The colorful and loud-theme-song-filled escalator leading up to the Resorts World.
As the sign says it, this is the entrance to the Casino. Those "MRT gates" are categorized into Singaporeans/PR and Foreigners. So as to avoid the situation where a chao ah beng or gold-chained uncle queues behind our precious rich VIP ang moh tourist?
No idea what is a "Casino Entry Levy" and where this big gate leads to... The gate deco reminds me of the coming Chinese New Year though... and why is this the only place where there is a Chinese translation?
Expensive shops line the shopping gallery. Not stuffs that an average Singaporean could afford. But then again, they are not the target audience, so I suppose it doesn't matter.
They do have some neat looking lighting on the ceilings.
These contemporary statues look kinda misplaced in the what looks like ancient Italian themed hotel lobby to me. Maybe fusion?
The restaurant in Hard Rock Cafe Hotel. The staff in Hard Rock Cafe Hotel are the only ones that greeted us with friendly smile. The rest in the rest of Resorts World? They ignored us as if we are not real guests (maybe we looked like we were there to fix the computer?), and one at Hotel Michael told us "This place is not open for the (poor) public yet" sternly.
Photographs are taken using Nokia N97 camera phone, at the Resorts World. Parking rate is S$6 per hour most of the time, but S$1 per hour from 12-2pm, so best time to visit will be your lunch time.
