We are used to taking a 2-hour flight from Macau, where we are currently living, to the Philippines, our home country.  The longest flight that we had was a four-hour flight to Thailand.  And even that, is like a I-seat-finish-one-book-and-voila-we-are-here flight.  Long distance flight is not something we are accustomed to.  Not until we made our trip to the United States.

One of the highlights of our vacation in Singapore was our stay at Marina Bay Sands.  Since its inception in 2010, the hotel has been one of the most frequented tourist spots in Singapore.  Like its counterpart in Macao, the Venetian Hotel, Marina Bay Sands is an integrated resort hotel.  The hotel has a casino, shopping centre, convention centre, and of course, its pride, the Infinity Pool.    The Infinity Pool at Marina Bay Sands has proven itself worthy to be on the same level as Sentosa, Merlion, and Universal Studios when talking about the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore.
