If you wonder where are the places you could explore in the west of Singapore, then you might want to check out Raffles Marina. It is actually quite near to the Tiger Brewery which I had been few months ago for the free flow beer. If you think this ulu place located in Tuas is hard to reach by public transport then you are wrong! The nearest mrt is Tuas Link Station which was built right in front of the gate of Raffles Marina Club House.
Non-member Are Welcome!
You can still enter Raffles Marina Club House even though you are non-member and yes, you can dine at their restaurants and pubs too. This club actually has the boating services and facilitate plenty of yacht, including many megayacht!
Raffles Marina Vs Marina @ Keppel Bay
Over here, the Raffles Marina can park super big yacht as compared to Marina @ Keppel Bay. However, I noticed the yachts at Kappel Bay are newer and more fashionable but smaller in size.
Raffles Marina Yacht Servicing Area
Things you can do at Raffles Marina are :
1.Check out the Megayacht – The Asean Lady
This yacht was built in China and moved to Singapore now, it can accommodate 22 guests and 18 crew members. I have a peep at the Asean Lady and found out it didn’t look like a yacht but more like a luxurious 5 star hotel presidential suite. It also has staircase leading up to the higher level. If you are walking toward the lighthouse, don’t forget to take a peep at this luxurious baby.

You only have about half an hour to catch the sunset. The best time to arrive is around 6.00 to 6.30 pm.
4. Instagram with the famous Lighthouse – highlight!
Photographers were busy getting ready with their gadget to capture beautiful moment of sunset.
The lighthouse stands 12 meter high and flashing once every 10 seconds with a bean that reaches 15 m, this is one of the most picturesque place in Singapore.
5. Gazing at Border of Singapore & Malaysia
Raffles Marina lighthouse situated at the border of Singapore and Malaysia, overseeing the Tuas Second Link causeway to Malaysia. Wait for the night to come and gaze at the lights of the second link Tuas causeway bridge together with the lighthouse. It makes a romantic landscape for sure.
