Can you believe that it’s been a decade since Marina Bay Sands first opened its doors to us and travellers from all over the world? That was the first thought that crossed our mind when we learnt that a limited-edition coffee-table book has been published to mark the venue’s 10th anniversary.
Time flies indeed, but let us turn our attention to this beautifully put-together publication that’s dedicated to celebrating this key milestone. Titled Marina Bay Sands: The Vision, The Evolution, The Future, this 172-pager looks to be not just a visual treat but also an insightful read that will offer the outsider an inside peek at how each different aspect of the integrated resort is being run.
The book takes the reader back to key moments of Marina Bay Sands’ journey, from its early construction years to its progressive openings from 2010 to 2011. At the same time, it also commemorates the legacy of casino magnate and Marina Bay Sands founder, Sheldon G Adelson, who passed away in January this year.
Besides serving commercial functions, the venue is undeniably an attraction unlike any other in Singapore or from around the world, and has definitely played a role in shaping the development of Singapore. This is why it has a story that’s worth telling and capturing in a book for future generations to see.
