A light and water show in Singapore

Up-close on the Event Plaza

For the closest views of Spectra and its futuristic art projections beamed onto sprays of water, make for the Event Plaza on the first floor of The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands. This 15-minute show happens twice-nightly (or thrice-nightly from Fridays to Saturdays), and is set to a synchronised soundtrack by award-winning Singaporean producer, Kenn C. The show replaces Wonder Full, which ran from 2011 to mid-2017.

Catching Spectra from the waters of the Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade needn’t be a far-off dream. Hop on a river cruise or laser show cruise – we recommend the 7.30pm slot – for prime views of the light and water show when it commences at 8pm. The cruises also traverse Boat Quay, Clarke Quay and the rest of Marina Bay, so have your cameras ready for some picture-perfect snapshots of Singapore’s skyline.

If you’d rather catch Spectra with Marina Bay Sands in the backdrop, try watching the light and water show from the Merlion Park just opposite. Spectra’s just as much a thing of wonder from afar, framed by 180-degree views of the shining city. The only catch: you’ll miss out on the art projections and accompanying soundtrack that complete the show.
