What an attractive sight seeing spot. If you are in Singapore, you cannot miss it. When you are out side, take photographs such that you are holding the boat shaped structure on your palm. When you are there inside, move around, take photographs and enjoy...More

Marina Bay
More of a mini city than a neighbourhood in the
traditional sense, the iconic Marina Bay aims to
dazzle and entertain visitors of all kinds. This is
the Singapore found in glossy brochures, featuring a
world-class hotel, casino, shops, restaurants, bars,
and other attractions all geared towards pure
entertainment. The SkyPark at Marina Bay Sands
provides a stunning view of the city, a must-see photo
