About
Singapore's city skyline is most beautiful when night falls and the building lights twinkle, but it becomes even more spectacular when the area surrounding Marina Bay is lit up with various creative light installations for iLight Marina Bay. It makes for a fun evening out for friends and families to enjoy the festival's programmes while taking in the iconic night scene that includes Singapore tourist highlights like the Esplanade, Floating Platform, Helix Bridge, Marina Bay and the Promenade. Viewing the installations is free, though special events have their own fees; be prepared for the crowds and to walk a lot as that is the best way to enjoy the light installations.

Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Fantastic show,well worth a visit. Free entrance if staying in Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Show nightly,check for times locally. Music from 70s and 80s to accompany lights,which was brilliant.

We watched this a couple of times whilst in Singapore, from the two sides of the river, it’s worth doing both sides if you have the time

The show was great and we then just had dinner afterwards, a nice end to a lovely day!

Went to watch the light show after viewing the lights at the gardens. We’ve been spoilt by having seen the fountains at Bellagio Vegas, so weren’t too impressed. And like the gardens the accompanying music wasn’t really our scene. Gret if you haven’t seen similar before!

It really is amazing what you can do with lights, water and buildings. The festival is really lovely and certainly worth a stop off. Along the whole bay there are different installations that are interactive and worth seeing as well.

This festival covers a bigger area from Marina Bay towards Singapore river. Other than light effect, it also has the sound effect.

A well planned art event, great displays of lights and a good walk around the beautiful Marina Bay. It was a pleasant surprise that the weather is nice and cool with the gentle breeze, it made the walk much more enjoyable.

We went to this with our kids after the light show at the Gardens by the Bay. We thought it was pretty speccy and worth seeing, especially as it was free. Worth going to.

The show is free but I still think it is overrated. The lights are beautiful but the music is torture. Guess it is worth seeing if you're in the neighborhood. The queues to leave the venue after the show are really long.

ILight 2016 was excellent.
Then 2017 was good but we did go in the last week and a few display's had stopped working .
This year we went in the first week but the main idea has gone.
The ILight festival of different lighting ideas from around the world has turned into more about food and kids rides.
We didnt even bother to take photos this year.
Bring back the colour of lights and lighting and get rid of the expencive play ground with overprices food.
