Fantastic Foto Friday: Singapore Marina Bay Sands Light & Water Show

Singapore continues to improve upon itself. The laser light show at Marina Bay Sands has been one of my favorite evening events to watch and it has now been taken to a much higher level with the revamped light and water fountain show in front of the Marina Bay Sands Mall. You get a fantastic view of the Singapore Skyline by night and the well choreographed show of water fountains, lights and music is very impressive and should be high on your list of things to see in Singapore.
