One thing for sure about Singapore is they really know how to put on a show. Multiple free shows a night. At a world class level. I might even suggest they are the leaders.
Our visitors arrived later afternoon and we were all hungry. They specifically wanted a Satay and one of the things on their list was Gardens by the bay. Perfect, we will head to Satay by the bay, which we just found a few days ago. We knew it was there but never bothered to look for it.
We of course stayed and watched the Garden Rhapsody at the Supertree Grove. Then it was over to Marina Bay Sands for a wander and then Spectra. We happened to take so long walking from Marina Bay Sands to the Merlion – which happened to be under renovation much to everyone’s disappointment. I think I knew about it but had forgotten. But we took so long that we could catch the 10pm show of Spectra from the other side of the bay.
The best thing about this side is you see all the building projections. The water display has some great things best viewed from a distance but for the fountains up close is best. We were in the splash zone, right at the front so didn’t take the close photos but I really love the lasers and buildings so I did enjoy this show.
At 10:15 my aunt says – oh wow, is that it?? I said yeah, it has been a whole 15 minutes and she was just amazed at how quickly the time went. TW was almost asleep and had no interest. It was getting pretty late.
We headed home via the Esplanade theatres so that we would walk past the underground art installation. Another free and interesting thing to do but also the easy way to cross the road and get back to Suntec.
I love living in Singapore so much and even after just one night, our visitors can see why.
