Towering over Singapore's skyline is the Sands Skytower

My youngest was studying it at school and my eldest (who is home schooling) had been studying everything about it, including the building details.

We looked up Helixs and DNA structures that look remarkably like the bridge shape to get there and by the time we arrived there was an excited frenzy that filled the air.

Arriving they were running along shouting out "look we're in a helix - if we're together does that make it a double helix."

Then falling about laughing at their own jokes.

They are building a massive shopping mall in front filled with designer stores (certainly hold on to your purse strings here).

The expense doesn't stop at shopping though. If you are staying at the hotel here - you can enter for free, alas if you are a visitor, you will need to pay to use the elevator to the sky tower. It's rather pricey - around $70 (AUD) for 2 adults and 2 children.

Arriving at the top, a large area of the skytower was off limits - visitors are allowed on the 'tip of the boat'.

Not so for the hotel guests that have free roam of the magnificent pools and gardens.

Look at the tiny specks on the top of this image - they are people!

A recommended visit ? - sure, you're here so why not, you may not get such a chance again. If you are scared of heights - probably not! If you like walking around above a massive ship much higher than the arc - sure. After queasiness subsided, my kids were off to the top of this structure.

Otherwise, well, take a look at the pictures here and decide for yourself. Amazing views, marvellous constructions - definitely an experience!

Hey Thanks Jon
I have another to write up on Raffles soon, which I think you'll like too. Had a great day today with Julia coming out for her Qi Gong healing session. I hope she enjoyed it.
Kind regards
