    Sky Park Marina Bay Sands

    I Have a separate Thing to do tip for the SKy Park of the Marina Bay Sands simply because there are lots of activities to do inside (that is if you are willing to spend a lot of money ok since this is a 7 STAR Hotel!). If you are a hotel guest, the entrance to the sky park is free but for others it is $ 17 ($ 25 if there is a free picture inside the sky park, be sure to ask the ticket counter that you get the added option of having a panoramic shot taken in one of the locations in the Sky Park). The ticket counter is located at the side door just outside the taxi waiting area of the Marina Bay Sands at Basement 1. The Sky park boast having the highest and longest infinity pool in the world (only available for guest) 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 and has a 146-metre (478-foot) vanishing edge. The skypark also has a mini Park and has the famous Ku De Ta' Lounge and Bar and Private area and Restaurant located separately in the Sky Park (see my Ku De Ta Lounge Tips in the Nightlife Section). There is also a souvenir shop located right on the end of the sky park near the stairs going to Ku De Ta' Restaurant where you can buy souvenirs like my favorite Shot Glasses and Refrigerator Magnets hehehe.

    The Sky park is open daily from 10:00 am to 9:00 pm on weekdays and up to 11:00 pm on weekends.

    part two of my Marina Bay Sands Tip with more pictures.

    I'm surprised that there is not a Things to do tip yet on this new Icon of Singapore and let mme get the honor of Having the first Things to do tip of Marina Bay Sands!

    This Ultra Luxe Complex is situated at the newly reclaimed land of Marina Bay and was Built by the famed Las Vegas Sands Group and is one of the two Integrated Resorts Complexes in Singapore (the Other is the Resortsworld Complex in Sentosa). It aims to get a share of the High Roller Market of Asians and their families and not to compete with Macau which is the Main Casino Area of Asia. It had it's grand opening last february 17, 2011. This huge Enterntainment complex is only one of the four 7 Star Hotels around the world and is the first 7 star hotel of the Las Vegas Sands Group and the complex boasts of three 55-storey hotel towers and a huge Shopping Complex featuring a Theatre Block, a Convention and Exhibition Facilities Block, as well as the Casino Block, which have up to 1000 gaming tables and 1400 slot machines. The Art Science Museum is constructed next to the three blocks and has the shape of a lotus. The Shoppes offer uber luxurious brands such as Hermes', Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Burberry, Patek Philippe, Gucci to name a few and 7 Luxe Restaurants owned by Michelin Star Chefs like Mario Battali and Wolfgang Puck (the restos are separate from the in house hotel restaurants and bars and the price of the food here will cost you BOTH ARMS and LEGS). they also have a budget food court Named Rasapura Masters located at the Basement of the Shoppes.

    The hotel features 2,561-rooms and suited and the cheapest for a tourist for a standard room is US $ 550 a night (Locals get lower rates from promos). The Main Draw of the Joind is the Fames Aircraft Carrier Like SKY PARK at the 52nd floor which features the tallest and longest infinity pool in the world (limited to guests only) and SkyPark also boasts rooftop restaurants, nightclubs, gardens hundreds of trees and plants and a public observatory with 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline ( you have to pay $ 20 for the entrance to sky park) and also has the Ku De Ta Restaurant, Lounge, Poolside and Bar areas in the Sky Park which was voted by the NY Times as one of the ten best places to see around the world!

    well Marina Bay Sands is primarily a gambling hub ok with assorted distractions for families but again it is owned by a big Gambling Consoritum hence you will have a big casino complex at the Ground Level at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Complex (not on the hotels itself ok but accross the street with escalators connecting it to the hotels!) a caveat: Singaporean Citizens and Foreign Permanent Residents are not allowed to Enter the casino's UNLESS they are WILLING to PAY 100 Singaporean Dollars As FINE!

    Visit the SkyPark

    by Strikinsmile Written Apr 14, 2011
    View from the MBS SkyPark

    Marina Bay Sands, one of two integrated resorts in Singapore, is not only worth visiting because of the casino, but also because of the SkyPark, which is located on top of the hotel, literally.

    Here, you will see a spectacular view of Singapore, especially at night, when lights from the buildings, bridges and even the ships give a colourful glow and brightens the night up. You will also see the infinity pool, which is a visual delight in itself. However, this pool is only accessible to hotel guests. I bet it would be awesome to go night-swimming there against the city backdrop.

    An entrance ticket to the MBS SkyPark costs SGD20 for adults and SGD14 for children.

    A visit to the Marina Bay Sands and Helix Bridge

    by audspice Written Mar 3, 2011
    1 more image

    As mentioned before, it is adjacent to Marina Bay Sands. You can either go to MBS or to the Helix bridge first depending on your drop-off point. If you are travelling by bus, you may alight in front of the Marina Bay Sands Tower 2 then walk back to Tower 3 where the entrance to the Sky Park is located. Entrance fee is Sgd20. After your trip to the Sky Park Observation Deck , go to the ground level and go through the tunnel connecting the hotel to the MBS Shoppes. From there you can exit going to the Helix bridge.

    Marina Bay Sands

    by arianne_1504 Written Dec 11, 2010

    I can't tell you much about the casino and that's because you can't get in unless you have your passport with you. A drivers license is not sufficient.

    The Skypark costs $20 to visit, even if you are aiming to spend money on a drink at the top. Needless to say, I didn't see that either.

    What I can tell you is that whilst the outside of Marina Bay Sands is truly a sight to behold and something quite unique and fabulous, the inside is not. It looks like they have run out of money and just decorated it with whatever was left over. I was especially appalled by the artwork behind the reception desk. A real shame!

    Marina Barrage

    by putri_jogja Written Aug 29, 2010

    I just wanna add information for thing to do in Singapore.
    You can visit Marina Barrage. It is very interesting place to visit.
    Yes, few of tourism website inform about this place.
    Inside this place, alot of information about how Singapore maintain the water system. It has also the museum (futuristic style). The architecture is very impresive. From here, you can see Skypark. The best time to visit there is around 4 PM. See the sunset from her with the background of Skypark.

    how to go there :
    Take MRT to Marina Bay, and then take bus SBS no 400.
