Marina Bay Sands is the worlds most expensive building and it's iconic design has seriously transformed the Singapore skyline. The three 55 story towers are capped by the famous infinity pool - the highest and largest swimming pool in the World. As well as the luxurious Marina Bay Sands hotel, the complex is home to a huge variety of things to eat, do and see and is really worth a visit.

The Shoppes

The Shoppes is an opulent complex of the World's most coveted designers - everyone from Chanel to Prada and Ralph Lauren to Cartier can be found here. It's Singapore's first large scale luxury shopping experience and is every bit as impressive as you'd expect. Look out for the Louis Vuitton "island" boutique - accessed by it's own underground tunnel!

The complex takes "shopping centre" to a whole new level and includes an ice skating rink and Sampan rides down the man-made canal. Downstairs you'll the vast casino, the equivalent of four football fields of gaming spread over 3 floors. Upstairs is the hottest rooftop in town for 360 breathtaking views over Singapore.

Ku De Ta

Perched on the 57th floor right at the top of Marina Bay Sands Ku De Ta offers one of the best views in Singapore. With a cocktail costing around the same price as the entry to Marina Bay Sand's observation deck it has quickly become one of Singapore's hottest rooftop venues. A few drinks at Ku De Ta is a perfect way to enjoy the luxury the iconic Marina Bay Sand's has to offer without the hefty pricetag.

We bagged an outdoor table on the wooden deck and were treated to uninteruppted views of the city and strait. The bar also looks over the iconic infinity pool so we could peer over at the guests enjoying their "swim at the top of the World". This tropical oasis is elevated at 200 metres so makes a great spot to grab some pictures of the city skyline and the sweeping boat like roof of Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Voted as one of the top ten global hotspots by The New York Times this really is a plush place to spend an afternoon in the city. Well behaved kids are welcome before 18.00 and the dress code isn't enforced during the day so we were able to get in wearing our usual flip flops and shorts.

The Waterfront Promenade

This timber boardwalk at Marina Bay is part of the 11.7km waterfront route around the reservoir which links Marina Bay Sands to Gardens by the Bay, Marina Barrage and the new Sports Hub. It's a great place to wander, rollerblade, bike ride, scoot or push a pram and generally let the little ones run loose.

We took a stroll from the Helix pedestrian bridge past Singapore's first art park to Garden's by the Bay. A great walk with plenty of sights and paths to explore on our way. Further along you can find Marina Boulevard - a tropical walk with flowering shrubs and shady trees and at night it sparkles with twinkling night lights.

Wonder Full Light Show

For some after dark, free, family entertainment, you can also take in the spectacular light show at Marina Bay Sands. Wonder Full is a stunning show of special effects, lasers, projections and giant streaming water screens, set to a breathtaking orchestral soundtrack. For 13 electrifying minutes you can sit back and immerse yourself in this amazing show against the backdrop of the Singapore city skyline. Fun for the whole family, it’s no surprise it’s been voted “Best New Tourist Attraction”. Showings are on nightly at 8.00 and 9.30pm - get there early to secure a spot!
