In order to attract more visitors, Singapore, which always gives a conservative impression, has spent 180 billion Singapore dollars to build a 55-storey hotel that contains the world's highest sky garden and outdoor swimming pool and will open on June 23..

According to Taiwan media, the entertainment center stretches over the Singapore Marina Bay. It consists of three 55-storey buildings and covers a total of 20.6 hectares.

There are 2,500 rooms and a casino in the entertainment center. The most special part is the sky garden on the top of the building, which can provide enough space for four A380 airplanes. The 1.2 million square foot world class exhibition and convention hall and the world's highest outdoor swimming pool are also the attractions for visitors.

However, the visitors should pay about 9,000 Singapore dollars per night for a room.
