The Marina Bay Sands complex is HUGE, we check out the miles of shopping arcades first which are all very impressive. but we doubt that any are actually making any profits at this stage. Try to get in to the Casino to try our luck and cover the cost of the holiday, but are turned back as we do not have our passports with us to prove that we are foreigners, as if I need a passport to prove that. If I was a Singapore National I could get in by paying a fee of S$100, what sort of Casino charges to get in???
Eventually we find the lift that takes you up to the Skydeck roof for a cost of S$16, but the views and the experience is well worth the cost
Head on back to the Hotel, but stop for a little retail therapy on the way, packed up, stored our bags with the concierge, Julie goes shopping, Richard back up to the Club Lounge to pay the bill and wait until it is time to head to the airport for our 10:20pm flight
Check in at airport was a bit different, Business Class Passengers are ushered into a separate lounge area to sit down with your personal check-in manager where your luggage is attended to.
The Qantas Lounge was a different and was very down market in style, service and quality, maybe we have just be spoilt too much in the last 12 days.
Easy flight home, 6 hours 30 min, good feed, good movie, good sleep and we are soon flying over Yorke Peninsular and landed in good old Adelaide
On the flight we think back to the great experiences that we shared over the trip, are we glad we chose Vietnam, definitely yes, would we have changed anything, no, but would we go back again, no. Our thoughts are that China is far more developed and aesthetically beautiful with loads more history.
Was it a 60th birthday to remember, no question about it.
