Now this is what I call a roof top pool!
When I was in the Singapore Pavilion at Shanghai's EXPO, I saw illustrations of what i thought was a vision for the futurel. I was wrong. It was already built. And this week, according to Reuters, the new Sands Casino in Singapore, with a park on top opened its doors. While I am not a fan of casinos, I am a fan of gardens in the sky and so is Moishe Safdie who participated in the design of this one. Unbelievable!
I'm currently in Barcelona, staying at the AC Diplomatic since it advertised itself as having a wonderful roof-top pool with a view of the city. It does, but unfortunately, it pales in comparison with Singapore's new casino hotel.
I suspect Vancouver's new Casino will also pale in comparison. But that's another story.
