Make a guess, where are we going?
This is the world's most expensive standalone casino (it just costed S$8 billion). The resort is designed by Moshe Safdie, initially inspired by card decks. Maybe that's why it's hollow in the inside? Marina Bay Sands has three 55-story hotel towers, which are connected by a 1 hectare roof terrace, Sands SkyPark.
Many come to Marina Bay Sands skypark, ready to pay S$23 (15 EURO) for the view on one side. My recommendation to those of you visiting during daytime (i.e. when no dresscode applies) is to go back into the main building and get in the elevator that goes directly to the bar. You can buy a drink for the same (or even less) money and enjoy a broader angle, with less tourists and more celebrities. I visited Ku De Ta back in 2014, during night time. So coming back with Enrique, specially under a shining sun, had been in my plans ever since.
In the inside, Marina Bay Sands is actually hollow. The hotel rooms are on the sides of the building while the boat on top captures all the fun.
Climbing up there makes you feel as if you were standing at the top of the world.
There's something quite appealing about the cute little Singapore skyline. It might not be the largest, but the circular shape and tiny Merlion make it quite a remarkable one.
Then you start spotting the things you have visited back on the lower levels of land. It looks almost toy-like but it is so real and makes you feel so high and so small at the same time.
Guess it's what makes perspectives so mesmerizing, right? Three levels of altitude convey that miniature city feeling almost instantly. Have a look at this shot of the ice rink inside Marina Bay Sands... Amazing, right?
...back to normal perspective, the city is still shining bright.
