Two Beautiful New Apple Stores Expected to Open Soon in Singapore

Apple's first and only retail store in Singapore opened at the Knightsbridge Mall shopping complex on Orchard Road in 2017. Now, a report says the iPhone maker plans to open two additional stores in the island country later this year.

The Straits Times reports that one of Apple's new stores will open at Jewel Changi Airport within Singapore's main airport. The tourist destination, slated to open April 17, will feature more than 280 shops amid a five-story terraced garden with a 40-meter-tall waterfall cascading from a vaulted glass roof.


The other new store is said to open at the Marina Bay Sands resort next to Singapore's central business district. The dome-shaped store will be situated over water, connected to the luxurious resort with a walkway nestled amid palm trees. The site was previously occupied by night club Avalon.

Both locations look like they will be very unique additions to Apple's chain of over 500 stores around the world, in line with the company's more ambitious store designs in recent years. The report claims the new stores will open in the "coming months," but Apple has yet to announce any grand opening dates.

Singapore is a beautiful city-state. Remarkably clean (harsh laws on littering, and gum is illegal), unusually quiet and empty for a large city (not many vehicles due to costly import taxes, and underground public transportation is world class), breathtaking attractions, and some of the best food I’ve ever had concentrated in one area - both the hawker centers (street food) and the Michelin star restaurants.

If you have a chance to visit for a few days, do it.

Impressive how Apple opens multi-million dollar stores, but they are not able to design a decent Macbook that actually works.

Meanwhile Apple builds more mall locations in the US that lack any and all unique architecture.
