Destination: Marina Bay Sands

Have you ever dreamed of exotic vacation?
Have you ever envisioned your destination--the unknown, the fancy and glamorous??
I dream about such destinations all the time!
 A friend recently shared her stunning discovery, and I can't get over it since.
Marina Bay Sands, Singapore.

Open for business since April 2010, this luxury casino resort has anything (beyond!) imaginable for even most sophisticated traveler. A $6B investment has gone far, featuring the most fearless attractions ever built in human history.
The 55-story hotel towers design was inspired by a deck of cards, according to designer Moshe Safdie. There are 2650 rooms in the towers.

    The three towers are connected by a 1 hectare sky terrace on the roof, named Sands Skypark. The SkyPark is home to the world's longest elevated swimming pool with a 146-metre (478 ft) vanishing edge, perched 191 metres above the ground. The SkyPark also boasts rooftop restaurants, nightclubs, lush gardens, hundreds of trees and plants, and a public observatory deck with 360-degree views of the Singapore skyline.

The infinity pool stretches 150 meters, three times the length of an Olympic swimming pool.
Infinity pools are designed to make it seem as though the water extends to the horizon. In reality, the edge of the pool is usually about an inch below the water level. The water therefore spills over the edge into a catchment below, and is then pumped back into the pool.The concept is said to be inspired by rice paddies in Bali, Indonesia.
Marina Bay Sands makes a spectacular travel destination and I hope to reach it soon!
