Singapore Excursions – Marina Bay Sands
Undoubtedly, one of the most iconic buildings in Singapore is Marina Bay Sands.
Its unusual shape triggers your curiosity. The three towers are, according to their architect, Moshe Safdie, inspired by a card deck. Indeed, if you look closer on your Singapore Walking Tour with your personal guide, you will see that both legs in all three towers are asymmetric and lean against each other, going wider in the bottom and narrowing, going up. The number 29 out of 75 tallest buildings in Singapore, is crowned by the almost 1.5 hectare Skypark (that is as long as 4.5 Airbus 380 Jumbo Jets! 😳). The Skypark is home to the world’s longest elevated swimming pool (a 150m infinity pool) which is an attraction in itself and can be accessed by hotel guests.
The base of Marina Bay Sands is home to a very large luxury mall, many cafés and restaurants as well as local eateries. To make the experience even better, during winter, there is an ice skating rink in the mall and all year long you can book a sampan ride in the canal that runs through the lengths of the mall, similar to the Venetian in Las Vegas.
So, next time you visit Singapore ask your private tour guide of Hello Singapore Tours to tell you about the Marina Bay Sands!
