As part of Sentosa Development Corporation’s multi-pronged approach to strengthen the island’s position as a night destination through more novel, after-dusk leisure experiences for locals and tourists, Magical Shores at Siloso aims to make the island fresh and exciting for guests to visit over and over again.  

Watch as Siloso Beach transforms through a multi-sensory, interactive light and sound show. Be in awe together with your family as you witness striking visual effects projected on the sand, inspired by diverse elements ranging from water flow to marine creatures. The spectacle will feature vivid light, sound, and mist effects across the 400-metre stretch of Siloso Beach. You’ll get to help create the art too!

In the show, you will be transported to an ethereal land with nature’s enchanting song and dance accompanying every movement. It is comprised of four acts with two islets taking centre stage across the waters. As part of the four acts, guests will also be treated to a three-minute flourish of multi-coloured projections lighting up the night sky every 15 minutes. 

Date: From 23 January 2020
Time: 7:30pm to 10:30 pm

It isn’t too late to usher in the Year of the Rat and make the celebration more unique! Head over to Singapore’s wildlife parks. Rats are known to have exceptional traits that make them one of the most successful animals on Earth and can even be useful to humans. For example, Gambian pouched rats have a strong sense of smell and can be trained to detect landmines and patients suffering from tuberculosis. By visiting Wildlife Reserves, you and your kids can get to learn more about them through a host of educational and craft activities. 

Some things to look forward to include meeting the agouti, a rodent from the rainforests of Central and South America, at River Safari. Besides the rodents, look out for other wild residents like the orangutan and Malayan tapir as they receive festive treats. There will also be lion dance performances, mascot appearances, and Zoodiac Predictions for the Year of the Rat. 

Date: Until 8 February 2020
Time: Varies per activity
Fee: Varies per activity; local residents can enjoy 20% savings when you purchase tickets online
