With three towers of hospitality, casino, food, skating and theatre, deciding what to do in Marina Bay Sands is like choosing your favourite flavour from a bag full of mouth watering chocolates.
To get the most of your trip and help you uncover the best from an amazing selection of entertainment, e-Travel Blackboard has selected the top three gender and age neutral things you MUST try next time you visit the shopping, theatre, accommodation and MICE complex.
Male or female, young or even younger, the first thing you MUST do after checking into Marina Bay Sands and ditching your bags in the gorgeous suites is wash away the jet lag with a massage, hair treatment or facial at Salon 360.
Using world adored cosmetic product, Lancôme, Salon 360 is the one-stop beauty heaven for men and women looking to live and look like a celebrity for a day or even ease the muscles after a long flight or a day of shopping.
Sitting in the centre of the Canal Level and offering indulgences ranging from facials to body treatments, the beauty palace’s signature product is the 360-Degree Spa Package.
195 minutes of relaxation and hair care for only S$360.
Moved into a private cocoon-like studio, Salon 360 kicks off the relaxation with a 60 minute Lancôme Facial Treatment and a 45 minute Body Massage.
Setting the comfort-mood with lights reflecting the various treatments, soft sounds and aroma therapy, beauticians commence treatment with a full body massage designed to ease muscle tension, relax the body and restore inner calm.
As the client reaches a meditation-like state, a gentle cleanse and exfoliation commences on the skin before a relaxing Shiatsu facial massage.
Applying treatments to soften and repair skin, Salon 360 supports cream products with the application of micro-circulation and half a bottle of Genifique Youth Activating Concentrate.
Following skin nourishment, the facial ends with a complimentary touch of makeup to radiate the complexion.
With a unique commitment to bringing the art of hair care to new levels of health, the salon moves into the second phase of the 360 package with a 90 minute Kerastase Hair Spa Treatment.
Equipped with an advanced computer program that scans the surface of your hair and scalp by 500x, beauticians are able to measure the condition of your hair down to the split end to identify appropriate treatment and apply it.
After a quick wash to cleanse the scalp, the salon’s hair specialists administer a deep cleanse and exfoliate to nourish, strengthen and smooth hair.
As the products work their magic, clients receive an arm and neck massage to help ease tension to the hair follicles while they sip on the Salon’s delicious signature teas.
To end the complete 360 package clients are then offered a blow-dry to leave the salon with a bounce in their revitalised hair.
Shaped like a lotus flower, the exterior of the Museum itself is a key indication that the ArtScience Museum isn’t your ordinary museum.
To signify the connection between Art and Science the ‘ten finger’ building is equipped with a round tunnel running down the centre, allowing water to shower in from the top of the building and into a confined pool.
As well as standing as a skylight and funnelling in natural light, the unique centre attraction was designed to recycle rainwater for use in the Museum’s bathrooms.
It’s environmentally conscious attitude also helps to attract contemporary and renowned collections from around the world.
Applying a youthful and local twist, visitors often find themselves wandering the levels for hours, arrested to the informative exhibitions.
For only S28.00 for international adults and $24.00 for Singaporean residents, guests MUST obtain an all-access pass to explore three permanent exhibitions on three floors as well as other limited time collections.
Discussing the Titanic exhibition, Museum’s director Tom Zaller explained that the collection was unlike other stories told of the tragic event, because it re-tells the day using objects from the ship.
Meanwhile the Cartier Time Exhibition, running until 12 February this year, features up to 159 pieces dating back to 1874.
While discovering the extensive history behind the watch-making industry, the exhibition also unveils 17 new pieces of the future.
After relaxing and receiving a celebrity style makeover at Salon 360 and checking out the coolest artefacts from around the world at the ArtScience Museum you MUST end your day with a bit of theatre.
The stage and theatre complex located on B1 in Marina Bay Sands plays host to some of the largest shows, including The Lion King and most recently, Wicked.
Using the Australian cast including popular television personality, Bert Newton, Wicked is the inspirational back story to the Wizard of OZ.
Following the ‘Wicked Witch of West’ on her journey from college into most hated being in the Land of Oz, the show will keep consistent tears of laughter and sadness running down your cheeks throughout the duration of the play.Featuring foot tapping catchy tunes from Defying Gravity to the hilarious Popular, the tale of Elphaba (Wicked Witch of the West) and Ga-linda (the Good Witch) is definitely worth the trip down the ‘yellow brick road’.
