Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore and a landmark of the city. At its opening in 2010, it was deemed the world’s most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion (US$6.88 billion). The resort includes a 2,561-room hotel, a 120,000-square-metre convention-exhibition centre, the 74,000-square-metre The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, a large theatre, “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating crystal pavilions, art-science exhibits, and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines. The complex includes three towers topped by the Sands Skypark, a skyway connecting 340-metre-long with a capacity of 3,902 people and a 150 m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world’s largest public cantilevered platform, which overhangs the north tower by 66.5 m The 20-hectare resort was designed by Moshe Safdie.

The resort is owned by Las Vegas Sands in agreement with the Singaporean authorities.

Nevertheless it is a spectacular structure which is visible from every corner. The pool is really spectacular, however the weather did not cooperate while I was visiting. Just a short walk away there are Gardens by The Bay, which is a must see. And also the Singapore Botanic Gardens. Singapore is just packed with activities, architecture and just about everything. Oh yeah I forgot to mention….. it was also F1 weekend ahead 🙂
