Business Traveler (USA) - - 4 HOURS -

Just com­ing off the cel­e­bra­tion of 50 years of in­de­pen­dence in 2015, Sin­ga­pore is look­ing more im­pres­sive than ever. With its three soar­ing tow­ers strad­dled by a gi­ant ship, ar­chi­tect Moshe Safdie’s Ma­rina Bay Sands ho­tel has re­de­fined the city sky­line.

Sadly, only ho­tel res­i­dents can use the daz­zling rooftop in­fin­ity pool, but there are plenty of other rea­sons to swing by, even if you haven’t booked a room.

Ex­quis­ite views can be had from the Sky­park ob­ser­va­tion deck and Ku De Ta lounge 57 sto­ries up, while the lobby fea­tures sev­eral fan­tas­tic art pieces, such as Sol Le Witt’s de­light­fully col­or­ful Wall Draw­ing #917,“Arcs and Cir­cles,”mounted be­hind re­cep­tion in Tower One.

The ad­join­ing Shoppes at Ma­rina Bay Sands – not to men­tion the casino – beg a longer visit.
