A day in Singapore…the people zoo

Part way along my trip through Asia I spent 3 days in Singapore.  The people zoo!  Its a huge concrete playground but very interesting at the same time.  I took a walk one day with a friend that I met at  My hostel to Marina Bay, and we took these photos.

China Town

First stop, China Town ! Not like China towns in other Asian cities, but interesting all the same. Its very organised and so crazy as China town in Penang, or Kuala Lumpa.

Chinese Lanterns

So many Chinese Lanterns

First stop of course in the food court where you can get just about any type of Chinese for for between $3-$4, Singapore dollars.

This strange looking structure is actually a museum.

We found an open air free concert at this stage on the waterfront in Marina Bay. The music was amazing complemented by an insane drummer

The Marina Bay Light Show is on of the most spectacular things i’ve seen in the world.  Lasers and a projection of the story of life onto a screen of spray and mist in front of the shopping centre.  We watched it from the shopping centre at 8 30 and then again from a distance at the other side of the bay at 9 30 so we could see the laser display from a distance.  Just stunning and I recommend for anyone visiting Singapore to witness this show.

Each day there’s a light show on the waterfront. They project a movie with music onto a screen of spray in front of the shopping centre.

And from the top of the Marina Sands Building there is an incredible Laser show to compliment the lights show and music
