Any newcomer to Singapore instantly recognises one of the world’s newest landmarks in the Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The surreal sight of a washed up ship on three columns will bring out your inner Dalí, with Cé La Vie sitting high up on the Captain’s Bridge. By day admire the unbeatable views; by night look out for lightshows and the thousands of twinkling ships out at sea. The curvature of the ship is pretty damn impressive, matched by the ostentatious design and atmosphere of the rooftop bar. Drinks are good, but it’s all about the view. The evenings usher in Singapore’s glitterati for some mile high bottles and model-style hedonism, once the Bermuda short tourist gang have been swiftly evacuated. Arguably the hottest ticket in town when the F1 circus arrives in September, open that little black book for a ticket.
