At 8 pm, the laser show starts....it is a fantastic display....as good as, if not better than sentosa.
I have seen laser shows in Hong Kong, but the laser show in the fountain of wealth together with water is impossible to forget
The Fountain of Wealth is located in the Suntec City complex, which is a very large area consisting of office buildings, shopping/dining and entertainment centers. The fountain is located in the center of this area, surrounded by the buildings. It is accessible from the street level (where you can sit on nearby park benches to enjoy its beauty) or from the basement of the shopping centers. It is huge and nice to see when it's on, but to me the fountain itself offers little else. If you go to Singapore and looking for shopping experience, definitely check out the Suntec City complex. And while you're there, definitely check out the Fountain of Wealth. But don't go there just for the fountain and expecting to be wowed by it.
We expected it to be a dancing water fountain. It turned out to be just splashing water, slighly better than a broken water main. There were hardly any tourists that night when we visited the fountain.
Suntec City Mall was right next door to our hotel (Pan Pacific) and the Fountain of Wealth is right outside the Mall. There are five buildings surrounding the fountain and they represent the five fingers of the left hand with the shortest being the thumb. This makes it appear as if the fountain were in the left palm of a hand. The fountain itself is enormous and instead of water flowing up and outward, the water here flows down and inward. This symbolizes wealth coming into the hand as oppossed to going out. We got there as the large fountain was on and got to enjoy watching it. It was a bit too big for my camera and since it is subset, I couldn't get far enough away to get all of it in the picture. Once the fountain stopped, there is a smaller fountain in the center that continues to flow. Here, people go and walk counter-clockwise around it putting their hands in to make a wish. I can't remember which but I think women put their left and hand and men put their right, or vise-versa. We did not experience that part as they say you must TRUELY believe you will get your wish in order for it to come true and I'm too much of a skeptic. I was told they have light shows at night as well but we didn't not get a chance to see that. All in all, if you are nearby, it's free, so stop by and take a look.
