    For those who want to enjoy the Singapore Grand Prix in style, the Paddock Club is the play to be and to be seen.
    You’d think the Grand Prix is about fast cars, heat and a lot of noise, but for those with deep pockets it can be the most exclusive and indulgent experience. The one area to which is the most exclusive of all: the team pit lanes, where the drivers and staff work over a race weekend. Perfect shots for Instagram stories.
    Someone told me it’s like a theme park for grown-ups who love to drive. In this case, I have to agree. This is the true truth as I say it as it is…

    Wonderful place full of colour and obligatory waving cats - we ate some fab street food and loved strolling the streets taking in the atmosphere, colours and the people!

    We had tickets to Star Island at Marina Bay for New Year countdown. Have experienced New Year in a few countries, this blows everyone out of the water. One and a half hours of fireworks and drone show. You'll see nothing like it. YOU MUST GO.

    It is an annual event looking forward to, however, the lighting are too spread out without any theme. The only enjoyable is the big CAI SHEN and the crowd is well managed. Overall enjoy the walk and light. The flowers are not the good choice as used Chrysanthemum thats for praying… should use rose or tulip..

    Fantastic show,well worth a visit. Free entrance if staying in Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Show nightly,check for times locally. Music from 70s and 80s to accompany lights,which was brilliant.

    We lived in Singapore many years and travel back there from time to time. Singapore is a very special place on earth! Its festivals are magical! Yes, the country is crowded, so know that in advance. However, there are so many venues for the night lights festival and you can see the lights from across the streets as well. Armenian Street was wonderful with various food kiosks. Chijmes was our favorite and despite a wedding reception taking place, there was room to walk around and take photos. It was a highlight of the week!

    Decent place to go for a walk and take nice photos with your lover or love ones. Though one problem it might have is the place is quite crowded.

    Having been to Singapore 3 times and having covered almost all the things to do over about 10 days, in anticipation of our upcoming travels via Singapore I looked to see what was doing for the night before departure.. Well, guess what, for the first time in my life a major event traditional to a particular city was happening and this time, for once, I was going to be there. The Chingay parade. JAN 31 and feb 01 2020 is a Mardi Gras, or Rio de Janiero style carnival parade happening right down near the hottest tourist spot in the city. Beneath the Singapore Flyer massive Ferris wheel, overlooking Merlin Park, the float, the science Center, and Gardens on the bay etc, is a 1000 person at least , performer parade. Preceded by a Carnival during the afternoon, and followed by Chinese New Years festivities. Because I was arranging for a major M&G aboard a departing vessel in the morning from the Marina Bay Pier, I had about 150 names available to me from within a cruise forum , so I arranged for special seating for many of us and this became truly a party night.
    If you are going to Singapore next year in Jan Feb 2021, check out the Chingay website, and buy your tickets on line

    Great evening

    這此旅行,正好遇到這特殊的節慶及遊行,整個小印度區都擠滿了人,還有免費的餐點供人食用.每個主角身上都有很驚人的裝飾,用針刺進皮膚,以支撐裝飾品,或是以針刺穿舌頭及臉頰,實在驚人,能看到這印度的重大節慶,也算是此次旅遊的一大收穫.We met the spacial holiday in little India. It's so amazing. I was so glad I could see the parade.

    This festival be held at Chinatown. This is the best festival in Singapore because you can see many performance, for example: street light up, mass lantern walk, and more. You must visit this festival when you come to Singapore

    Stunning to see what an ambitious, vision focused country can do in less than 60 years. The use of light, encouragement of business, culture of respect is admirable.

    The Stan Chart Marathon is the premier SG running event. It is very well organized and has excellent services for the runners. That said, the course is a bit boring with a big chunk run on Nicol Highway (elevated highway) which is completely devoid of trees/greenery. The last parts are run through East Coast Park which is much greener and more scenic.

    If you've never run in Singapore weather beware: it is hot and extremely humid year round. You will probably not achieve a PR here. It is also not the NY/Boston/London marathon with 1000's of people cheering you on, The vast majority of the run has no spectators at all.

    But it IS a marathon and a well-organized one at that.

    Great to be in Singapore and especially Little India during this celebration. Night time is best to see the lights on the street. Other events are posted, such as parades on certain nights.

    It's a Very different, very new take on Theatre. I recommend that one get the OPEN pass for only $45 and then try to go for some of the main festival's shows. I went for both and it was an experience, indeed.
