Marina Bay Sands is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Singapore. With many attractions and activities to experience, it can be hard to know what to do when you’re there!

The infinity pool on level 57 is one of the most popular attractions at Marina Bay Sands. It’s an open-air, outdoor pool that features a constantly changing skyline for its backdrop. From here you can get plenty of photos and enjoy views not just over Singapore but also south towards Malaysia and Indonesia!

As it’s located outdoors, make sure to bring a towel or cover up with something light if you plan to lounge in this area during daytime hours. When night falls, however, the infinite pool transforms into a dramatic nighttime destination perfect for evening cocktails while admiring the cityscape below. The only thing better than getting some quality R&R by day? Getting romantic together by night – think moonlight swims!’

The waterfall cascades down the 25-story atrium, spanning across a vast expanse of lush greenery and fountains. Make sure to stop by for an enchanting photo opp!

I have visited Marina Bay Sands on two occasions now – once in Singapore’s tourist season (between Nov–Feb) and again during their ‘low’ season (March). Each time I went was equally amazing with different benefits depending on what you are looking for.

High Season: During high season there is more activity going around than low season so visitors can take advantage of higher capacity attractions such as pool parties etc. The downside? Those same activities make it more crowded which means longer lines, packed pools, and sometimes even feeling like you are in a rave.

Low Season: The upside of visiting Marina Bay Sands during the low season is that there is less activity going on so you never have to worry about waiting for anything! If lines aren’t your thing, this might be worth it to visit when Singapore’s weather can get hot and humid which admittedly I find unbearable sometimes.

High or Low Season? When making the decision between high versus low season, what really matters most is personal preference as both will provide an equally amazing experience at Marina Bay Sands (I promise!) but they just offer different benefits depending on your interests. Personally, I prefer lower crowds because I don’t enjoy feeling claustrophobic and always having something going around me all day long.

Visit the ArtScience Museum

The ArtScience Museum was a highlight of my trip to Singapore. I feel like it’s one thing that has been left out in the travel guides and overlooked by many tourists, but this museum is worth checking out if you’re into art!

This museum is located on level 1 of its own building within MBS. I recommend taking your time to check out all floors because each one has its own unique exhibits and multimedia installations that range from photography, sculptures, kinetic art or even an interactive theater!

The Marina Bay Sands casino is one of the highlight attractions in Singapore. The world’s most iconic hotel, spa and shopping mall all under one roof is a must-visit!

I would recommend going at night to see the lights on the facade as well as enjoy some drinks or dinner at any of their restaurants. I personally enjoyed my time at F&B outlets like Mott32, Lavo & Marquee (the nightclub) which has an exquisite seafood selection with fresh oysters flown from France daily.

As for gaming, this place offers more than just slot machines – there are tons of table games where you can try your luck playing card games such as blackjack or baccarat!
