Marina Bay Sands
Inside, the mall is huge, stretching along the water, with 93,000 square meters (1 million square feet) of retail space and over 300 shops and restaurants.
Inside the mall
Walkways lead onto the roof of the mall, with its own paths, gardens, and great views of the city.
On top of the mall
We follow the signs to the food court where we have a hard time choosing our lunch. There are so many options and we settle on a plate of 3 Mix Duck and a Beef Salad, which cooks on the hot plate in which it is served.

After lunch, we wander over to the Gardens by the Bay, a 101 hectare (250 acre) nature park featuring the largest glass greenhouse in the world and a grove of Supertrees, metal trees ranging from 25 to 50 meters (82 feet to 164 feet) in height with an elevated walkway connecting the trees.
Scattered around the park are displays of petrified wood, thousands of years old.
Leaving Marina Bay, we pass through more gardens and head across the pedestrian bridges to the other side of the bay
