maybank building is.

But coming up in my finale of Uniquely Singapore posts would be the best place to be to enjoy during the night so stay tune. :)
