Singapore Trip: Sands Skypark

Marina Bay Sands was the latest tourist attraction in Singapore. It is the only hotel with three towers interconnected by a 1 hectare sky terrace, popularly known as the Sands Skypark. The skypark has the widest elevated swimming pool in the world that has an overlooking view of the city. Whoa!

Upon learning that the Sands Skypark has an observation deck that tourists can visit, I made it a point that hubby and I wouldn’t miss it. The day hubby had seen the Marina Bay Sands, he was too excited when he learned that we’ll be going to its sky terrace on our last day in Singapore.๐Ÿ˜‰ Since the Sands Skypark opens at 10:00 am, we decided to go there early. From Suntec City, we walked back to Promenade MRT Station and headed to Raffles Avenue. The Sands Skypark is located at the back of the mall but crossing the street is not possible. We had to get inside the mall, went to the basement and turned left to reach the hotel as well as the ticketing office only to find out that the observation deck in the infinity pool area was not accessible to the public due to a private function being held that time. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel would be having their grand opening later in the evening, an event that shouldn’t be missed. Too bad for us because we would be flying back to Manila at 6:00 pm.๐Ÿ˜ฅ The idea of re-scheduling our flight came to our mind but we had decided to take the opportunity since we were already there. Each ticket costs $20 but we were able to get it at $18 for becoming a Premier Advantage member of the Sands Skypark. Registration is free. All you have to do is to show your passport and fill-out a membership form.

We had also seen the on-going construction at the MBS, the Gardens by the B ay which will be another tourist attraction in the area. It consists of three unique waterfront gardens which are Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central. The Bay South, being the largest among the three, aims to showcase the best of tropical horticulture and garden artistry. Conservatories, supertrees, horticultural themed gardens, flower market and main event space are the attractions that will definitely fascinate everyone.

We’ll definitely go back at the Marina Bay Sands not as tourists but as guests of course so that we can experience swimming on top of the building while enjoying the astounding beauty of the city.๐Ÿ˜‰

 

A big THANK YOU once again to my hubby for his wonderful photos. <wink>
