Thread: Orchard / Marina lightings

  1. #1

    Default Orchard / Marina lightings

    Hi to all

    I was planning to go down Orchard / Marina area this Sunday at about 4 - 5 am to take pics of the building and decorations (to avoid crowd).

    I need to know do the buildings switch off their decoration / lightings at certain times or they are left turn-on throughout the night???

    Hopefully someone can let me know, else my effort of going down is not wasted.

    Thanks

    Not really sure now but from my previous experience, at 4-5 am the light will not be on.

    4-5pm still have sunlight so the lights will not be on.
    To playsafe, go at 8pm.

    Very high chance it will be on unless that day the power supply kena cut off.

    Oh, I'm not too sure about the timing.
    Maybe can call Singapore Tourism Board to ask?

    Guess that I will bring my gears along this Sunday morning, if the buildings decorations are switch-off then will head down to Geyland for supper. Or if I am lucky, I may be able to take some "interesting" photos while in Geyland.
