Like the Vatican city and Monaco, Singapore is both a city and a country, located at the southern tip of the Malay Peninsula. Besides the main island of Singapore, it also includes more than 60 surrounding islands. Thanks to its unique geographical advantage, Singapore has rapidly become an important financial, service and shipping center in Asia within a few decades as it guards the Strait of Malacca. the BIGPIXEL team chose Raffles Place as the location to capture a better view of Singapore.
Lock your eyes in the corner of Marina Bay and zoom through the buildings in front of you. You can find the Merlion statue, the symbol of Singapore tourism. Everyone who comes here will choose to take a photo with it. The Merlion's scales, which are said to be made of light-transmitting fiber, are striking and beautiful at night, switching colors. Surrounded by skyscrapers, Marina Bay Sands Hotel, Art and Science Museum and Marina Bay Park, it is a must-see for Singapore.
Turn to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel, a cluster of three hotel buildings topped with a spectacular hanging garden that claims to be the most expensive hotel in the world. Zoom in on the top floor of the hotel and you'll find a huge outdoor pool that is said to be three times the length of the Olympic pool and 198 metres high, making it the largest outdoor pool in the world at that height. Guests can enjoy swimming and frolicking while overlooking Singapore's cityscape.
