Undoubtedly one of the best views of the city skyline is visible from the top floors of (none other than) Marina Bay Sands Hotel. The Sky located on the 57th floor is your go-to place if you’re a sucker for dazzling city views, especially in the evenings. And with the amazing Asian flavours reconstructed in French style under celebrity chef, Justin Quek, the food’s as good as the view.

Legend has it that Singapore’s first group of immigrants used this particular spot as their landing point and hung red lanterns to guide fellow seafarers, and this is what the restaurant is named after.
