The track is 5.065 km long in a harbourside location similar in style to the Monaco Grand Prix and the Valencia Street Circuit in Valencia. The circuit is designed by KBR, Inc. and modification of the original one first proposed by Hermann Tilke. The pit area of the circuit is located in an empty plot of land off Republic Boulevard and beside the Singapore Flyer.
A temporary track leads from the pit area and under the Benjamin Sheares Bridge to Republic Boulevard and turns onto Raffles Boulevard. It then proceeds along Nicoll Highway, Stamford Road and Saint Andrew's Road around the Padang, past the City Hall.
The track then goes onto the Anderson Bridge, past the Fullerton Hotel and make a tight left turn to Esplanade Drive beside the Merlion Park. It joins Raffles Avenue and cut right after the Esplanade to the front of The Float at Marina Bay and return to the pit area via another temporary road around the Singapore Flyer. The track layout is unique in that in between turns 18 and 19, the cars race underneath a section of grandstand of the Floating Platform.
