There are a few trains that go to Marina Bay Sands. The stop you are looking for is Bayfront, not Marina Bay. As I was staying in Chinatown, I took the blue Downtown line to get there.
There are a few signs to point you to the observation deck. You need to go outside the hotel and to the basement to find the counter to pay for the observation deck. It only takes about 30 seconds to get up to the top with the elevator.
This was a decent clear day so you can see much of the surrounding area.
Below is the view of the pool from the observation deck. Only hotel guests are allowed to the infinity pool and the adjacent rooftop garden.
Other than looking out, there is not much to do on the observation deck and it’ll cost close to $30 US. I’m not exactly sure if its worth it just to go up and see the surrounding area. I would recommend going in the morning so it is not as hot. It was about 90F that day and I only spent about 20 minutes outside before heading in for the air conditioning.
Afterwards, I walked around the mall complex. I was walking around on the weekday so it wasn’t as crowded.
There is a small science museum outside of the mall.
Below is the LV store. There is a giant indoor ice skating rink as well.
