Singapore - Marina Bay Sands casino hotel and swimming pool

January 2011 - we have decided to take a couple of weeks off for a trip to Singapore. Of course all the new and old attractions were on the list and that includes China town, Marina Bay Sands the new casino hotel, Singapore flyer, a few shopping malls, Orchard road and a few more attractions that I don't really remember now.

This is the Singapore Flyer, picture taken at night on the way back from the Marina Bay Sands. Nice thingy, the lights along the wheel are changing color every few seconds giving a nice effect.

One of the most impressive attractions was the casino and hotel Marina Bay which was quite newly opened and for foreigners the entrance is free. Singapore citizens must pay a SG$100 for entering the casino. Since they won't allow us to take pictures in the casino, I have nothing to post about it, however the view is superb from upper floor near the swimming pool.

They say Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore. Developed by Las-Vegas Sands, it is billed as the world's most expensive standalone casino property at S$8 billion, including cost of the prime land.

It was originally set to be open in 2009 but there were various delays and finally it was open in 2010 mid-year.

Check out below a few images from the Marina Bay taken from above - from the 57th floor, from the swimming pool and from below.
