There are several ways to climb to the top of this iconic Singapore building, according to the budget you want to spend, even though there are no lowcost options.
For those who want the best way, no matter how much it costs, the ideal is to spend the night at the hotel and enjoy the infinity pool (exclusive for guests), and spectacular view of the city.
A slightly less expensive option is to have dinner at one of the several panoramic restaurants on the top floor, the skypark.
The next least expensive option is to go for a drink at KU DE TA which includes a dinning area and a bar / disco area and enjoy the wonderful night views of Singapore.
Finally, the last and most “economic” option is to climb only to the belvedere on the top floor of the hotel (and see the swimming pool by distance). In this case, it´s recommended to go in the late afternoon, , for the night view of the city. Simply amazing…

2- Visit the Gardens by the Bay
