    We had an absolutely amazing time at the Singapore F1, we booked tickets directly with F1, and although they were issued quite late, they were completely painless to download and add to the Singapore F1 app.

    We managed to get a hotel which was very close indeed, which was more by luck that judgment, and it was a fantastic and reasonably priced hotel... The Peninsula.

    The track itself opened around 2pm each day, and after being there that early on the Friday, we decided to get there later on each of the Saturday and Sunday mainly so we could make use of air conditioning as it was so so hot and humid.

    The facilities at the track were great, a great selection of food, although to be honest, not a lot for vegetarians apart from fries and plain pasta, but it was the same wherever you went in Singapore, I don't think they are into the veggie thing yet.

    We had a Padang combination ticket, we absolutely loved the Stamford and Padang grandstands, the Pitt grandstand not so much.. not least because it involved miles of walking on uneven ground and up and down stairs over bridges... and to be honest, you didn't see a lot either. We ended up watching qualifying on a big screen.

    The weather was very kind to us, but as I say, very hot indeed.

    All the surrounding areas were very accommodating and welcoming to the F1 fans, there wasn't any trouble at all, and we loved the fact that we could visit so many hotels to check out the different teams' cars, etc.

    We saw Culture Club, Groove Armada and Robbie Williams, all of whom were amazing!

    I would certainly recommend every F1 fan tries it at least once!

    Chinese New Year is celebrated throughout the Asian region. It is often called Lunar New Year, as it is celebrated throughout Asia. Lunar New Year is celebrated according to the Lunar calendar. Apart from Singapore, the Lunar New Year is celebrated in Korea and Taiwan. In mainland China, it is celebrated as the Spring Festival. Of course, the Lunar New Year is celebrated in Chinatowns around the world. The method of celebration is similiar -- feasting, exchanging red envelopes and lots of fireworks!

    Great to see the super tree structures in daylight during the day and then lit up at night. They are more impressive at night I’d say and I really enjoyed the evening show. You can see it at 7:45 or 8:45 and be prepared to get there 15 minutes or more ahead to get a good viewing spot. Try to sit/lie facing the largest super tree (the observatory which has windows in it).

    The trees are lit up in time to popular ‘disco music’ (think Saturday night fever, ABBA, Barry White) with various colours and it’s quite mesmerising!

    It’s free and very popular with tourists and locals alike so there is quite a crush getting out (as there’s only one main route out from the gardens into the marina bay shopping centre/hotel).

    As a parent attending Chingay with my two sons, I must say this year's event exceeded our expectations, especially with the addition of interactive floors. We've been to Chingay in the past, enjoying the colorful floats and energetic performances, but the interactive elements truly elevated our experience.

    The interactive floors provided a whole new level of engagement for my sons. They had a blast dancing along with the performers and trying out the interactive games. It was wonderful to see them fully immersed in the festivities, actively participating rather than just watching from the sidelines.

    Aside from the interactive floors, the parade itself was as spectacular as ever. The vibrant floats, dazzling costumes, and diverse cultural showcases kept us entertained throughout the evening. It's always heartwarming to see different cultures coming together to celebrate in such a grand manner.

    Overall, Chingay 2024 was a hit with my family. The addition of interactive floors added an exciting dimension to the event, making it even more enjoyable for attendees of all ages. We'll definitely be back next year, eagerly anticipating what new surprises Chingay has in store for us.

    Short and sweet, this is about an 8 minute ongoing event requiring no planning or tickets and, because it continues for several days on rotation all evening, is never crowded. A quite engrossing display projected onto the walls of the building tells a story about Singapore's coming into being.

    Ah relax at such a height with swimming pool but sorry we are not lucky enough to swim, only people living in Marina bay can swim
    Singapore sight seeing from such a height is great adventure. There are safety measures all around. Human indeed done a great job. We saw our Genting ship cruise from that place.

    Chinese Zodiac in human size, brightly lit lanterns displayed making it fun for us to search for our own zodiac.

    The key figures present and accounted for! Especially the 140 foot long dragon suspended high up in the air as it winds around the Supertrees, whilst the giant God of Fortune smiles indulgently at all of us trying to snap a picture of them both.

    Great variety of food prepared in the many stalls too!! It’s not Singapore if food is missing 😍

    The Forum B1 of Resorts World Sentosa has been transformed into a mesmerizing world of art dedicated to Van Gogh, along there way to the exhibition there are artistic bunnies with the influence of Van Gogh; perfect for taking a wefie/self or two.

    Upon arrival, at the entrance of the exhibition we were greeted with lots of Van Gogh-themed rabbits wearing sunglasses, amidst a huge Starry Night-inspired mural speckled with with sunflowers.

    After getting our tickets verified, we entered a dark alley way filled with self-portrait paintings of Van Gogh on both sides of the entrance. Following a staircase down to a second room, replicas of oil canvas paintings from the 1880s adorned each side of the walls.

    Before entering the exhibition area, we greeted with a the larger-than-life Van Gogh Experience pop up banner stand, decked out in sunflowers. A perfect place for some photos for sure, and waiting in line to get that perfect shot did take some time as lots of people were wanting to do the same.

    Past the sunflowers, we entered the actual exhibition area which houses several different rooms and corners to experience 360-degree digital projections, replicas of life-like paintings, dozens of colourful projections, interesting facts and photo opportunities; complemented by an audio soundtrack.

    Besides the immersive rooms, towards the end of the exhibition, there're other actives such as enjoying a VR headset experience with the artwork which inspired Van Gogh's work with commentary, a cinema screening offering all the facts of Van Gogh and his career on film, and an interactive art studio where you get to color your own art piece which you scan to see your masterpiece on the big screen - perfect for adults and children alike.

    For more details and photos on the experiment so check out my blog.

    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.

    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.

    Mediocre food at restaurant prices.

    The inclusion of the entrance fee is a kick in the nuts for anyone hoping to experience good Singapore food. Food there is generally priced at 10 to 20 dollars but nothing justifies the price.

    Anyone hoping to get the full food experience can head down to Holland village and expect the same range of cuisines, and similar prices at a much higher quality.

    This event doesn't deserve the hype, the only good thing was the live music

    i went there to watch WTA Finals. I got seats behind the baseline and it was perfect view to watch tennis. The place itself is clean, comfortable seats-little space for legroom, and the air conditioner worked perfecty it's so cold.. The snacks sold inside was way overpriced, so I went to the nearby convenience store besides the mall (yes there's a mall besides the stadium). It's easy to reach just use MRT along Circle Line and disembark at STADIUM station (CC6).
