“Top of the world”
Reviewed 30 April 2012

Singapore seems to keep re-inventing bigger and better.

The very efficient and reliable underground system will deliver you to one of several ways into the hotel/ shopping/ casino/ food metropolis.

You don't really get a feel for how big the hotel complex really is from the inside. Its only when you get up to the rooftop area via the super highspeed lifts that you suddenly realise how immense this is.

As a visitor you can get tickets for about $20SD to go to roof viewing area and Ku De Ta bar and restaurant, or for a little extra you can use the rooftop infinity swimming and leisure area.

We only went to the bar and viewing area but well worth the trip. 73 floors up in the sky with a 360 degree view that takes in the whole of Singapore and the seemingly endless flotilla of tankers and freighters filling the sea from end to end.

As with all things in Singapore, its very clean, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the concept is immense.

Strolling round the outer edge of the viewing area with its transparent plexi-glass walls is at the same time very daunting and very inspiring. The view is fantastic but getting so close to the edges was a bit scary. We did partake of a drink in the bar to celebrate what we thought of as being very brave and enjoyed the view in comfort.

Coming back down in the express lifts took us to the huge shopping complex underneath the hotel, which was another mind blowing experience in its own right.

As we came into the mall there was a whole gallery dedicated to some of the biggest names in jewelley and watches with the likes of Patek Phillipe, Cartier and Bulgari taking up a lot of space. Coming further into the shopping mall brought us more to brands that we could afford rather than just drool at and 3 hours later we were still walking round working out how we could remortgage the house to buy everything we had liked.

The complex also houses a massive casino and theatre setting.

There is just so much to see and experience here and so well laid out.

If you only have a short amount of time make sure you go to the rooftop bar if nothing else.

Reviewed 29 April 2012

This was and experience, we had seen a tv show on the making of the building, never dreaming to see it for real. Absolutely brilliant views, and beautiful shopping area.

“Marina Bay Sands Hotel”
Reviewed 28 April 2012

Go to the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel for $20 and enjoy the view of Singapore. You can also have an (expensive) photo taken of yourself taken inf ront of a green screen, as if you were standing in front of the hotel at night with its laser show.

“Spectacular experience to overstimulate everyone”
Reviewed 28 April 2012 via mobile

Marina Bay area offers so many options for everyone. We travelled to Marina Bay by river from our hotel, which I would highly reccomend. This place is a cultural, architectural, site seeing, and shopping mecca with something for everyone. Beware there are a lot of people in the area. You must visit the top of the hotel to see the city and stick around for the light show. SPECTACULAR
