Singapore Street Photography – Day 6: Marina Bay


Singapore
Marina Bay Sands

The skydeck on top of the Marina Bay Sands is amazing, with its 150m long swimming pool and the observatory deck, is one of the most impressive building I’ve ever been on top. I’m generally scared of heights but this time the curiosity to be on top of the most expensive hotel property in the modern history overruled my fears and the experience was awesome.

Infinity Hat

I’ve never seen anything like the Infinity Pool before. 150m of curved edge, falling on top of Singapore Skyline. People are swimming at 191m above the street level in the longest elevated pool in the world. The pool is strictly reserved to the Marina Bay Sands Hotel guests so if you want to live this mind blowing experience, you have to reserve a room.

Self Portrait at Infinity Pool

I had two dreams when I landed in Singapore: shooting street portraits in one of the most amazing cities in the world and swimming in the Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands Skypark. I’m very pleased to announce that I made both dreams come true therefore I can board my flight back to Vienna tonight without any major regret about my staying here.

(*) A very special thank you goes to the Marina Bay Sands social media and communication team that invited me to visit the skydeck. I found a very well prepared team with great skills and experience. Check out their blog, twitter account and youtube channel. It was awesome to get such a nice tour of the skypark, the opportunity to ask questions and discover more about this impressive property.

Little India and Arab Street

Today I went to Little India and if I thought that this city had a smaller personal space around people, I have to completely reconsider the theory. In Little India there was no personal space at all and after a while I had to get out and breath some fresh (better say open) air.

Arab Street was awesome because I had the great pleasure to talk and make friends with some of the local carpet sellers. I asked them to pose for me in front fo their shops and the results were great.
