I visited Singapore for the first time in three and a half years. Actually, I used to live in Singapore for one and a half year to attend a business school. A reunion was held in Singapore, so that’s why I came back there. This times, I spent about a week going around Singapore to take as many photos as possible. In this article, I will write about Marina Bay Sands as part of Day 2.

Following the previous post, I returned from Singapore Flyer to Marina Bay Sands.
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort developed by Las Vegas Sands, a casino resport operating company in Las Vegas. It was opened in July 2010 and many Japanese people knew it through a TV commercial.
As I mentioned in the previous article, Marina Bay Sands has three areas (Tower area, Shopping area and Promenade area) and I will start to go around Promenade area first.
Crystal Pavilion (Louis Vuitton)
Crystal Pavilion, which floats on Marina bay, is an eye-catching building in the Promenade area. Crystal Pavilion is a shop of Louis Vuitton and the second largest boutique next to the flagship shop in Paris.
Exterior of the building.
671 pieces of glass are used for the building.
Reflection on the glass was impressive.
The interior of the shop was also fancy and artistic, so if you love Louis Vuitton, it should be must-visit.
I will continue to go around Promenade area.
You can see Fullerton Hotel and surrounding buildings on the opposite the shore.
Then, I took pictures towards Tower area (hotel).
In front of the hotel building, there was shopping area.
So, I moved into the shopping area.
Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands is one of the largest shopping malls in Singapore and there are about 270 shops there. The shopping mall consists of three floors – Bay Level (1F), Galleria Level (B1F) and Canal Level (B2F).
In the mall.
There was an artificial canal and “Sampan Rides” on the Canal Level.
While there were lots of fancy restaurants in Marina Bay Sands, there was also a food court, “Rasapura Masters”.
I had a quick dinner there. Then, I moved to Sands Sky Park.
Sands SkyPark Observation Deck
Sands Sky Park is a rooftop park of Marina Bay Sands. There is Sands SkyPark Observation Deck along with Infinity Pool and restaurants. Only hotel guests are allowed to enter the pool, I went around the observation deck.
Here are some photo of the observation deck.
From the observation deck, you can view Gardens by the Bay in the east,
Singapore Flyer in the north,
in the west, Marina Bay and
Fullerton Hotel and surrounding building.
Now it past 7 p.m. and the sun started to go down.
Then, I started to take pictures of the observation deck around sunset. I will write about it in the next article.
That’s it for the article about Marina Bay Sands as part of Day 2. Visitors can enjoy Marina Bay Sands enough, even if they don’t stay the hotel, but I would like to stay Marina Bay Sands some day. Basically, I don’t put much value on accommodation when I travel. However, if I visit Singapore next time, I am just dreaming of staying at Marina Bay Sands and Raffles Hotel 🙂
In the next article, I will write about Marina Bays Sands in the evening.
