Good Day Everyone,
I absolutely love Singapore at night. It looks so beautiful when it’s all lit up and conveys a beauty that just isn’t possible by day. Singapore is also a great place to be if you enjoy photography as it has some very interesting modern architecture and the contrast in its beauty by day versus night means that there’s lots of opportunity to take some amazing photographs.

The other great thing about Singapore is that there is always something going on and right now there are two fantastic events on that, if you can, you should definitely go check out. The first is the i Light Marina Bay (website), which is Asia’s only sustainable light art festival. The theme of this year’s festival is Light+heART and it features 28 innovative and environmentally sustainable light installations from around the world. The participating artists have incorporated recyclable materials and energy efficient lighting in the creation of their pieces.
The festival is a free event located along the Marina Bay Waterfront and as well as the amazing art installations there are a whole host of events and activities running concurrently. These include boat tours, markets, bazaars, skating activities and even Glo-Yoga plus a lot more.
The light festival has two routes and you’d be hard pushed to complete both on the same night as there’s a lot to see. There are three information kiosks dotted along the routes where you can pick up maps and there are information points displaying maps along the route so if you don’t have a map with you, you can see exactly where you are along the route. The festival is on 7th – 30th March 7.30-11pm and is a must see, in my books.
In addition, MOSAIC Music Festival Singapore (website) is currently on (7th-16th March) in and around the Esplanade Theatre which consists of both ticketed and free music presentations covering a range of genres including jazz, soul, pop, electronic and rock. So if you’re in Singapore and looking for some evening entertainment you have a lot to choose from.
I hope you enjoyed the photos above and got a bit of a taste of what we managed to see this weekend :o)
