I have just spent a week at MBS and am now in Kyoto. However, I wanted to remark on the poor state of presentation at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. It seems there are more and more 'vacant' outlets where the tenant has moved out because they cannot make the shop sustainable. There are signs and hoardings up all over the place. Near Shanghai Tang, every other shop is now boarded up to some extent.
I come to MBS ever year and this is the first time I have seen the Shoppes in such a bad state. I hope this is not a sign of the future.
On top of everything, I got food poisoning there at Kraze Burgers, but that's another story.
