The latest tourist attraction in Singapore atop the Marina Bay Sands Casino & Hotel. The view from up here is awesome and the wow factor lies in the hotel's swimming pool which overlooks the entire Singapore CBD skyline! 



Go up around 6 pm to get a great day shot, 30 mins later the sunset shot and another 30 mins later the night shot! Do not go up in the day as it'd be way too hot by the time it opens at 10 am. The Skypark opens daily until 10 pm. The price of getting this magnificent view is S$20 (about US$18) and you are allowed to stay as long as you like. It's actually atop the 57 levels of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and Casino. The newly opened hotel is the biggest one in Singapore and boasts some 2561 rooms. It's also touted as the most expensive stand alone casino, built at a cost of some S$8 billion (US$6.5 billion). 

Expensive you think? Well, take a look at its design. It's like a ship atop 3 buildings! Have you seen anything like it? I haven't! But now, I've stood atop it! What a great view and an awesome place to be! Get a drink or even a dinner up there. It shall be the most romantic one you can have in Singapore!



When I was there last weekend, it's certainly the best sunset I've ever seen after all these years of staying in Singapore! How blessed!

Tip:
You can visit the skypark for free if you stay at the hotel. Alternatively, you can also swap your Lion King entrance ticket for free if you're going for the show at the hotel. Last but not least, if you wish to visit the ArtScience Museum adjacent to the resort, the price is S$35 for 3 exhibits (Salvador Dali, Van Gogh & Tang Treasures) and the Skypark. However, imho, Van Gogh exhibit is a rip-off!

Last but not least, you can also go up to the same deck but not the skypark for free if you're dining at the restaurants. If I'm not mistaken, there is however a minimum cover charge of some S$50 per person!
 
Simply breathtaking! Simply breathtaking! Simply breathtaking! Simply breathtaking! Simply breathtaking! Simply breathtaking!
