Marina Bay Sands’ showcased Beckham’s time in Singapore through their “It All Starts Here” video series on all that the hotel and the city have to offer.

Travel like Beckham and stay at Marina Bay Sands during your own trip to the Garden City.

Singapore is known as the Garden City for good reason. Even in the condensed city that features building after building, they are known for their emphasis on nature through meticulous urban planning.

To complete their goal of becoming the world’s greenest city, plants are everywhere – from raised beds and even verticle beds. By staying at Marina Bay Sands, guests can enjoy even more greenery as the hotel is just 15 minutes away from a rainforest.

“I’ve been coming to Singapore for so many years and I’ve never seen this part of Singapore,” Beckham said as he walked through the rainforest.

Singapore and especially Marina Bay Sands are also known for incredible food.

Beckham joined FoodShow host Aun Koh to visit a wet market to see where the produce comes from and try some of the best foods Singapore has to offer.

They were able to taste street food and understand what dishes Marina Bay Sands’ food is inspired by. Some of the best Laksa, a spicy noodle soup, can be found at Marina Bay Sands’ restaurant, Spago.

“This is one of the best hotels in the world, but they’re really keeping to the tradition of what Singapore is all about and that’s why it’s so authentic in what we do,” Beckham commented.
