Marina Bay Sands Skypark, Swimming on the Roof

From this hub, I’ll take you tour at the biggest hotel in Singapore. Marina Bay Sands is a great combination between luxury hotel, stunning views, amazing shopping experience, culinary delights, World-class entertainment, and exciting events. This building was developed by Las Vegas Sands and the project spent about S$8 billion.

Marina Sand hotels consists of three unique hotel towers crowned by the magnificent Sands SkyPark. This hotel consists about 2,500 rooms and suites, stunning views of the Marina bay, swimming pool, and the gardens. Shopping at the Marina Bays Sands gave the meaning to retail therapy. This place is officially opened on 17 February 2011 as the grand opening.

Sands Skypark development is so unique and astonishing. Even so, the process is still complicated and requires high accuracy. Another place as the main attraction in Marina Bay Sand is an integrated resort Sands Expo and Convention Center. These places are located right in front of the hotel. Large meeting room has an area of 1.3 million square feet of convention and exhibition space. This place can accommodate more than 45,000 delegates, 2,000 exhibition booths and 250 meeting rooms.

"Wonder Full", Southeast Asia's largest light and water show

This is amazing entertainment. It took place at Event Plaza at the promenade. With the duration about 13 – 15 minutes on Sunday to Thursday (8 pm and 9:30 pm) and Friday and Saturday (8 pm, 9:30 pm and 11 pm). We called this "Wonder Full". This is great combination between light, music and sound (orchestral soundtrack). This show using electric light and laser effects. Such as: LEDs, searchlights, interweaving lasers as visual effects, giant streaming water screens and video projectors. It’s totally free and good entertainment for the whole family. We can see the demonstration on the video below.

Let’s swim on the roof!

This is the main attraction at the Marina Bay Sands. Personally, I am amazed with the architectural wonders for this hotel. It’s like a big ship floats atop the three soaring Marina Bay Sands hotel towers over 200 meters in the sky. It’s so huge with the dimension about 12,400 square meters of space. It can host up to 3900 people. From the video and the picture, the swimming pool like without border. It looks so scary to swim over there. But believe me that it’s quite safe for us. This architecture is one of the largest gravity-defying cantilever in the world. From Sand SkyPark we see the landscape of Singapore from a height of 200 meters. Visitors can walk around the city saw Singapore through a 360-degree stunning and unforgettable through public observation deck. The view from this architectural masterpiece was very beautiful. Views of buildings in Singapore's skyscrapers can be seen perfectly. While on the other side, you can enjoy the view of South China Sea and the ship back and forth. The entrance fee to the Sand Sky Park is varied, for adults at S$19, children about S$13 (2-12 years) and S$16 for elderly (55 years and over).

In addition, we can also enjoy green gardens originating from 250 species of trees and 650 species of plants. Renowned architect Moshe Safdie explains why it should be built Sands SkyPark. "We still want a jogging track, swimming pool, and others. The government said that this country is a city park. Therefore, we created Sands Skypark, which represents the symbol of Singapore as a city park," he explained.

Unvelievable. Amazing. Awesome. Incredible. There are not enought brilliant adjectives in my vocabulary to describe this unbelievable Skypark atop the Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore. You have done an outstanding job, pras, describing this unusual tourist attraction and including photos and videos. The Skypark looks somewhat like an enormous ship that has been marooned atop the hotel.

The last time I visited Singapore, the night zoo was the biggest attraction. Now I'll have to return to visit the Skypark in person. Thanks for this awesome hub. Voted up of course.

What an exciting place Pras. There was a hub on this a while back but you give it the proper treatment like always. Would really like to swim in the pool there and see the all the attractions. Singapore is a very tidy & neat place but the rules are very strict-perhaps too harsh on some matters. Anyway, thank you my brother for another eye feast! Vote er up!

prasetio30, I agree with Mr Packer. There was a hub recently covered this subject. It was by someone called poshcoffeeco. Yours is far superior packed full of information and fantastic pictures. The other hub was done on the opening day I believe.Thanks I have learned a great lesson this day and I will be eternally grateful to you. And that lesson is quantity and quality of content is what is needed to be a true Hub Legend. I still have such a long way to go I can now see that.

I will vote up and awesome but there should be a higher category like up/awsome +++++.

Thanks again.
