Marina Barrage is a notable dam situated at the southern tip of Marina Bay in Singapore. Opened in 2008, Marina Barrage has played a crucial role in water conservation and flood management.

Apart from its essential role in managing water resources and preventing floods, Marina Barrage is also a beloved spot for leisure activities in Singapore. It attracts both locals and visitors who come to enjoy time with their loved ones.

Visitors often indulge in picnics, spreading out mats to relax in this area. I had the pleasure of experiencing this myself. The combination of fresh air and picturesque views creates an ideal setting in the afternoon.

For those interested in exploring Marina Barrage, this article will guide you on the simplest ways to reach there. We will explore two public transport options: the MRT and the bus.
