When the sun fades away, the lights shine bright in Singapore! The most popular light shows in Singapore are right next to each other yet both of them are so significantly different. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel and the Gardens by the Bay cannot be missed when you find yourself in Singapore!
Marina Bay Sands Wonder Full
Marina Bay Sands hosts Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show aptly named ‘Wonder Full’. The spectacular 15 minuet show is actually two shows in one. To watch the light show, you have to watch from across the bay and to watch the water show, you must be at the Marina Bay Sands. Both shows start at the same time but don’t worry, there are multiple shows every night of the week. I would suggest watching the light show at 8 pm from across the bay near the Merlion. The lights and lasers shine bright from the Marina Bay Sands building and music can be heard all around the bay! Tip: if you watch from the bridge above, you wont have to bother with all of the tourist! Then, after the light show, walk to The Marina Bay Sands and watch the water show at 9:30 pm. Both shows are free and absolutely incredible!
Gardens By The Bay OCBC Garden Rhapsody
Following a tip from the hostel, we chose to visit Gardens by the Bay at night to see the OCBC Garden Rhapsody, a light and audio show with the Super Trees . Although this expansive park is impressive during the day, the light show really gives it the Avatar feeling when the structures light up in a rhapsody of colors to the sound of music that fills the entire park. The show begins nightly at 7:45pm and 8:45pm.
