On Monday, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un visited the luxury Marina Bay Sands resort as part of a tour of Singapore’s attractions.
Marina Bay Sands is a landmark in Singapore, featuring a hotel, casino, museum, shopping mall, and incredible views of the city and the bay.
We stayed at Marina Bay Sands to see if it’s really worth the expensive price tag.
Before getting down to business for Tuesday’s summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been touring some of Singapore’s most luxurious tourist attractions — including the extravagant Marina Bay Sands resort and hotel, where the local crowd greeted him like a rock star.
At its opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands was the world’s most expensive stand-alone casino, featuring 500 tables, 1,600 slot machines, and priced at around $6.6 billion USD.
Marina Bay Sands is also home to a luxury 5-star hotel, shopping mall, convention center, museum, two theaters, multiple upscale restaurants, and two floating pavilions. To top it all off, a Skywalk connects its three buildings and features restaurants, an observation deck, and an infinity pool that looks out over Marina Bay.
I recently got the chance to stay at Marina Bay Sands and experience its best-known attractions. Here’s a look inside:
