SINGAPORE -- Apple threw open the doors here Thursday to its first-ever Apple Store that sits directly on water, making a long-term bet on the city's power to attract tourists.

Looking like a sphere floating in Marina Bay, the shop offers panoramic views of the waterfront through its mostly glass walls. Below the surface is a so-called boardroom where meetings with corporate clients and developers can be held.
