Singapore: Around Marina Bay Sands

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.

At least twice every night there is a laser light show on the marina.

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.
