What travellers are saying
- 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!Written 26 September 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- 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!Written 22 January 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This was my first experience of experiencing a multicultural parade. It was wonderfully organised with so many volunteers to guide that one could not get lost in the crowd even if they wanted to. Emergency ponchos were given to all in case of rain during the event.
The parade was colourful, energetic, vivacious. The floats, the music, the fireworks, the light effects, the snowing effect, the costumes, the performances from different countries was a treat to the eyes. The energy of the hosts (each sector had a different host) and that of of the participants was contagious.
The readiness in case of emergency with ambulances, auxiliary police, fire brigade, security and volunteers was commendable.
If you happen to be in Singapore during this time of the year, don’t miss it. Tickets are available online for advance booking.Written 4 February 2023
- 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.Written 9 September 2023
- 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.Written 5 June 2019
- 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.Written 16 November 2022
- We sat down underneath the superstructures in the centre, on a mild, dry night in September to watch the light show. It was worth getting there shortly before, in order to get a nice spot. No tickets needed, just a lovely chance to take a few and enjoy the lights!Written 26 November 2023

- 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.

- 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.Written 5 January 2017
- 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.Written 1 April 2018
- 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 SingaporeWritten 30 March 2018
- 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 musicWritten 30 July 2023
- 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).Written 11 March 2016
