And if it seems to you that a couple of days to Singapore will be quite enough, then you are very mistaken.

What to see in Singapore

Marina Bay Sands Lookout

It is this hotel at the hearing of everyone who plansvisit Singapore, and those who have already been in it. On the roof of the Marina Bay Sands is the world's largest infinity pool. There, on the 57th floor of the hotel, there is a restaurant and bar CE LA VI (formerly KU DE TA) with an observation deck. The bar has quality drinks, good snacks and live music. A couple of floors below there is another observation deck, which leads paid excursions. But the trick is that for the same money you can go up to the bar on the floor above and enjoy the views, sitting at a table with a glass of cocktail.

Spectra Laser Show at Marina Bay

The show runs daily at 20:00 and 21:00 near the hotel Marina Bay Sands, and the best view opens with a special observation deck at the entrance to the shopping center which is located at the foot of the hotel. If you look from other angles, it looks at all about anything, not visible and not audible.

The show is enchanting. The best we have seen. Fountains move to the beat of beautiful, wonderfully selected compositions, and on splashes the laser draws a colorful plot of the show.

Duration just 15 minutes that fly by in one breath. The show has an interesting plot, it fascinates and fills with emotions.

Viewpoint Hotel One Altitude

This is the tallest building in Singapore. Its height is 282 meters. From the bar located on the roof opens a view of the city in 360 ?. The 1-Altitude Bar is considered the tallest outdoor bar in the world.

In my opinion, a review of the city from this barmore interesting than with the lookout Marina Bay Sands. Firstly, it is located higher, and secondly, from the bar you can see the Marina Bay Hotel, which you will not see if you are on its roof. Well, plus the bar is better here, if you rely on the reviews.
