    Apple's first and only retail store in Singapore opened at the Knightsbridge Mall shopping complex on Orchard Road in 2017. Now, a report says the iPhone maker plans to open two additional stores in the island country later this year.

    The Straits Times reports that one of Apple's new stores will open at Jewel Changi Airport within Singapore's main airport. The tourist destination, slated to open April 17, will feature more than 280 shops amid a five-story terraced garden with a 40-meter-tall waterfall cascading from a vaulted glass roof.


    The other new store is said to open at the Marina Bay Sands resort next to Singapore's central business district. The dome-shaped store will be situated over water, connected to the luxurious resort with a walkway nestled amid palm trees. The site was previously occupied by night club Avalon.

    Both locations look like they will be very unique additions to Apple's chain of over 500 stores around the world, in line with the company's more ambitious store designs in recent years. The report claims the new stores will open in the "coming months," but Apple has yet to announce any grand opening dates.

    Singapore makes America look like a third world country in many ways.

    Singapore is a beautiful city-state. Remarkably clean (harsh laws on littering, and gum is illegal), unusually quiet and empty for a large city (not many vehicles due to costly import taxes, and underground public transportation is world class), breathtaking attractions, and some of the best food I’ve ever had concentrated in one area - both the hawker centers (street food) and the Michelin star restaurants.

    If you have a chance to visit for a few days, do it.

    Maybe start making more of your services available in Singapore as well? News, tv app, Siri support for Apple TV...

    Singapore is a fantastic place. I emigrated here from the UK for a two-year adventure six years ago and I’m still here. One of the best decisions I’ve made.

    The Marina Bay store looks like it’ll be the most interesting Apple Store in a long time.

    I’m a big F1 fan so I mainly know Singapore from the GP race. Boy does their architecture look stunning.

    I've heard so many good things about Singapore, including yours too, that it be on my bucket lists of places to visit. I certainly envy what they have done as well as maintaining it.

    Impressive how Apple opens multi-million dollar stores, but they are not able to design a decent Macbook that actually works.

    Meanwhile Apple builds more mall locations in the US that lack any and all unique architecture.

    I haven't been much to Asia but Singapore and Changi Airport is one of the cleanest, nicest city/airport experiences I've ever had. Hope to go there again!

    That dome/sphere has been the subject of lunchtime conversation as we can see it out of the office window, but unusually nobody had seen any mention of what it was. If you are going to put three Apple stores in a place this small then one at Orchard, one at the airport and one in the bay makes some sense.
    Hope it is one, will be a much shorter walk to get my MacBook Pro repaired .. again.

    Building one at our airport makes sense, I guess, given how many tourists come to Singapore from the neighbouring Asian countries to get new Apple products like iPhones on launch day. Sentosa would also be another tourist hotspot due to the casino located there.

    Both also very out of the way for me.

    My Return key has just started to go faulty. It’s quite an important key.

    Agree, same with Tokyo and Japan in general.

    When I tell people America has a lot of work to do, they can’t understand what I mean.

    I love America, but our infrastructure needs serious work. Our airports are a joke, our roads are incredibly bad in comparison, bridges are crumbling, and our big city skylines don’t hold a candle to those in several major cities worldwide.
