Take a trip down to Taylor’s discography and walk around the stunning trail installations across Marina Bay Sands. Channel your favorite era—from Speak Now, Red, Reputation, to Midnights and strike a pose, imitating Taylor’s version. The trail is open from 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. 

There’s also a pop-up store in Sands Expo & Convention Centre for your merch needs like vinyl or apparel. Note that they require you to register in advance and bring your own reusable bag. See the map here. 

While you’re in the area, cap off the day and watch the stunning 14-minute water and light show, especially curated to Taylor’s hit songs such as Cruel Summer, You Belong With Me, Shake It Off, and Style all in Taylor’s version. If you weren’t able to register to have access to the Lower Boardwalk at the Event Plaza, you can still watch the show for free from the Waterfront Promenade. Save this map for guidance.  

Note that the show will be every 8 p.m. and 9 p.m. until March 7.
