Marina Bay Sands SkyPark
Observation Deck at Marina Bay Sands Singapore
Marina Bay Sands SkyPark really offers a taste of the highlife by viewing Singapore from above. This large wooden decked area on top of iconic Marina Bay Sands hotel at the edge of the city’s harbour offers a 360-degree panorama, with nothing but a sheet of glass and a few wires between you and the view.
Sitting on top of the massive, three-pronged hotel that overlooks the bay and practically put Singapore on the map, Marina Bay Sands SkyPark has been one of the most popular attractions in Singapore since it opened at the turn of the decade. Entrance for adults starts at S$23 and there are discounted rates available for children and senior citizens. Read for more info at Marina Bay Sands SkyPark and Observation Deck in Singapore.
The observation deck takes up one side of the rooftop area of Marina Bay Sands, high above the city and the docks including an impressive bird’s eye view of Gardens by the Bay, Singapore’s futuristic park and the amazing metal tree structures. The best time to come up to the SkyPark is early evening, meaning you get to see Singapore by both day and night, and if you are lucky perhaps even a sunset. The park is open from 09:30 till 22:00 (at 23:00 at the weekend). Getting here is easy, take the MRT, the closest stop is Bayfront, and from here you can walk via the luxury mall directly into the hotel’s gigantic lobby. Head to the registration desk at the bottom of tower three, there is a separate lift to take you to the 56th floor and the outdoor viewing area.
It is worth considering taking the guided tours of the SkyPark, which happen at 10:00, 14:00 and 21:00 every day. Instead of just gazing at the city you can get a much deeper insight into all the amazing sights, as well as a potted history of Singapore. You also get to access the pool area, which is usually reserved for guests only. Sadly they don’t give you enough time for a quick dip! Each tour can only take a limited number of people around and registration starts from 09:30 on a first-come-first-served basis. Don’t worry too much if you don’t manage a tour, there is plenty to look at; be sure to take your camera so you can take plenty of shots. These are pictures that will make everyone at home jealous.
This may not be the highest view that you can get of the city, but sitting atop of such a famous hotel with the double view of the skyscrapers downtown and the boats below is well worth the trip up.
