Marina Bay Sands

Last weekend, I went to one of the integrated resort, Marina Bay Sands ("MBS"). It is not fully completed yet but pretty impressive. Here are some photos which I have taken to share in my blog.

The MBS hotel consists of 3 towers connected by a sky terrace on the roof which is named Sands Sky Park. The roof top will have an excellent view overlooking the skyline of our City. Below photo was taken from The Helix Bridge overviewing the MBS Hotel.

Although my cam can take wide angle shots, the 3 towers are just too big and wide to capture :(

I was across the road and took this shot - entrance of The Shoppes @ MBS.

The Shoppes @ MBS houses luxury brand names such as Cartier, Chanel, Gucci, Fendi, Louis Vuitton, Prada and many more. There will also be a number of casual and fine dining restaurants.

You can enjoy a sampan boat ride down the canal. An adult ticket costs S$10/- and Children (12 years old & below) cost S$6/-.

Jin Shan Chinese Restaurant which is located at the MBS Hotel Lobby, L1-05. These big lanterns are actually private dining rooms.

As you walk along the MBS Hotel Atrium, you can easily find tall ceramics vessels which hold trees in it. These vessels are hand made using the coil construction method by Zheng ChongBin and his artisans. The ceramic sculpture is named as Rising Forest 升林. It is amazing to see such tall and large vessels.

FUSE lounge - After a hard day @ work, this is a great place to chill out; with live band and sipping your favourite cocktail. Wooohooo ^.~

Lift Lobby - nice deco

When I step into MBS Hotel Tower 1, I notice the colorful paintings (artwork of Sol Lewitt #917, Arcs and Circles) on the wall @ the Hotel Receiption. It is very eye-catching *_*

Another noticeable artwork is the DRIFT by Antony Gormley. You can find it @ MBS Hotel Tower 1 Atrium. The DRIFT is made of many steel rods and nodes.

I really can't wait for the full completion of MBS resort, especially looking forward to visit the Sky Park, Museum which in a lotus-shape and I am keen to watch The Lion King musical @ the Theatre too :) Last, but not least, more photo-taking @MBS ^.~

Note: Got most info from MBS website :) You can visit and find out more on MBS.
