U will need :
1) A stable tripod
*2) WA lens or adapter
3) small aperture for DOF
Thats all I guess...there is 2 rows of tropical palm tree just outside esplande...I find it fun to shoot with long exposure with ppl walking ard...

Yep, use small apertures, f/16+ to get good DoF. Small apertures give you a starry effect on light sources. You'll definitely need a tripod, and a cable release or remote will also come in handy to prevent camera shake from pressing the shutter release. Once you have these, just compose your photo, and shoot

If you asked for "good spots", you are essentially duplicating what the others had seen before. Fine if that's what you want. Personally, I would rather go out there as if I don't know the place at all and interpretate it myself. Something to ponder on.
Same goes for camera settings. There is no absolute right or wrong.
