Helix Bridge, Singapore

From series “The Most Unusual and Strange Bridges on Earth”
Year: 2010. Lenght: 280 meters.

Among the odd bridges of Singapore you have to mention the helix bridge, which was opened in 2010. The covered pedestrian bridge is characterized by the unusual design. From outside it looks like a DNA spiral structure. In the evening, when the LED lights turn on, the bridge looks just incredible.

Helix Bridge, Singapore Stahl served as the main building block for the bridge construction. Helix is ​​located in the center of lively Singapore and connects two large districts - Marina Center and Marina Bay. In 2010, a few weeks after the opening, Helix Bridge was awarded the 'World's Best Transport Building' award during the World Architecture Festival Awards. The size of the bridge is quite impressive. Its length is 280 meters. For the tourists and city dwellers, four large viewing platforms were set up on the bridge, opening the magnificent panorama to Singapore's most picturesque districts.

The unique bridge is the result of the collaboration of the best architects in the world who work in the architectural companies Architects 61, Arup and Cox Group. The authors of the bridge say that their form was not chosen by chance. The helix bridge symbolizes peace and life. The unusual bridge construction was even approved by the Feng Shui Specialists, whose opinion is very important in the architectural and construction areas of Singapore.

Top destination around Helix Bridge - Singapore City

For many people Singapore is only a transit point after twelve hours of flight on their way to Australia. It is located on the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula, just 140 km to the northward of the equator. The place is distinguished by a tropical climate with an average temperature of 27C and humidity of approximately 85%. It rains in Singapore all year round. Quite often there are several short rains during just one day. However, despite everything Singapore is much more than just a transit point! This is a very modern city-state full of most diverse attractions, and travellers will need more than a whole week to see them all.

The Raffles Hotel.
The Raffles Hotel was built in 1887. A hundred years later it was declared a monument of the national importance. The hotel is one of the last big Asian hotels of that era. Such famous people as Somerset Maugham, Rudyard Kipling, Joseph Conrad and Charlie Chaplin enjoyed staying there. In 1991, after an extensive renovation, the cost of which was 160 million Singapore dollars, the hotel returned to its former glory, which it was famous for during the period of its fame in 1915. However, the hotel managed to retain the charm and elegance of that era, which is only a memory today.
