Marina Bay Sands

Nov 20, 2010

Nowadays, Singapore seems to be in a constant state of flux. First came Genting’s Resorts World Sentosa, home to Southeast Asia’s first Universal Studios theme park; then came Las Vegas Sands Corporation’s Marina Bay Sands (MBS). Designed by renowned architect Moshe Safdie, the 855,000-square-meter MBS rises from reclaimed land in the city’s downtown, with three 55-story towers capped by a 340-meter-long cantilevered floating garden. And like its Vegas counterparts, the opulence of MBS does not stop at its façade. Inside, this property packs an overloaded menu with over 2,500 guest rooms, high-end designer boutiques, restaurants helmed by Michelin-star chefs like Daniel Boulud and Tetsuya Wakuda, and a glitzy, atrium-style casino. Come nightfall, head up to the Sands SkyPark, which with its restaurants, nightclubs, a public observatory and a 150-meter infinity pool, makes the perfect spot to drink in views of the city’s ever-changing skyline.
