A budget the size of South Carolina’s. A park suspended 650 feet in the air (and large enough to hold four A380 jets). More than 7,000 employees. Singapore’s $5.5 billion Marina Bay Sands (10 Bayfront Ave.; 65/6688-8868; marinabaysands.com; doubles from $284) is set to catapult this tiny island country off Malaysia into the ranks of futuristic, vertigo-inducing cities like Dubai. Designed by U.S.-based Moshe Safdie, the casino hotel is a mini-city that has 2,560 guest rooms and seven restaurants helmed by such renowned chefs as Daniel Boulud, Guy Savoy, and Tetsuya Wakuda. The three-acre SkyPark has a 500-foot infinity pool. The atrium-style casino’s chandelier is made of 132,000 Swarovski crystals. At night, head to the two floating nightclubs—the perfect end to a day in Asia’s eye-popping new playground.
