    Marina Bay Sands & Shoppes

    After we checked out of the hotel at 11, we had to return our access to the Infinitely Pool. The hotel held our luggage while we explored the area. We took a Singapore River Cruise that was a little less than thrilling. Then we walked through the shops, including “Ferrari Junior” where the 50% discount rack had t-shirts for C starting at $169. Ha! Most places in the shops were Brand Names I couldn’t pronounce, let alone afford: Cartier, Louis Vuitton (who has their own FLOATING store connected), Jimmy Choo, Armani, just to name a few. This shopping mall was pretty crazy, it also had a man made River “flowing” through where you could catch a ride on a Venice style gondola. We ate some more Hainanese Chicken Rice at the food court, which of course wasn’t as good as the Michelin Star hawker ‘stall’ nor was it as cheap. We had Mango Tango Mango Ice for dessert. M was really keen to try these pay as you go motor scooters but we couldn’t download the apps so ultimately couldn’t ride. We wandered over to the Gardens By The Bay but just sat as it we were too tired to wander further. Knowing there was a rooftop pool and things to do a Changi Airport, we got to the airport about 5pm for our 9:10pm flight. It was quite cool to sit in the pool and have the planes take off around you. We grabbed some quick dinner and headed to the gate. Security that scans your bags is dedicated to each gate, this was a first for me.Read more
