The Singapore Night Festival 2018 (SNF2018) is now on at the Bras Basah.Bugis Precinct till Sunday, 25 August. One highlight of the annual Festival that never fails to bring out the crowds are the Night Lights, different light installations set up around the arts district.
This year, Night Lights features more than 15 light installations around the arts precinct. These can be found spread out between Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station and City Hall MRT Station. This can also mean considerable walking from one installation to another.
For those who don’t necessarily wish to spend the entire evening walking around the entire Bras Basah.Bugis precinct looking at the light sculptures, we have put together this suggested walking trail to take in five highlights of SNF2018’s Night Lights installations.
Night Lights Highlights-only Trail
Installation 1: Orbit (Starting Point)
Located at the Dhoby Ghaut Green, above the MRT Station, Orbit by LiteWerkz X 3M features a collection of transparent spheres representing the planets which festival-goers can interact with. Give them a twirl to light them up.

Installation 2: Ember Rain
Head over to nearby Cathay Green where Starlight Academy’s Ember Rain can be found. Saddle up on a bicycle and pedal away to generate sparks in a “cauldron” above.
Installation 3: The Leap of Faith
From Cathay Green, cross the road to The Cathay building. At this interactive light installation, you can hop from pad to pad on the ever-colour-changing art installation. There are no fixed paths and each person creates his or her own journey and experience.
Installation 4: Odyssey
Take a walk down to Singapore Art Museum to view the 3D projection mapping show, Odyssey on its façade.
If you are at the Singapore Night Festival 2018 on 17, 18, 23, 24 and 25 August, you may also wish to pay a visit to the Imaginarium exhibition at SAM at 8Q.
Installation 5: Aquatic Dream (End Point)
Cross over SMU Green to National Museum of Singapore’s Lawn to view Aquatic Dream. This light installation reveals a surreal interpretation of life underwater.
You can end your walk around the Night Festival with a visit to the National Museum of Singapore, which will be open till late on selected dates.
