I went to Singapore! These are pictures of Marina Bay Sands, an ‘integrated resort’ located on the main island. It contains one of the island’s first casinos (free for foreigners, $100SG for locals). I didn’t go it, it looked like all the other casinos everywhere.
There’s also a big shopping centre (still in the process of being finished) and see that ‘ship’ on top? You can go up there, it’s called the SkyPark. (I didn’t, given the cloudy, sticky weather, the entrance fee – something like $16-20 SG and the fact I’m not keen on heights).
One of the levels of The Marina Bay Shoppes.
You can ride in a gondola for $9 SG (sorry, didn’t do this either!)
And a giant Ferragamo!
While I enjoyed my trip out to Marina Bay Sands (only about 15-20 mins from Orchard Rd via the train, MRT), it’s not a must see, especially compared to Orchard Rd for shopping. Stay tuned for the Orchard Rd edition…
