The world's first floating Apple Store threw open its doors to media for a preview on Tuesday (Sep 8), two days ahead of its official opening. The store – on the edge of Marina Bay Sands – is nestled against the backdrop of the iconic Singapore skyline.

CNA Lifestyle went on a quick tour of the new Apple Store, which opens to the public on Sep 10. It features an all-glass dome structure, which was partly inspired by Rome’s Pantheon. It also boasts Apple’s first underwater boardroom.




Fans who want to visit on opening day on Sep 10 will have to book an appointment, but walk-ins will be accepted from Friday, the day after.
