Singapore has some spectacular futuristic architecture on its inner harbour.
A high-rise boat that contains a high-rise swimming pool, an unique architectural feature on the harbour.

The ominously blue skyscrapers.
The pedestrian bridge.
Another interesting building is the Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay, known locally as ‘The Durians‘.

I had no idea–spectacular indeed! Thanks for posting these.
I hadn’t expected much of Singapore, it was our city of entry into Malaysia. It was way more interesting and there was a lot going on – we actually went back early at the end of our trip in order to spend some more time there.
Very interesting and unusual photos, Singapore seems like a mesmerising city.
There is so much going on in Singapore – the ‘Durian’ had a lot of events, some of them free. And the ‘Boat’ on top of the hotel was actually a swimming pool – next time we’ll go up there – imagine the view!
Wow! Such interesting architecture.
I’m not sure how Singapore managed to arrange only spectacular architecture on the harbour – but it certainly made walking around the harbour well worth it even in 35°C heat!
Interesting angles and creative photography !
Great photographs! Really creative compositions- Especially the pic of Esplanade.
Hope you enjoyed your time in SG!
I wish you had been able to enjoy sunset along the skyline instead of gloomy weather. Marina Bay Sands (the ship building) literally glows orange and golden during sunset- quite in contrast to the ‘ominous blue skyscrapers’!
According to our taxi driver the monsoon season was running late that year – when we came back in late November after 5 weeks in Malaysia and it was pouring – a sunset would have been nice but then it may have been way too hot for us wimpy Canadians!
