Vogue-U Potion - Marina Bay Sands in Singapore

May Peace Be With You....

The Marina Bay Sands....... well most of us have heard about this popular hotel and it's casino resort even before it is built. The enormous hotel, which dominates the Singapore skyline, has 2,560 rooms and suites, a fleet of celebrity chef restaurants, shopping areas, theatres, a museum, a casino and a crystal pavilion.
Since I have some photos sent to me via email by a friend, I guess I'll share them with you to view.
Enjoy....




The Marina Bay Sands Resort - photo taken from across the bay. According to the designer, Moshe Safdie, the three towers were based on a deck of cards


The view over the side: An artist's impression shows the Skypark that tops the Marina Bay Sands hotel towers, including the infinity pool


The Infinity Pool... and beyond! The pool stretches 150 metres, three times the length of an Olympic swimming pool.
Infinity pools are designed to make it seem as though the water extends to the horizon. In reality, the edge of the pool is usually about an inch below the water level. The water therefore spills over the edge into a catchment below, and is then pumped back into the pool. The concept is said to have been inspired by the terraced rice paddies in Bali, Indonesia..... hmmmm creative indeed!



A guest swims in the infinity pool of the Skypark that tops the Marina Bay Sands hotel towers - 55 stories over the city of Singapore.... oooooo I can't imagine swimming to the edge of this pool..... OMG!


A skydiver parachutes pass the Singapore Flyer and Marina Bay Sands casino resort as part of the venue's opening celebrations


The opening celebrations also featured a death-defying relay. Seven teams of three participants each scaled the three towers in succession before sprinting across the 340-metre long Sands SkyPark, where the infinity pool is located, to the finish line.
By the way..... do you dare to be the window cleaners??? It's 55 stories high!!!!!




Romantic moment - a newly-wed couple enjoy a canal ride inside the resort's shopping centre




A man looks through a steel web art structure in one of the towers... hmmm design looks complicated but unique...


Last but not least the Casino..... the entrance to the casino, which is attracting 25,000 visitors each day



Maybe can plan for a chill out moment in Marina Bay Sands..... or for those married couples, probably a honeymoon within the country!!!!
Lots of Luv..... Mak Pah
