Singapore isn’t lacking in breathtaking views, but the opening of ION Sky added another -- and one of the best -- to the city. Located 56 floors above Orchard Road, ION Sky is home to a 360-degree observation platform, complete with telescopes, a cloudspotting area run by the Cloud Appreciation Society and Salt, a bar and grill with magnificent views of the city.
Upon entering the ION Art gallery on the building’s fourth level, you’ll be whisked to the top on a high-speed elevator. Once there, you’re welcome to enjoy the views out the windows, but the real stars are the BEHOLD telescope viewing platforms. These state-of-the art telescopes not only give you a closeup look of the city below, they give you a glimpse at what Singapore was like in the past through augmented reality technology, a feature that sets ION Sky apart from any other Singapore view point.
