Singapore: the reverse Atlantis

Marina Bay is the most modern part of Singapore. Prestigious hotels, gardens and theatres have been built on a piece of land that 50 years ago was still ocean. Land reclamation has expanded the city with a neighbourhood where the future begins today. This part of Singapore offers visitors an exciting list of must-see buildings and interesting attractions.
