This is the view from Novotel Hotel, sitting right in the middle of Clarke Quay, surrounded by this vibrant and dynamic entertainment hub.
Nestled along the bay of Singapore River, Clarke Quay is a colorful kaleidoscope of buildings offering veritable smorgasbord of food, drinks, music and entertainment.
It is truly an integrated venue option for everyone since you can find an array of restaurants, hip cafes and jazz clubs in the same vicinity. It is definitely not a bad place to hang out and have a drink.
Marina Bay Sands
Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort fronting Marina Bay in Singapore, which lavishly offers a taste of high-end lifestyle.
This resort features not only the hotel rooms but The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands mall, a museum, two large theaters, seven “celebrity chef” restaurants, ice skating rink and the world’s largest atrium casino.
And, it offers the best panaromic views of Singapore through its Skypark Obeservation Desk, Skypark Bars and Restaurants, and Infinity Rooftop Pool (sadly it is only restricted to hotel guests).
1. The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Mall
a. Light and Water Show
Do not miss the chance of witnessing a stunning showpiece of visual effects by the waterfront, where the universal tale of the journey of life is told through the use of electric light and laser effects. It is open to public and no admission fees is charged. Just remember to check the showtimes beforehand and plan accordingly.
2. Art Science Museum
This boldly iconic lotus-inspired building is an Art Science Museum, which hosts not only its permanent exhibition but also touring exhibition curated by other museums.
Gardens by the Bay
A must visit tourist attraction with its whole redefined garden strolling experience. There are so much to explore here so I choose to visit the most unique and fascinating part of the garden, “The Supertrees”.
You may even get an up-close look at the technical marvels of these futuristic Supertrees on the skyway 22 metres above the ground. But, note that the admission only opens from 9am to 9pm daily, which the last ticket sales is at 8pm.
I am in awe of these amazing supertrees that are 25 to 50 meters tall, which come alive with a 10 minutes exhilarating show of light and sound at night, called the Garden Rhapsody, which only plays twice per day. So, do check the showtime in order to catch it in time.
