When you think of Singapore, you might worry that everything here is pricey.


Don't worry. We got you covered! ;)


How about a recreational place where you can enjoy view for free?
How's that sound?


AWESOME!!!


Well you might want to check out Marina Barrage.

We took public bus here. You can see the entrance at the drop off point. It's very convenient.


Walk for about 3 to 5 minutes, then you should see the green walkway toward its rooftop.

On its rooftop, there is a green platform that overlooks spectacular views.

You might want to bring picnic mat, snacks and drinks,
so you can enjoy sit back and chill. :)


It was very relaxing up here, as the breeze swipe through your hair.
Also it's happy to see parents bring their children here for outdoor activities.



The night takes over as soon as you realized.
It's time to go...

Garden Rhapsody @ Supertree Grove

When trees sing.

Supertree Grove, also known as OCBC Skyway,  is one of the landmarks of Gardens by the Bay.
Measuring between 25 and 50 metres tall, Supertrees are designed with large canopies that serve as shade in the day and come alive with an exhilarating display of lights and sounds at night.

It's within walking distance from Marina Barrage to Supertree Grove.
About 10 to 15 minutes.

The garden rhapsody is available every night for free. No entrance ticket require.
All you need is just to show up at the Bay's Supertree Grove and enjoy the music light show.
First show starts at 7.45PM and the second show on 8:45PM


I would recommend to reach there earlier if you wish to secure a nice spot.

Insights from Little Day Out, there are three (3) spots to watch the music light show.


First is from the fringes (sides) of Supertree Grove.
This way, you can get an overview of the trees as they light up.
If you reached there late (just like us), most probably you will get this view.


The next possible spot to watch the show is directly under the Supertrees.
This spot puts you in the centre of the lights and music.
You have to be there early to secure the spot.
Either you crank up your neck, or you can lie flat on your back to look straight up at the lights.
See whether it's comfortable for you.


The last viewing spot is from the OCBC Skywalk (up above).
In this case, you have to buy ticket beforehand to take an elevator up to the Skywalk ahead of the showtime. You will find yourself closer to the dancing lights, which gonna be epic.


The duration of the Garden Rhapsody takes about 15 minutes.
They will change the musical theme every month.
Do check out their official website to find out more details on the current show.


I never watch anything like that before and it was fascinating!
Definitely a great hangout place for cheapskaters! (heh) :D
