You can't go to Singapore and not be struck by the Marina Bay Sands hotel. Even if your budget doesn't stretch to anywhere near the grandeur of staying there you can still get a sense of the engineering achievement of the place just by looking at it. You'll see it from so many points of inner city - from the Singapore Flyer (though given you'll be looking at its 'bow' you won't get the best view of it from there) and from Marina Bay.

Apart from the thoroughfare aspect of the place (you can walk through parts of it at will such as the lobby and if you are transiting through it from Marina Bay to Gardens by the Bay) there is part of it open to the average 'Joe Public' and that is the Observation deck at the bow of the ship. This is not cheap. But few things in Singapore are. The observation deck itself does provide a wonderful view to both landward and seaward. There is a sense of space as it is open to the elements and would be spectacular in a tropical downpour. There are interpretive panels so you can read about what is in front of you view wise and it is best to take your time and checking out the view of the Gardens by the Bay, the Barrage and the ships beyond it, Marina Bay itself and the promenade. Photography buffs will have a field day.

There aren't really any places to sit and bide a while. Presumably they don't want to encourage you to stay too long. There is a gift shop and yes it is expensive but... well what would you expect? Look if you simply must have that fridge magnet but baulk at the cost of getting it here then pick up a cheap one down in Chinatown later on in your stay.

Totally recommended with a couple of tiny caveats.

Ticket to the park can be bought at the Hotel Lobby. I feel the ticket cost is a bit dearer. Its $23 per adult.
The skypark stretches over all 3towers of Hotel Marina Bay Sands giving tourist and locals great view from all sides. It’s a kind of open roof observatory…. The Glass fencing at the edges should have been a little clearer for photography. Awesome view at night when the city is lit. you have the courful view of the city and also the reflection of lights in water is splendid.

If you visit its ok if not it’s still ok!

An elevator takes you to the viewing platform in a matter of seconds and this hotel is even higher than the Flyer and you are able to look down on it. If the weather is clear then you will have good views of Singapore

there is very limited area permitted to walk up there. you can see only view of the bay,no garden nothing else. for the view you can see it elsewhere in singapore such as singapore flyer, high floor restaurants, nearby hotels' rooms. i think it's not worth the 23 sgd you paid.

Marina Bay is a must stay or at least visit to admire the fantastic architecture from outside, inside and the garden at the top with it's famous infinity pool
Across the pond is Sentosa Park....take time and bottle water...this place is loaded with all type of distractions for all ages. It's a huge open park with great waterfalls and water displays,restaurants,Casino,Games,rides,Walks,Hikes,Benches and more.
I love The Lion statue at the top....you'll see it.
