Singapore River Cruise has included Marina Bay Sands in its tour route, opening up more transport options for both tourists and Singaporeans.

The operation commences on 1 September, picking passengers up from points such as Clarke Quay, Boat Quay and Merlion Park. Ticket prices start at Sin$4 and can be purchased from any Singapore River Cruise jetty.

The daily service, operating every 15 minutes, from 9 am till the last service at 10pm, will drop visitors off at the North Jetty where the ArtScience Museum is located.

The trip will take about 5-10 minutes from Merlion Park or Boat Quay Jetties, located just meters away from the Raffles Place and Clarke Quay MRTs.

Singapore River Cruise, General Manager, Mr. See Toh Yew Leong, said, “Our cruises are designed specifically to highlight Singapore’s rich history and point out to visitors from around the world, the journey the Lion City has taken over the decades to become the modern, successful tourism and commercial hub it is today. Marina Bay Sands has firmly established itself as one of the leading icons of Singapore and we are excited to include the integrated resort in our route.”

The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Executive Director, Mr. John Postle, added, “Marina Bay Sands is just days away from the public opening of the stunning Crystal Pavilions, which will be home to Louis Vuitton’s first Island Maison and the pulsating nightclubs Pangaea and Avalon. Also, with the 2011 Formula 1 Grand Prix around the corner, the launch of the water taxis is very timely. We want all our guests to have an experience like no other and with all the attractions at Marina Bay Sands, like the ArtScience Museum, the theaters showcasing world-class productions, the stunning stretch of waterfront dining, the launch of these water taxis provides guests an entirely new, refreshing and convenient way to reach Marina Bay Sands for a night out within minutes from key pick-up points.”
