I have to say, the best skylines in the world have to be a match between Singapore, New York (of course NY will always be the superfluous king with its copious collection of architecture), Chicago, Toronto, Shanghai (because of its big three), Sao Paulo (Incredible high rise density), and finally Hong Kong with its immaculate and stupendous juxtapose of skyscrapers climbing steep mountains.

Yes, this one leaves me very disappointed. It's always going to look unfinished to me.

Does that Louis Vuitton store on Singapore's waterfront get enough business? It's in an odd location for a luxury retailer.

Its always flocked by the tourist haha

By the way its linked through underground to Marina bay Sands mall


In fact singapore luxury market is in demand. I cant get the size of my LV shoe in singapore mbs island but i can get one in KLCC. Moreover singapore luxury brands relatively low compared to neighboring countries which is the reason why their business always good
