Apple Marina Bay Sands Opens Its Doors

Apple Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

The newest Apple Store opened Thursday in Singapore. Apple Marina Bay Sands is the company’s first retail location directly on water.

‘Breathtaking’ Apple Marina Bay Sands Now Open

In a tweet, Apple CEO Tim Cook described the new retail location as “breathtaking.” Pictures from the store make it hard to disagree!

The store will normally be open between noon and 8 PM local time. However, customers were welcomed in from 10 AM on opening day. As with all Apple Stores, extra COVID-19 safety measures are currently in place. Even those of us not in Singapore can celebrate the opening with wallpaper for the Mac, iPhone, and iPad that Apple has made it available. It incorporates the outlets dome into an Apple logo.

  • Around 20 years ago I was walking around Singapore malls with the amazing Mac Users Group Singapore demonstrating the clamshell iBook. We had meetings at various venues such as the Apple factory (where the Bondi iMac was made), Orchard Road Apple stores, and even Microsoft’s headquarters. At that time OS 9 was transitioning to OSX, then a few years later along came the iPod. We created a hyperlinked  QuickTime VR pano of the Bay too. 20 years later and Apple has its first store on water. Amazing. I can’t wait to visit … when we are allowed to travel freely. Singapore is a terrific place.
