‘Architectural marvel’, hotel in Singapore
A Google reverse image search shows that the building is called the Marina Bay Sands and is in Singapore, in southeast Asia.
According to the building’s website, this “architectural marvel” is popular for its “infinity” swimming pool on the 57th floor, and is surrounded by 12,000 square metres of parkland.
The building includes a hotel, restaurants, bars, 250 trees and an observation deck, from which visitors can view the city skyline.
According to US magazine Forbes, Marina Bay Sands was the hotel in the world most often posted about on Instagram in 2017.
