SkyPark Singapore and BASE Jumping

In National Geographic: Photo of the Day I shared a photo of Infinity Pool in Singapore. The pool is on top of  the Marina Sands Resort, part of the boat-shaped ‘SkyPark’. It is the world’s most expensive hotel costing over 6 billion US dollars to build. It has 2,560 rooms and 55 storeys.

The views from the SkyPark are unbelievable, though I can’t imagine swimming there as I am afraid of heights. In case you want to visit, and can afford an airline ticket, rooms start at £350 a night, which is currently $550 US dollars.

Obviously, heights are not an issue for these BASE jumpers. BASE is an acronym for the four types of fixed objects from which they jump: Buildings, Antennas, Spans and Earth. Not something I will be trying , but beautiful to watch.
