The track passes several local landmarks including the Singapore Flyer, Supreme Court and Parliament. The track also incorporates Esplanade Drive and the Andersen Bridge, which was built in 1910.

A purpose-build section of track includes the start/finish area, pits and paddock. In the latter stages of the lap the track passes beneath one of the spectator grandstands.

Minor revisions were made to the circuit in 2009, and in 2013 the Singapore Sling chicane which formed turn ten was replaced with a more conventional left-hander. For 2015 the approach to turn 13 was altered in a bid to improve overtaking opportunities.
