A common feature on bucket lists or places to see before you die, http://www.placestoseeinyourlifetime.com/tag/marina-bay-sands-skypark/ welcome to Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

When I found out I was coming to Singapore, I remembered a picture my brother sent me years ago, of the most incredible pool suspended from 3 towers. An infinity pool unlike any other. A pool of my wildest dreams. This pool is the SkyPark at the top of Marina Bay Sands Hotel in Singapore, the jewel of the city. Ever since I first laid eyes on that photo, it has been my dream to go there.
Today that dream came true! Unfortunately, I couldn’t afford to pay the $400 a night that it costs to stay there so I had to find another way.
Luck was on my side and as the doors opened on the 57th floor of the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, I stopped breathing momentarily. It was unlike I could ever have imagined. I took a moment to congratulate myself for having managed to find a way in, best blag ever in my books! I then changed into my bikini and began to take it all in.
I ordered a cocktail, of course… Only £8! Not bad at all. I savoured every single moment, the view changed every minute as the sun went down.
Considering that pools, roof tops, amazing views, sunsets and cocktails are amongst my favourite things in the world - this was quite an unforgettable experience.
Best. Pool. Ever.
Thank you Singapore for this treat :)
