Marina Bay Sands Skypark observation deck review

Updated on:

No visit to Singapore is complete without heading up to the breathtaking Marina Bay Sands Skypark. Perched 200 meters above the city on the iconic hotel’s 57th floor, the vast observation deck grants sweeping 360 degree views of Singapore’s skyline and beyond.

Gliding up in the futuristic elevators and taking in the panorama made for an unforgettable experience.

Smooth Ride to the Skypark

After purchasing my ticket online, I quickly passed through security screening and stepped into an express elevator whisking visitors up to the skypark. In under 30 seconds, we soared up 57 floors to the roof. Stepping out, floor-to-ceiling windows revealed we were now floating above the city.

The skypark’s elegant architecture and almost airport-like layout allowed easy public access while still part of a major hotel. I walked straight toward the unmistakable panoramic view ahead.

Breathtaking 360 Degree Views

Walking outside to the skypark’s observation deck, my jaw dropped at the incredible panorama. From 200 meters up, all of Singapore was laid out before my eyes. To the east, cargo ships dotted the sea. Turning south took in Sentosa Island and Sisters Islands framed by the shoreline.

Looking west, the skyline dazzled with the Esplanade’s spiky domes, anchored by the towering CBD skyscrapers just across Marina Bay. Even traveling widely, the sweeping views from the Marina Bay Sands Skypark had to rank among the most stunning I’ve experienced.

Ideal Viewing After Dark

While the daylight views impressed, I recommend visiting the skypark observation deck at sunset or after dark when Singapore dazzles. As night fell, I watched the cityscape ignite in glittering lights reflecting off the water. An almost romantic atmosphere settled over the space.

The skypark stays open until 10pm, making it easy to take in evening views. With live music performances at times adding to the ambiance, this proved the perfect way to conclude my visit.

Must-Visit Singapore Attraction

The incredible panoramas from atop the Marina Bay Sands cemented the Skypark as a must-visit Singapore attraction. This vantage point captures the city’s energy and offers photo opportunities found nowhere else. I easily could have lingered for hours.
