In my own opinion, the nighttime is simply a brilliant time to be Visiting Singapore’s Gardens by the Bay and entering the majestic world that is the Christmas Wonderland.
The light’s, the colours, the sounds, it sticks to my memory bank to this very day, and often I love to look back through the photo album and check out the gallery of photos and videos that I took while standing in the middle of the most spectacular light show I have ever witnessed. To me, it is better than a firework display on Australia Day.
The memories often flashback and for a good reason, staring up at the Super-trees with the lights frequently changing into different lively colours, it brought out even more dazzle to the occasion and had the crowds of tourist who had flocked to the gardens in their numbers, at a standstill.
Enjoying the Gardens by the Bay Lights show
With the spectacular light show hovering above, the inspirational music playing through the speakers added extra chills to the show and brought even more to the occasion, it’s the kind of music played that you may have heard in the past form a Home Alone movie.
The surrounding atmosphere with the lights and music was simply a lover’s delight, the ideal scenario with many couples at the gardens clinging to each other’s hands and enjoying the moment under the stars on a perfect Singapore night, the spirit Christmas was undoubtedly alive.
It was a pity I was in Singapore alone for this particular moment because there would have been nothing more beautiful than to witness a magical event like the spectacular lights at Gardens by the Bay with my wife. Not that it spoilt the moment, although, it certainly would have been that little more special with the one you love most by your side. Instead, I had to show her the pictures when I got home.
Take a step along the OCBC Skyway.
Take the elevator and go high up into the Super-trees and enjoy a fantastic walk along the OCBC Skyway. At that moment you are closer to the lights, and the whole area is lit up all around you, whether it is above where you are standing or below you.
In the distance, the city is also a pretty sight in the night sky, with the Sands SkyPark a big hit for all tourist who is vying for the ideal spot to grab that perfect picture of a strong structure that stands enormous in front of you. If that is not enough, you can add the surrounding CBD, the Marina Bay and the Singapore Flyer, that is breathtaking in its dazzling colours, and it is at its best from the OCBC Skyway.
When in Singapore, A Gardens visit is compulsory
Anytime during the day is a particular time to wander the gardens and view the magnificent Super-trees, but the night time, is the best time, as the Singapore night sky is lit up and glorious in its colour, not to mention the buoyant atmosphere that is generated by the visitors to the area who are seeking a great time out. When you are in Singapore, a visit to the Gardens by the Bay will be on the list, make sure you also take a peek during the evening.
