How to Experience iLight Marina Bay in Singapore

How to Experience iLight Marina Bay in Singapore

iLight Marina Bay, Asia’s only sustainable light art festival, takes place at the Marina Bay waterfront in Singapore, illuminating the area with 20 light art installations designed by artists from around the world. Here’s what you need to know about attending this dazzling free event.

When to Go

Founded in 2010, iLight Marina Bay is now an annual festival in Singapore, lighting up the riverfront throughout much of the month of March. Due to the nature of the event, it’s best to see the light installations after dark.

What You’ll See

At the core of the festival are 20 illuminated art installations by Singaporean and international artists, all using eco-friendly materials like recycled bottles and energy-saving lighting. The event’s theme changes from year to year, but past installations often include audio-visual projections on major Singapore landmarks (like the ArtScience Museum and Merlion Park), interactive art pieces that respond to motion and physical touch, optical illusions, and giant 3D-printed installations. 

How to Go

Many city night tours include a cruise down the Singapore River, where you can learn about iLight from your guide as you pass the city’s glowing sights with unobstructed views. You can also combine a night cruise with a traditional dinner in Chinatown, or opt for a tour that includes stops at the Marina Bay Sands SkyPark Observation Deck and Gardens by the Bay to catch the synchronized light and music show from multiple angles. For a view from above, hop aboard the 541-foot-tall (165-meter-tall) Singapore Flyer observation wheel.
