See Singapore’s wings of colour

A remarkable multi-sensory attraction known as the ‘Wings of Time’ remains at the forefront of Singapore’s growing reputation as a state of colourful lights.

Set in an open sea village or Kampung off the island of Sentosa, ‘Wings of Time’ combines water jets, lasers, flame bursts, fireworks and a live cast.

We watched from the beachside open-air gallery, which can hold up to 2,500 people and provides a perfect view.

The open ocean setting creates an extraordinary backdrop to showcase the show in all its colour and glory.

‘Wings of Time’ show is one of the many highlights of Sentosa Island, which is located about half a kilometre south of Singapore’s main population centre.

Sentosa is said to host about 20 million visitors a year, most of whom visit attractions such as Imbiah Lookout; two golf courses; 14 hotels; the restored World War II guns at Fort Siloso; two casinos; the world’s biggest oceanarium; and the theme park, Universal Studios Singapore.

The island also has extensive areas of secondary rainforest and more than three kilometres of white sand beach.

Some of the best views on the island can be found from the 37-metre Sentose Merlion, which boasts two viewing galleries.

Sentosa Island and the ‘Wings of Time’ show can be reached along a short causeway or by using a monorail or the Singapore cable car that runs from Mount Faber across Keppel Harbour to Imbiah Lookout.

When it was opened in 1974, the cable car was the first aerial ropeway system in the world to span a harbour.

A convenient way of catching the cable car to Sentosa Island is to board as it passes through the central area of Singapore known as Harbourfront.
