photo of Marina Bay Sands Casino and Luxury Hotels

The Marina Bay Sands opened in Singapore in 2010. The building is certainly an eye-caching one. It has what looks like an ocean liner spanning 3, 55 story high rise building that each have a luxury hotel. The casino was one of 2 opened in Singapore that quickly surpassed Las Vegas to become the second highest grossing gambling area (Macao is first).

Adjacent to the Marina Bay Sands are: a science museum (in the partial sphere in the photo), an eye ferris wheel (like the London Eye) and a huge new botanical complex – the Gardens by the Bay.
