Escape the crowds at Marina Barrage and make your way down to Keppel Marine East Desalination Plant for a change! With an unobstructed view of Singapore's skyline, stay until nightfall for a breathtaking view from the rooftop of the Desalination Plant. A slight drawback would be the prohibition of pets and kite-flying in the area, so do remember to leave your pets and kites at home for another day!

While the Esplanade is renowned for its grand concerts and performances, the roof terrace is often overlooked by most. With a picturesque landscape of manicured lawns, shrubs, and trees to provide shade, it provides a green refuge which contrasts uniquely to the modern architecture of the twin domes of the Esplanade. With a magnificent view of the city and Marina Bay, the Roof Terrace is the perfect spot for a relaxing picnic.
