MY NEW SERIES, "There's No Place Like This"

I have a new series idea! It's titled "There's no place like this" and I will be offering mental vacations of places near and far I didn't even know (or imagined) existed. Today, we go far far away to...Singapore! Hope you enjoy!

150-Meter Outdoor Infinity Pool at the Marina Bay Sands hotel
Luxury hotel, Marina Bay Sands recently opened the doors of its microcosm to the public and has already wowed tourists with its unique and luxurious design.

The Marina Bay Sands hotel is located in Singapore has been designed with one goal in mind, to be the leading business, leisure and entertainment destination in Asia. It holds the title of the most expensive hotel built till this day, as its investment by the Las Vegas Sands Corporation reaches $5 billion. The Marina Bay Sands hotel is a mixed-use integrated resort with 2,560-rooms, three 55-storey towers, a 150-meters infinity pool on top of the towers, an indoor canal, a museum shaped like a lotus flower, the best shopping mall in Asia and world-class celebrity chef restaurants. Furthermore, it includes theatres, an outdoor event plaza, a convention center and a casino with private gaming rooms for premium players.

To put it coarsely, this is like porn for architects; can you even BELIEVE how imaginative these designs are and how much sheer ingenuity was put into each of them? Ayn Rand would be proud.
