Marina Bay Sands Sky Park Offering the Best View in Singapore
Visiting Singapore will never be complete without dropping by Marina Bay Sands. The Marina Bay Sands features three 55-story hotel towers which were topped out in July 2009. The three towers are connected by a 1-hectare sky terrace on the roof, named Sands SkyPark. In front of the three towers include a Theatre Block, a Convention and Exhibition Facilities Block, as well as the Casino Block. The Art Science Museum is constructed next to the three blocks and has the shape of a lotus. Its roof will be retractable, providing a waterfall through the roof of collected rainwater when closed in the day and with laser shows when opened at night. In front of the Event, Plaza is the Wonder Full show, a light and water spectacular that is the largest in Southeast Asia. The SkyPark is home to the world’s longest elevated infinity pool. I wish to dip int the pool on that visit, unfortunately, it is only open to the Hotel’s guests. The Sky Park Infinity Pool measures 146-metre (478 ft), perched 191 metres above the ground. The pools are made up of 422,000 pounds of stainless steel and can hold 376,500 gallons (1424 cubic metres) of water. The SkyPark also boasts rooftop restaurants such as The Sky on 57 nightclubs such as KU DÉ TA, lush gardens, hundreds of trees and plants, and a public observatory deck with 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline.
The Sands SkyPark can accommodate up to 3900 people. The gravity-defying cantilever is one of the largest of its kind in the world. From this privileged observation deck, hundreds of visitors at a time can feast their eyes on the unforgettable panorama view of Singapore. Of course, if you love photography don’t miss to bring your telephoto lense and your tripod. Guests can purchase light refreshments, including snacks, water and soft drinks from the food and beverage booth located at the observation deck. The Public Viewing Deck – which is a ticketed area – will offer a unique experiences. Visitors can also enjoy a SkyPark Photo experience, manned by roving photographers, priced at $18 for 1 photo, $25 for 2 photos and $5 for each additional photo after that. The picture will be inserted in a specially designed photo frame. SkyPark souvenirs can be purchased from a merchandise booth at the viewing deck and from the SkyPark Shop located at the lobby of Tower 2. The Viewing Deck is open daily from 9:30 am to 10 pm*. (and until 11 pm on Friday, Saturday and Sunday).
