Marina Bay Sands Singapore
The Marina Bay Sands Singapore is a hotel on Singapore’s waterfront. Standing Majestically overlooking the Singapore Strait, at over 200 m high you can’t miss it. While you have to pay to stay at the hotel the complex that surrounds it is free to visit. Underneath the hotel is a shopping centre with over 170 stores, mostly high-end luxury places.
When you buy your tickets you are offered a photograph of your time on the observation deck. We didn’t go for this option, so I can’t comment on whether it’s worth it or not, but I have heard it is 80 Singapore dollars which does seem expensive to me. But as I say I cannot verify this.
You can visit the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands Singapore for a small charge the views are spectacular as can be seen in the photos below. You pay your money and then take an elevator ride up 57 floors to the rooftop. The views across Singapore and out over the Singapore Strait are amazing. Opening hours are Monday to Thursday 9:30 AM to 10 PM and Friday to Sunday 9:30 AM to 11 PM.
The price is 23 Singapore dollars for adults 17 Singapore dollars for children and 20 Singapore dollars per senior citizens. Of course, it’s free entry for hotel guests. We didn’t stay at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore because it was expensive! Tickets can be bought on the day ordered in advance from MarinaBaySands.com.
There is a cafe bar on top of the observation deck, however, we didn’t use it. I have no idea of the prices but I have heard it is not cheap. After all, you’re 57 floors up, you are kind of a captive audience!

The Marina Bay Sands has its own light show in the evenings Sunday to Thursday these happen at 8 PM and 9 PM and on Fridays and Saturdays, there are three showings at 8 PM 9 PM and 10 PM. It is a 15-minute show with music water jets visual projectors lights and lasers and all at the right price of free!
You can watch it from either the Marina Bay Sands complex itself or from across the water on the merlion side. Use the Raffles Place MRT station and head towards the Fullerton hotel and see the Merlion as well as the Marina Bay Sands light show
If watching it from the Marina Bay Sands itself get their about 30 minutes early to guarantee a seat. Of course, it is busier on the weekends than during weekdays Use the Bayfront MRT station if you are watching it at the Marina Bay Sands Singapore itself.
Marina Bay Sands Singapore Conclusions
For me seeing the light show and visiting the observation deck were one of the must-sees to do in Singapore.
