Spectra at Marina Bay Sands
The great thing about the light and sound show at Marina Bay is that it is visible from both sides of the water. If you are standing in front of the hotel looking towards the city you can hear the music and see the projected images on the water fountains. From the city side, looking towards the hotel, you see not only the water fountains but also a series of lasers which light up Marina Bay Sands and the Art Science Museum.
Easily the most technologically advanced light and sound show in Singapore, we prefer the view from the hotel. Here, bubble machines create a shimmering cloud above your head and you can see the impressive images of Singaporean children projected onto the wall of water. The music is highly emotive, inspired by live orchestral compositions.

Floral Fantasy (answer for 7 Tree Fairies)
OCBC Garden Rhapsody
The stunning forest of giant metal trees at Gardens by the Bay is even more mesmerizing at night when the structures light up in a rhapsody of colors to the sound of music that fills the entire park. Almost 50 speakers are hidden around the park so you experience a surround-sound experience from wherever you stand.
It really is the size of the ‘Super trees’ that make this sound and light performance so impressive, towering above you at up to 50 meters tall. The show lasts almost 15 minutes, and although the voice over can be a little cheesy in points, the culmination of the show, when the trees seem to explode in a firework-like fashion, is excellent.
Show Times: Daily from 7.45 pm and 8.45 pm
