Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, Apple is opening yet another retail store in our region but unfortunately, it is still not in Malaysia. Instead, the company has once again chosen Singapore as the location of its new Apple Store in Southeast Asia after the existing Orchard Road and Changi Jewel stores as well as those at Iconsiam and Central World in Bangkok, Thailand.
Despite being its fifth retail outlet in this region and the company’s 512th location, Apple still managed to come out with unique architectural features for the new premise. Located at Marina Bay Sands (MBS), the store is housed in an orb that sits on the waters of the Marina Bay itself and its design was apparently inspired by traditional lanterns.

To visit the store, customers can choose to enter via an outdoor elevated walkway or through the underwater tunnel that connects it with the retail section of MBS. The actual opening date for the new Apple Store MBS has yet to be announced by the company but given how the buzz about it has started to make its way online, it should take place very soon.
Furthermore, the official page for the outlet is already up on Apple Singapore’s website. So, it is really just a matter of time before Apple Store MBS opens to visitors.
