Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.
Developed by Las Vegas Sands, one of the world’s biggest and foremost gaming companies, MBS is a landmark that symbolizes Singapore and distinguishes it from other neighboring cities. It’s iconic Infinity pool, situated 57 storeys above the ground, is an awe-inspiring engineering wonder.
The platform itself is said to be longer than the Eiffel tower laid down and is also considered the largest outdoor pool in the world at 650ft up. Its size equals three times the length of an Olympic pool!
According to an article posted online, The £4billion hotel makes it the world’s most expensive hotel ever built. :)
The SkyBar, perched above the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark observation deck, is considered the perfect hangout from which to survey the world below. Behold the panoramic view of Singapore’s skyscrapers! Haha
How to get there?
If you are coming directly from Changi Airport, the best way is to board the 24-hour complimentary MBS shuttle bus service for in-house hotel guests. You may board the shuttle service at the coach bay areas of the respective airport terminals which will bring you to the MBS coach terminal.
Or, you may board the MRT train by SMRT from any of the stations island-wide in Singapore. The nearest stations to Marina Bay Sands are Promenade station (CC4), Marina Bay station (NS27)and Raffles Place station (NS26). From these stations, you may then choose to take the public bus service or walk for a short distance to the premise.
Will post more photo journals soon!
