The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, | Singapore

I took myself to The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands for the first time the other day. Entering the Marina Bay Sands complex, the shopping gallery was overwhelming, From highbrow to humdrum, every category of shop is here, and hey, even if you can't afford Chanel and Gucci and all the others, it's great fun to look! The men’s room was surprisingly clean for a toilet in such a large public complex, and the equipment was very modern unlike what will read about later in other countries, there are helpful concierges and window shopping is niceIt also had the best eatery section on the ground floor with every sort of Asian food imaginable  500ml Yeo's Coconut juice drink,what i know this didn't sell in malaysia.....Please correct me if i'm wrong....hehe The Snap from the bay, right by the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands The view from the bay, right by the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Do Some Posing Sin ;)

River Cruise | Singapore

Took River Bus From Merlion Station To Marina Bay Sands  charges S$3 .... the boat turns around and retraces its route back. Boat tours depart every 20 minutes or so and there is no need to buy tickets in advance. Singapore River Cruise charges S$17 for their 40-minute tour with a discounted price of S$10 for children. They also offer a 60-minute tour for S$22 that goes to Robertson Quay, but the added sights are nothing special. They’ve been cruising the Singapore River since 1987 and their boats are designed to look like traditional ‘bum boats’, but electrically operated for a smooth, silent ride. When I went on this tour the audio commentary was a DVD played at the front of the boat, and from the outdoor seats at the back it wasn’t possible to hear a word of it.
