Before getting down to business for Tuesday’s summit, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un has been touring some of Singapore’s most luxurious tourist attractions — including the extravagant Marina Bay Sands resort and hotel, where the local crowd greeted him like a rock star.

At its opening in 2010, Marina Bay Sands was the world’s most expensive stand-alone casino, featuring 500 tables, 1,600 slot machines, and priced at around $6.6 billion USD.

Marina Bay Sands is also home to a luxury 5-star hotel, shopping mall, convention center, museum, two theaters, multiple upscale restaurants, and two floating pavilions. To top it all off, a Skywalk connects its three buildings and features restaurants, an observation deck, and an infinity pool that looks out over Marina Bay.
