Sampan Ride at Marina Bay Sands

In Venice, you have the famous gondola and if you have been to the Venetian Macau, you must have seen or enjoyed the famous gondola ride whereby the singing gondolier sweeps you down the vibrant Grand Canal.

At Marina Bay Sands Singapore, they have something similar called the Sampan Ride. The sampan, a beautifully crafted Chinese wooden boat, may not be as classy as the gondola, but it will take you along the Canal, the Shoppes and around the Rain Oculus (Ned Kahn’s 22-meter diameter acrylic bowl set on a 90-ton steel structure that releases more than 22,000 liters of water per minute, from two storeys above).

Btw, please don’t ask the sampan man to sing because it’s outside his job scope :).
