In addition to being a 2,500 room hotel, with a swimming pool that seemingly floats in the sky, the Marina Bay Sands hotel is also attached to a huge shopping mall, entertainment and casino complex.
Which includes flames and dancing water fountains.
Inside the mall is the Rain Oculus by Ned Kahn. It is a 22-metre diameter acrylic bowl set on a 90-ton steel structure. Every hour, it releases a swirling vortex of water from a hole in its base to the canal below.
The canal, where you can take a sampan ride.
And if that’s not enough for you, there are kilometres of the highest-end shops (or ‘Shoppes’ as they are called at Marina Bay Sands).
There’s something quite surreal about the whole place.
