is a dazzling country. There is much to do, but this is my most pressing recommendation. It almost broke the budget for us poor travelers, but who can say no to unlimited cheese and chocolate buffet and an exclusive dip in a pool on top of a skyscraper?
On top of the famous Marina Bay Sands hotel
there is an infinity pool that overlooks the entire city. It used to be open to the public, but now it is only open to those who stay in the hotel. Fortunately (as our local friends and guides, Channing and Spencer, pointed out to us) there is a loop hole.
If you reserve a spot at the cheese and chocolate buffet
, you can be admitted into
the pool area where you can swim before or after your appointment. It isn’t
technically approved, but no one seemed to upset by us. I recommend swimming
before, since you should be consuming half a dozen plates of amazingness.
Since it is on the 59th floor, there are 59 different kinds of chocolate and 59 different kinds of cheese. It is absolutely worth it. Here is a short video of what you can expect to see at the buffet and what the infinity pool looks like (ignore Austin’s slightly murderous sounding comment, haha):
