The Esplanade or better known as Theaters on the bay is a fairly large performing arts center located in Marina Bay. The center sits majestically by the mouth of the Singapore River.It takes its name after the Esplanade park that’s located in the close proximity. Singapore has been a key tourist destination. Simultaneously the hospitality industry in too has been fast expanding and diversifying. Most tourist have moved away from the standard hotels and are now considering serviced apartments. Singapore has quite a handful of them. One that has been highly praised by past travelers has been Somerset Bencoolen Singapore. The self contained fully serviced apartments are designed to suit the business and leisure travelers.

The construction of the center began in 1996 even though the initial idea was put forward in 1989.
