Top 10 things to do at Marina Bay Sands Singapore

Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort which comprises three 55 storey towers of top class hotel rooms. The shape of the three buildings has a very unique look which look like a ship at the top, where the famous infinity pool is located which offer 360 degree of unblocked view. The architecture follows the principles of feng shui to create a perfect balance of energy and hormonisation with the environment. This beautiful creation was design by Moshe Safdie, an Israeli American architect.  This guy is really talented and you will see more of his work at Marina Bay.

Use of Natural Sun Lights

The resort’s design allows abundant natural daylight to illuminate indoor areas, reducing the need for additional lighting.

2.Rain Oculus – Sampan Ride at Canal

What make this place even more interesting is the Sampan ride along the canal at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. Don’t forget to make a wish at as you circle the Rain Oculus, a 22 meter diameter acrylic bowl set on a 90 ton steel structure, which collects the rainwater that fills the Canal, very eco-friendly!  If you look up, there is a hole that will release more than 22,000 liters of water per minutes. Too bad, I could not see the water release while I was there – Not as lucky. And Sampan ride not yet started as I was there pretty early. Sampan rides only start at 11.30 am onward.
