After another quick 1 hour flight, we landed back in Singapore at 2.00pm. We had cleared immigration and were walking out with our luggage at 2.10pm – super efficient. We took a luxury hotel shuttle bus to the Marina Bay Sands hotel, which is the hotel with the boat on the top.
As we had arrived at check in time of 3.00pm, the line was very long, but after collecting our keys we rushed up to our room on 39th floor, changed into swim wear and then raced up to 57th floor and the pool. It has an infinity edge, so it appears that you could jump out of the pool to the ground below. It was a little chilly in the pool for Owen and I, so we only stayed long enough for photos!! The kids enjoyed and hour or so of swimming.
A quick change out of wet into dry so we could go to dinner. The Shoppes at Marina Bay is a mall filled with designer, expensive shops. The mall looked quite busy so I guess singapore must be full of rich people with money to burn. There were a few celebrity restaurants and we had chosen Bistro Moderne. Owen had a truffle/short rib burger, Isabelle and Oliver shared a Yankee burger and I had prime rib. Loads of ice cream for dessert. All delicious.
We went back up to the roof after dinner to see the skyline lit up. And from our room we watched an amazing light show against water jets as the kids were getting ready for bed.
Up early so we could get to the airport in time for breakfast. Nice airport with big kids play area. X-ray machines are by gates – what a fantastic idea! No long lines waiting to clear security…. I am amazed that no- one has thought of this before. 5 hour flight back to shanghai, ready for work/ school tomorrow…
