Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands is a resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore, where my usual day is spent. It is developed by Las Vegas Sands, billed as the world’s most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion! I can’t remember how long it took for them to build as I’ve seen it from when I set foot in Singapore until it opened last year in June.

With the casino complete, the resort features a 2,561-room hotel, a 1,300,000-square-foot (120,000 m2) convention-exhibition centre, the 800,000-square-foot (74,000 m2) The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, an iconic ArtScience museum, two large theatres, seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, two floating Crystal Pavilions, an ice skating rink, and the world’s largest atrium casino with 500 tables and 1,600 slot machines. The complex is topped by a 340m-long SkyPark with a capacity of 3,900 people and a 150m infinity swimming pool, set on top of the world’s largest public cantilevered platform, which overhangs the north tower by 67m.  (wiki)
