Our Day In Marina (Bay Sand) – Part 1

D attended a Seminar 2 days ago in Marina Bay Sand Convection Hall and was given a voucher to go up to the Sky Park. As we have never went up there before, thus we decide to make use of the gift voucher. But when we were there we decided to give it a miss because the cost getting up there is still very really ex. We have to pay another S$34 bucks for me and Yvette.

To get up to the  The Sands SkyPark Public Observation Deck. Tickets to Public Observation Deck can be purchased at Tower 3 and the fare priced at :

  • S$20 for adults
  • S$14 for children (aged between 2 – 12 years)
  • S$17 for senior citizens (aged 55 years and above)
  • Maybe next round when the urge of going up is stronger?

    Anyway, our trip to Marina Sand make me really proud. We were in the lobby checking the building structure of the hotel. I saw many guests pouring into the hotel into the check in counter.

    I love seeing crowds in the hotel lobby!

    The space was so overwhelming. This is a  hotel blocks with 2,560 rooms spanning over 3 towers each 55 floors high, all topped by a 340m-long sky park with their trademarked infinity swimming pool, which spans half the total length of the sky park itself. The sky park have capacity of 3,900 people and is too home to the world’s largest public cantilevered platform, with an overhang of 67m from the north (third) tower.

    This hotel is incredible BIG.

    We walked from Marina Bay MRT Station. It took us about 10 mins to walk from there.  Although there are buses that we could take outside the MRT Station but we decided to walk because we were with the stroller.

    Luckily, the weather was kind to us. As we walked toward the Marina Bay Sand Integrated Resort, we could even stop and took some shots with this landmark along our way.

    We entered Resort via the Convention hall where D had his Seminar two days back. The roomy space had finally activated Yvette’s muscle. (Walking is still not an option for Yvette. She is still a tot who only like to run. She only walk when we hold her hand if not, she only wants to be carried.)

    We moved on and we saw this racing car and reminded us Formula One is coming.

    At the end of the Conventional Hall, we entered the Shoppe where all the finest in luxury fashion & emerging labels boutiques are located. We only walked in one boutique, Apple Store. We went in to check out iPhone 4 & iPad and really contemplating on getting iPad. (There are really a lot of applications on iPad not on iPod Touch.)

    Hmmm, let’s see!

    Of course we can’t miss the small “river” spans the width of the shopping area. It’s right in the middle. Along the river, they are offering Sampan Rides. The ride will cost you S$5 each regardless of adult or children when we enquired. This pricing is totally different from the site.

    How can we not walk toward the Casino even we are not going to go in. But we were not allowed to take picture even at the entrance of the Casino.

    And I was excited to see this store before entering the hotel!

    Finally we came to the Hotel of this Integrated Resorts. We walked from Tower 3 to Tower 1 and there’s a live band playing classical pieces to greet guest at the entrance of the main lobby.

    After going round the whole resorts, we decided to head back to Coffee Bean to have bunch before we leave this place for another agenda.

    Marina Bay Sand is definitely another icon of Singapore.
