Getting to and from the Marina Bay Grand Prix Circuit

Since the Singapore circuit is actually a street race set right in the heart of this small city state, getting to the actual race is relatively easy. Spectators can rely on Singapore’s excellent public transport system or even walk.

With the action centred around North Marina Bay, mostly in the old Colonial sector, visitors can catch the MRT (subway) to City Hall, Raffles Place or Esplanade stations, but should be prepared for a great deal of walking, since many roads will be blocked off or severely congested, making taxis useless. The actual Marina Bay MRT station is nowhere near the race.

Approaching from the east via the East Coast parkway will bring visitors close to the paddock end of the circuit but parking is likely to be a tedious effort in this compact, but well planned city.

Getting to Singapore itself is best done by air and Changi International Airport is a major Asian hub boasting an impressive selection of flights en-route to Australia from Europe, in addition to regional flights from across Southeast Asia. There are plenty of scheduled and budget airlines that fly into Singapore. In fact, Singapore has a dedicated budget airline terminal.

The MRT as well as numerous taxis and buses service the airport, with transportation options reasonable. For accommodation during Grand Prix weekend, it is advisable to stay in hotels outside of the city centre, because the city will be congested and most hotels hike up prices for race weekend.

An alternative way to reach Singapore is via a land bridge from Johor Bahru in Malaysia, if driving from Kuala Lumpur or flying into Kuala Lumpur. The drive can take about five hours.
