The Marina Barrage

The Marina Barrage in Singapore.

The Marina Barrage


Have you wondered why it's called a barrage and not a dam? Is it because 'Barrage' sounds more sophisticated?

Well, a barrage separates sea water from freshwater. That's what the guide at the Marina Barrage told us. :-)

Looks like a nice place. How do you get there?

If you are talking about public transport, there's a shuttle bus service from Marina Bay MRT.
