Suntec City and Esplanade Theatre, Singapore

Got to travel to Suntec City and Esplanade Theatre! Suntec City is not as good as the malls in Orchard Road but still big though. Suntec City is surrounded by a number of malls like Raffles City, Marina Square, Esplanade Mall and others. Every building is interconnected underground so it's very convenient to transfer from one mall to the other. 
Suntec City's Fountain of Wealth
At the center of Suntec Towers is the Fountain of Wealth. Which Singapore is proud to have. It is the world's largest fountain according to the Guinness book of world records. I didn't actually see it working that day but it's still huge. 

At the center of the fountain they say you can make a wish. You should touch the water with your right hand and circle the center fountain 3 times. Which I did and wish for more wealth.

DUCK Attraction in Suntec
DUCK Tours Amphibious Truck
While we were walking around Suntec I saw an amphibious truck. It was DUCK tours. Wasn't able to ride it because the ride takes around 60 minutes and usually by reservation. Ticket prices is S$33 for adults and S$17 for children. For more information visit DUCKtours official website.

Malls Near Suntec City 
After roaming Suntec City we decided to go to Esplanade Mall, which is within Esplanade Theatre. We passed through the basement passages of Suntec, Raffles and Marina Square before getting to Esplanade. Arriving there we were disappointed. After a long walk to Esplanade mall we just saw restaurants. There's nothing to shop in Esplanade mall. But you still have to go there. The view at the back of the mall is great. You'll have the best view of Marina Bay Sands and a nice view of Singapore skyline.
