Marina Bay Sands has become a landmark in Singapore, which is quite a difficult task, considering the competition. When seeing it from a distance, and walking around inside the buildings, you can almost imagine the conversation when the designers asked the investors what they would like to have as their main feature. The answer was probably: Let’s have it all!
And the same thing can be said for the restaurants at the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore. You can have it all.
Amazing light shows, excellent shops, and even a water canal with operational gondolas…Everything at the Shoppes is designed to be an awe-inspiring sight, so no wonder that the restaurants are a unique experience.
You can choose from the most exquisite French cuisine, through modern fusion food, all the way to the excellent street food. There is an urban myth that a man walked out hungry from the Shoppes, but no one really believes in it.
