According to its official website, Marina Bay Sands’ Wonder Full Light and Water Show is Southeast Asia’s largest light and water show.
I watched this show on my 4th night in Singapore. By this time, I had explored much of the city so when I found out about this on TripAdvisor, my colleague and I decided to check it out. It’s a free activity, anyway.
The place was packed, but despite the notice that says show times start at 8 PM, the show did not start until past 9 PM.
To while away time, I roamed around the Promenade to take photos.
Singapore is so pretty at night, don’t you think?
Finally, the show began. Based on the voice-over, this almost 15-minute show was about a drop of water representing the birth of life.
It then showed the important stages of a person’s life such as childhood, adulthood, and old age.
The colorful lights were really nice to look out. The colors were just so vivid and they contrasted nicely against the dark sky.
The water fountains were less impressive, though. I had seen the Dancing Waters of Bellagio when I visited Las Vegas, and this paled in comparison to it.
Wonder Full Light and Water Show is touted as an amazing convergence of light, music, and sound. I was disappointed, however, because the images inside the lights were blurry and the narration was difficult to understand. Honestly, this was even more disappointing than Hong Kong’s A Symphony of Lights.
Though this show is shown nightly, weather permitting, shows and show times are subject to change or cancellation at the discretion of Marina Bay Sands’ management, so do check this out when you happen to see it. I was disappointed, yes, but it’s still something worth seeing if only for seeing the beautiful Singapore skyline at night.
