Scenes from Singapore: Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands...supposedly the most expensive hotel ever built to date, and a grand prize contributing to Singapore's GDP this year. All shot with the miniscule Panasonic Lumix LX-3 camera. This is a recce trip to visualise camera angles for a Hasselblad shoot later. No larger pics available.

On approach from the East, a double helix bridge leads into the complex:

Closer view of the three towers, one hotel:

The shopping area within is quite vast, and chock full of luxury stores:

The building features a skygarden. Entry for non hotel guests is by an entrance just underground. S$20 per entry.

The view was magnificent, I can imagine it looking spectacular at night. However, they don't allow tripods at the skygarden. Might be a challenge for the H3D to do night scenes.

Another view of the city...the Esplanade area:

The Singapore Flyer

Looking down onto the highway.

The view towards the Marina Barrage:

And the infinity pool atop the sky garden. Pretty cool, access for hotel guests only.
