A trip to Singapore would not be complete without a visit to the Marina Bay Sands hotel towering over the southern end of Marina Bay on a stretch of reclaimed land. I always try to come here on a stopover in Singapore and nothing beats a Singapore Sling with a view like that! This time however we learned that the bar is not open to visitors of the viewing platform on weekends and we were restricted to the smallish deck at the tip of the ‘ship’. Note for next time: make a reservation at the restaurant, save the money for the elevator ride up and spend it on a Singapore Sling instead. Since we didn’t want to support the sorry excuse of a tourist bar/snack shop at the viewing deck we found a great bakery in the hotel later and enjoyed some amazing cake and macarons.

guess who liked taking hundreds of pictures of these flowers …
This is where the wealthy part of the travelling community resides …
… with an incredible infinity pool at the top of the hotel!
View of the giant tree grove from above … they don’t look that big any more from up here.

Singapore’s impressive container harbour …
… with a sheer endless line of ships on the horizon waiting for unloading
