Snap Photos of the Infinity Pool
The number 1 draw to Marina Bay Sands is its stunning infinity pool set 57 levels above ground. The floating pool looks to be suspended in air, with the water flowing over the edge into the city scape. But to get that coveted photo in the pool, you have to be a guest at the hotel. With rates starting around $400 if you’re lucky (check rates on Expedia) another option to see this marvel is drinks at Cé La Vie or dinner at the soon to open Spago by Wolfgang Puck.
Dine at a Celebrity Restaurant

Choose from Cut by Wolfgang Puck, db Bistro & Oyster Bar by Daniel Boulud, Osteria Mozza by Mario Batali, Pizzeria Mozza by Mario Batali, Adrift by David Myers, Long Chim by David Thompson, Waku Ghin by Tetsuya Wakuda, Sky on 57 by Justin Quek as well as the two mentioned above. It’s a chance to try the recipes created by one of your favourite celebrity chefs and brag to your friends back home.
Visit the Louis Vuitton Island
Whether you have a few thousand dollars to drop on a purse or not, visit the Louis Vuitton Island for a stunning display of architecture. When accessing the island from the mall, visitors walk through the French brand’s museum displaying beautiful works by Louis Vuitton with displays changing quarterly. Don’t miss the top floor that has its own private balcony with views over the bay.

Stroll Through Gardens by the Bay
Accessed by a bridge from Marina Bay Sands, cross the highway to a man made park with Super Trees that glow at night. Once at Gardens by the Bay you can get a birds eye view of the park from the skywalk, grab a bite at one of the restaurants or take little ones to the playground and waterpark.
