Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck Admission Ticket

152 reviews
A Singapore landmark, the Marina Bay Sands Skypark hangs poised atop the three towers of the waterfront Marina Bay Sands complex—and offers some of the city’s best views. Gain entry to the Observation Deck on the 57th floor and admire Supertree Grove, Gardens by the Bay, and so much more. Your ticket includes an audio guide, but do be aware that the Infinity Pool is reserved for hotel guests.

This is a more down-to-Earth neighborhood of the city, away from the glitz and opulence of the fancy hotels and shopping malls. More organic, a real urban neighborhood and thus more fun to explore.

The Historic District of Chinatown comprises four distinct sub-districts: Telok Ayer, Kreta Ayer, Bukit Pasoh and Tanjong Pagar. For this review, I will focus only on a self-guided tour of Bukit Pasoh and Kreta Ayer. By taking exit H at Outram MRT station, I started my walk at Bukit Pasoh and the first well known building is 1) Ee Hoe Hean Club at 43 Bukit Pasoh Road. The club was founded in 1895 by a group of Hokkien community leaders for the wealthy Chinese elite. 2) Chin Kang Huay Kuan at 29 Bukit Pasoh Road was established in 1918 by immigrants from southern Fujian, China. Unlike its ornately decorated neighbours. the style here is Modern with straight lines, concrete ledges and mild steel framed windows. 3) Turning into Keong Siak Street, Cundhi Gong at 13 Keong Saik Road was founded in 1928 for the worship of the 18- arm Cundhi Bodhisattva. 4) 17A is the former home for author Charmaine Leung who wrote about her mother growing up in a brothel in 1970s. 5) Standing at 17A and looking towards the Pinnacles at Duxton, one can see the former Eng Aun Tong at 89 Neil Road which was built by Aw Boon Haw in the 1920s as a factory to produce the internationally renowned Tiger Balm. This is one of the few flat roofed buildings from before World War II. On the roof is a six-sided pavilion, a reference to the six sided glass bottle that Tiger Balm is sold in. 6) Sri Layan Sithi Vinayagar Temple at 73 Keong Saik Road was built in 1925 by Nattukkottai Chettiars, a noted money lending community from Tamil Nadu and dedicated to Ganesha, the elephant headed god. 7) Poon Yue Association at 281 New Bridge Road is an interesting building with a hybrid of Neo-Classical and Art Deco styles. Doric Columns frame the 3rd storey balcony. Look out for its unique letter box. 8) Former Majestic Theater at 80 Eu Tong Sen Street was originally a Cantonese opera house built by philanthropist Eu Tong Sen in 1927 for his wife after she was reportedly refused admittance to an opera performance elsewhere. A highlight of this Art Deco building is its decorated façade of hand-painted tiles depicting opera characters and flying dragons. 9) Former Great Southern Hotel at 70 Eu Tong Sen Street was designed by architectural firm Swan & Maclaren and it had the status as the Raffles Hotel of Chinatown. It was popular with high society including celebrities from Hong Kong and China. It was the first Chinese hotel in Singapore to boast a lift service. 10) Along Mosque Street, the refurnished former S.I.T. government quarters at 42 to 50 were built in the 1930s to house Customs workers. Look out for the timber parapet behind each window; on each are two adorable heart-shaped cut outs. 11) Jamae Mosque at 218 South Bridge Road is one of the oldest mosques in Singapore and it was completed in 1835 by the Chulias who hailed from southern India. The most significant feature is its South Indian style front entrance comprising of two minarets flanking a miniature palace façade and it was gazetted in 1974 as a National Monument. Mosque street was named after this mosque. 12) Sri Mariamman Temple at 242 South Bridge Road was established in 1827. It is Singapore’s oldest Hindu temple. This temple gave names to Temple Street and Pagoda Street, and was gazetted as a National Monument in 1973. The Central tower Goputram at the entrance resembles a pagoda. 13) Eu Yan Sang at 267 to 271 South Bridge Road was built in 1910. This is the first Eu Yan Sang outlet in Singapore set up by Eu Tong Sen. The building was designed by Alfred Bidwell from the firm Swan & Maclaren. He was also responsible for the design of the Raffles Hotel and Victoria Memorial Hall. 14) Former Lai Chun Yuen at 25 Trengganu Street was built in 1887. This three-storey former theatre building with unique cantilevering wooden balconies was the centre of entertainment in Kreta Ayer.

Whenever I have overseas visitors come to visit me, I bring them here. Good fun bustling atmosphere. They can pick up their cheap souvenirs and I often take them to a Chinese restaurant which is cheaper than say places like orchard road.

Singapore has so many unique ethnic neighborhoods that you must visit but this was my favorite. We visited multiple times as we ate here, shopped here and visited several of its sites like the temples. For me it had the most to do of the three neighborhoods we visited. Both my wife and I enjoyed shopping here on Pagoda Street. I bought two suits and she found some jewelry. We both enjoyed the temples as well as the restaurants. Enjoy the main sights around Pagoda and the Buddha Tooth Temple but venture off to side streets. You will enjoy yourself.

Good to have a walk around and check out the various shops and sights. There is plenty of food options around especially on the 2nd floor of the market.
