Marina bay sands

Does Marina Bay Sands hotel have a shuttle bus to anywhere else besides the airport

Thought I saw somewhere on the forum they had one to Suntec city

but cannot find where I saw it now

Also does anyone have any idea how much it would cost for a taxi from the hotel to china town,little India or Suntec city

we will be in Singapore this week so would appreciate any help the forum can give me

I have been checking out answers to shopping but not sure how to actually get to the air conditioned passages with shops and cafes underground but where is the entrance

Please help if you can without this forum I would not have been able to plan our trip these last few answers will make it complete

There is a new MRT station besides Marina Bay Sands (Bayfront Station) so you can move about to other places at your own time - no need to bother about the schedule shuttle (if any).

A taxi from Marina Bay to each of those places listed by you should not cost more then S$5 - SUNTEC City is quite near and is walkable in the evening (when it is not so hot).

No scheduled shuttles, but I understand that Bayfront MRT is already open. Very easy and cheap to get around Singapore using taxi, MRT and bus.

Marina Bay Sands is quite a standalone complex. If you are referring to getting to the malls in the Marina Bay area, there is no passageway connection from Marina Bay Sands to Marina Bay.

You have to walk north in the open across the Helix Bridge to get to Marina Bay. It is about a 10 mins very hot & humid walk during the day:

Once you get to the Marina Bay area you will find that the malls are connected by passages both underground and overground.

NO, free shuttle ftro the airport ONLY.

2. <<Also does anyone have any idea how much it would cost for a taxi from the hotel to>>

3. <<how to actually get to the air conditioned passages with shops and cafes underground but where is the entrance >>

If you ask about connectivity hotel-shopping mall- casino. YES all are connected via AC underground passage gallery. If you fail to find the entrance,do not hesitate to ask the hotel staff.

Happy planing!

Thanks Schonefeld

I am surprised they do not have a shuttle bus to other areas and glad you have explained that and the other information you have passed onto me

All this information from the forum will make our trip a lot easier

Thanks everyone

And thanks for the map ShuangMt

A taxi from Marina Bay sands will cost $6 at least even for a 50m journey - $3 location surcharge + flag down fair. Best to take the MRT for shorter journies.

use www.gothere.sg to plan your routes on public transport - bus, MRT, taxi. It gives you the cost and duration. Little india and chinatown have their own MRT stations. Suntec is above eplanade mrt station. All 3 are less than 15 minutes from bayfront mrt.
