Singapore Cruise ship Terminal

Singapore Cruise Centre
The dramatic new Marina Bay Cruise Centre - an iconic facility itself - is large enough to accommodate two mega-ships at the same time. It is located next to Singapore's new downtown district (which is still in the planning and construction stages), but there are currently no large shopping facilities in walking distance. The terminal itself features one convenience store.

The closest attraction is the massive new Marina Bay Sands - an integrated resort with a hotel, shopping center and casino. The new terminal is near a Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) station. Cruise lines provide shuttle service to the station.

If your ship is docked at the Singapore Cruise Centre, you're right in the heart of the VivoCity shopping mall. Though it's not as glitzy as downtown malls (though it's said to be the largest in Singapore), you'll find all the necessities and then some, including McDonald's and Costa Coffee, ATM's and sporting goods stores.

Downtown is a 10-minute cab trip (or an easy ride on the ultra-clean MRT), though visitors wanting to head over to Sentosa Island and Mount Faber can hop on the cable car or a train, which is adjacent to the center.

Every day is a shopping day in Singapore, as the city is a well-established retail Mecca. Most malls and department stores are open daily from 10 a.m. to 9:30 p.m. (The Mustafa Center in Little India operates round-the-clock, and it has an awesome selection of cheap goods - but no alcohol or books.)

Orchard Road, particularly at its junction with Scotts Road, is the place to start - and possibly finish. (Take the MRT to the Orchard Road station.) The area offers a vast array of retailers, such as Tangs department store and the fantastic Kinokuniya, a vast bookstore that ranks as the most comprehensive in Singapore. Popular shopping centers also include the ION Orchard, Wisma Atria and Ngee Ann City. The last of which houses the Japanese department store Takashimaya (which even has a department of London's famed Harrods); the food court on the basement level is a great place for lunch and people-watching.

Take time to stroll at Boat Quay, which is a mixed development of old wharf houses (converted to commercial use - mainly as restaurants) and modern skyscrapers of international corporations. During the night, the Boat Quay is a bustling spot, with ethnic restaurants serving every type of Asian meals.

Close to Boat Quay, Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay is undoubtedly the largest and most comprehensive performance arts venue in Singapore. Nicknamed the "Durian" by the locals, the complex resembles the round, spiky and notoriously pungent Southeast Asian fruit in its design. Located under the distinctive dome-shaped floors are a concert hall, theater, several recital rooms and an arts library, as well as an array of shops and food outlets. Esplanade also features an outdoor bar on the roof terrace, Orgo, which offers great views overlooking the bay.

Singapore is flat, so you can get a great view of the city from the City Space bar on the 70th floor of the Swissotel Singapore. Across the street is a more famous spot for libations: the Singapore Sling was invented at Raffles hotel's
