Marina Barrage

Every year on the 2nd day of the lunar new year, our family takes a break from visiting relatives to do something fun with the children. For the past few years we have visited the various musuems or Sentosa. This year we decided to visit the Marina Barrage:

The Marina Barrage is actually a "Reservoir in the city". It serves to add to Singapore's water supply, control flooding and is also a lifestyle destination.

Flooding is controlled by these 9 gates which will automatically open when the water reaches a pre-determined level, and is then discharged into the sea. This bridge also allows us to take a walk across the Bay from Marina.

At the barrage, we also get a fantastic view of the Singapore flyer and the Singapore skyline!
