When you see pictures of Sigapur, you immediately catch the eye of the spectacular-looking Marina Bay Sands Resort. For us, it looks like one of the most extraordinary hotels in the world.

Marina Bay Sands Resort
After spending the last two nights at the Hotel Carlton we wanted to treat ourselves to at least one night at Marina Bay Sands Resort 🙂
We have already seen this hotel in many reports and articles. However, the prices for the overnight stays are beyond good and evil. Prices usually start at 350 € per night, but at trade fair times they can also be well over 1,000 €! In 2013 we paid 260,- € for one night – and of course without breakfast. For the rooms, which we consider to be relatively normal, this is an extremely high price. But the rooms or the hotel were not the reason for our booking – we really wanted to stay at this hotel, because only in this way you have the opportunity to use the gradiosen infinity pool of the hotel.
The hotel’s infinity pool
The 146-metre infinity pool at Marina Bay Sands Hotel, built on the three 55-storey hotel towers, is truly spectacular and unique!
The detailed travel report to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel and the Infinity Pool in Singapore will be delivered, but we have already uploaded the pictures. If there are any specific questions about the pictures or this travelogue, please post a comment at the end of the post.

Starbucks Global Icon City Mug of SingaporeWe are collecting the Starbucks Mugs from the cities and islands we visit on our travels. Unfortunately, not every city that has a Starbucks store with an own mug. But if the city has an own mug we like to collect them as a souvenir. We only collect city mugs from the "Global Icon Series", which was released in 2008. You can see our complete collection here: Starbucks - Our collection of Mugs from the Global Icon Series
Singapore has several Starbucks stores and also its own nice cup 🙂
