Marina Bay Sands

Last summer, I went to Singapore primarily to experience Universal Studios. This summer, I was there for the Marina Bay Sands. Towering over the Marina Bay Area and eclipsing the Statue of the Merlion (which by the way is now roofed inside the Merlion Hotel), Marina Bay Sands is considered as one of the world’s most iconic buildings.

For SGD$20 each, my husband and I were whisked off to the Sands Skypark located at the 56th floor, which I must say has the most stunning view of Singapore. Well actually, only half of this is open for public viewing, the viewing deck facing the flyer and the esplanade, as well as the landscaped gardens where you’ll get a first hand glimpse of the world’s largest elevated outdoor infinity pool (and some bikini bodies too.haha). Add for some little pocket corners perfect for picture taking and save for some cool wind and refreshing view, I would say not bad, not bad at all. I must admit though that for a tiny second there I felt like shouting “so this is it?!” but shook off the feeling after reminding myself that I wasn’t a check-in guest therefore I have no right to demand more. haha. Anyway, here are some pictures that are worth SGD$20 bucks. I am warning you, no glitzy and glamorous photos, you have to check-in first before you’ll be entitled to that.:)

I suggest that you forego the bus/taxi ride and walk along this famous Helix bridge.

If you are a tourist and wants to go there, here’s how: From the Promenade station, walk along Temasek Ave. until you see the Helix Bridge (you’ll have to cross two spotlights), follow that path then go inside The Shoppes. There’s a link inside the mall that would lead you to the lobby of Marina Bay Sands, in the lobby, there’s a lot of porters around, just simply ask to be guided to the ticketing area.:)

    I’m truly enjoying the design and layout of your site.

    It’s a very ezsy on tthe eyes which makes it much more pleasant
    for me to come here and visit more often. Did youu hire out a designer to create your theme?

    Fantastic work!

    Hi I really enjoyed your post, reminded me of my visit to Marina Bay Sands. I visited the skypark with my wife, mother and father. We had to coax my mother for about 10 minutes before she would come near to the edge to see the view lol.

    If you go back again you will have to see the Gardens by the Bay. They really are worth a visit.

    one of my favorite places in the world. The land of the Merlion.

    Well, one can only hope 🙂

    It’s my dream to stay at the Marina Bay Sands someday. Even just for a night. I have to save hard for it. 🙂

    Wow! We went to Singapore before but we never stayed at Marina Bay Sands. It is only now that I learned that for SGD20 we can enjoy the view from the 56th floor!

    You nailed it. Marina Bay Sands is definitely one of the world’s most iconic and recognizable buildings. Photos of this magnificent structures never fail to amaze me. Especially photos shot a night. The lights give it more life.

    Marina Bay Sands is a marvel of modern architecture..
    one can only speculate the ingenious minds who initiated this.
    This place can alone promote SG and yet there’s still more to find out.
    Can’t wait to see this with my own eyes, and frame it in my camera.
