I love staying at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. From the first time I saw a picture of the infinity pool of the hotel, I dreamed of visiting it.
The Marina Bay Sands is an ultramodern hotel, a building that looks like it comes from the future. It consists of three giant towers and a platform that houses an infinity pool, observation deck, and restaurant. The roof, which you can pay to access, has a Sky Park with an incredible view of the city. Since Marina Bay Sands opened in 2010, it has quickly grown to become the real symbol of Singapore. This architectural wonder in the heart of Singapore is a place that will definitely captivate you as you begin exploring the city.
