On my second trip to Singapore, I really only had two goals: to visit my father and to see Marina Bay Sands and the rest of the Singapore skyline on a night where I had my tripod with me. However, I didn’t want my dad to have to follow me around while I set up photo after photo on the waterfront, so we planned a night out that could end with a few photos instead. Plus, going out at night has its benefits in Singapore — everything is still open, but the heat and humidity has died down enough that it takes fifteen minutes to sweat through a shirt instead of five.
The evening started on the Singapore Flyer, which had the most bizarre entryway I’d ever seen to a ferris wheel. We watched the sun go down over Singapore from the top before heading over to the Marina Bay Sands hotel — pictured above — where we were treated to a nighttime laser lightshow as we looked down on the city from the viewing deck of the “boat” that sits atop it. We chose from one of the many restaurants in the foyer for dinner before strolling through the Marina Bay Sands shopping mall (complete with casino and ice rink) and then walking across the Helix bridge, also pictured above. Sadly, by this point, I was feeling a bit knackered, which would explain the fact that I didn’t use my tripod — even though I had it with me! Luckily, the photo still came out pretty well…and I did use the tripod when I got further around the waterfront, so it wasn’t a total waste to carry it around all night!
