Visiting The Pod

The lady seated near the entrance of the elevator asked me, “Going to The Pod?”

I nodded my head and smiled. She swiped a card on something like a card reader and the elevator opened. “Press 16,” she said.

In a few seconds I was already going out of the elevator. And, lo and behold, I found myself in a room with a panoramic view of the island of Singapore and its outlying islands.

I immediately took out my camera and reached for Guyito from my bag. Someone I thought as a library staff approached me. “On clear days, you can see Malaysia and Indonesia from here,” he told me while pointing to the glass panels.

The Pod is an enclosed space on the 16th floor of the Singapore National Library. It was built on the side of the building that faces the sea, offering a spectacular view of the whole city, including the Marina Bay, Central Business district, and Orchard Road.

Unfortunately, The Pod is not open to the public as a viewing gallery. Only those who attend functions and events held there are allowed access.
