SG Day 1: Marina Bay

Four our first day in Singapore, our first stop was Marina Bay. We had an early morning flight, that's why we arrived at Singapore at around 10am. After dropping of our luggages in the hotel, we went straight for the train to Marina Bay. This is where the walking began. Apparently, Singaporeans love to walk. I don't think I've ever walked like that my whole life. Haha! But I enjoyed it since I was able to really see the city's beauty! We spent most of our day just roaming around and discovering Marina Bay.

What's a travel post without airport pictures? :)
This is where their president resides, just right beside our hotel.
It's seeing structures like this that's why I didn't mind walking at all! 
We met up with my mom's friend, Tita Su Lin. She's a local and she acted as our personal tour guide the whole trip! And also as my roller coaster sister! Haha! 
Amazing interior!
Our delicious lunch! I usually don't eat shrimp or other seafoods except for tempura but because it's beautifully plated, I willingly ate it that time! 
Gondola rides inside the mall! The canal leads to the Rain Oculus, where there is water coming out from an inverted dome producing a twirling waterfall effect. 
Inside the mall was also the casino, which is billed as the world's most expensive stand alone casino. 
This picture doesn't even encapsulate how huge the mall is!
Some of the high end shops
The Ferrari display that you're not allowed to take a picture of when inside the store, but I seriously don't mind, since taking it's picture from the outside is so much better! Haha! 

The top most floor of the mall leads to a rooftop where you can see a beautiful view of the city! At the side is also Louis Vuitton's flagship store called the Island Mansion.

The Helix Bridge! 
On our way to Gardens by the Bay. I have a thing for long escalator rides!
On our way to Gardens by the Way, we saw the perfect view of Marina Bay Sands.
Singapore Flyer!
View of the Skywalk and Gardens by the Bay, where we were headed. It's absolutely breathtaking that's why I'm doing a different blog post for it!

This for now! :)

Love, Paola xx
