Singapore Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

"The Big Durian"
Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay

How to get there:
A 10 minute walk away from City Hall MRT or Esplanade MRT Exit D Station.

Singapore is a great place to lose some calories, so wear some comfortable shoes and see where it gets you. We walked alongside Marina Square which is located at the City Hall district we kept on walking until we spotted Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. A Concert Hall and a Theatre that's dedicated for the performing arts. It was a gigantic metallic Durian fruit that's why some preferred to it as "The Durian" or "The Big Durian" or "The Durian Shell". Durian seemed to be such a pleasing fruit to the Singaporeans that they made a building which replicates the fruit itself.



The Aluminum Sunshade creates such a perfect clone of the fruit with it's reflection on the water. People don't just come around here to see shows, you can just actually visit the place ,squat anywhere you like and have a small picnic. I will try to visit this place next time and at night time, they said it looks more interesting with it's lights on.
