UFC Singapore 2017

UFC  2017 Fight Night in Singapore Singapore is one of those very few cities around the world that marry the old and the new, the West and the East, in such an amazing way that often leaves us speechless. With a great variety of both outdoors and indoors activities and events to visit, tourists can spend countless days in Singapore and still not manage to see everything the city has to offer. This alone makes our attempts at listing the best activities and events in Singapore almost futile. However, that doesn’t mean that we won’t keep trying. And as if to accent the contrast between the eastern cultures that flow through Singapore and the western ones that have also come to stay in the city, one indoors annual event that also attracts an awful lot fans and visitors is the UFC Fight Night. The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is the world’s leading MMA (mixed martial [...]

Singapore Grand Prix 2017

Singapore Grand Prix 2017 There are countless of great things you can do in Singapore – sightseeing and cuisine aside, the outdoor activities as a whole are innumerable. And while we tried to list the top ones here, it’s virtually impossible to do so. This becomes especially true when you consider some of the many annual worldwide events that visit Singapore like the Formula 1 Grand Prix. Conducted in Singapore every year since 2008, the Grand Prix of Singapore has quickly become a fan-favourite among Formula 1 fans and is often referred to as the “crown jewel” of the Formula 1 calendar. With a circuit length of 5.065 kilometres and 61 laps, the total distance of the Marina Bay Street Circuit in Singapore is 308.828 kilometres.

Our earlier post covered the Singapore Food Festival, and the World Gourmet Summit is another even that food-enthusiasts simply don’t want to miss!

It’s no secret that Singapore is a city that’s overflowing with music – practically whenever you visit Singapore, there are going to be multiple musical events and festivals. We already covered some of them like Laneway Music Festival Singapore 2017 and Ultra Singapore 2017 , but there are so much more to explore about the musical scene in Singapore that we simple can’t stop here. Therefore, let’s take a look at another one of Singapore’s amazing events – Neon Lights Music & Art Festival!

Laneway Festival Singapore 2017

We already told you about the Singapore Symphony Orchestra and Ultra Singapore, so let’s take a look at another one of the many great music events in Singapore – St. Jerome’s Laneway Festival! An annual festival that takes place each January, St. Jerome's Laneway Festival is a treat that no music fan would want to miss. It’s one of the biggest “indie” music events in the country, focusing on qualitative independent music, instead of typical pop and mainstream performers and bands. If you are interested in spending a day outside, listening to new and amazing music, instead of the popular “hits” you hear on the radio every day - St. Jerome's Laneway Festival has got you covered. Called Laneway for short, this festival began in 2005 in Melbourne, Australia, in Caledonian Lane. Today it’s performed not only across multiple cities in Australia and in Singapore, but also Auckland, New Zealand, and Detroit, United States, making [...]

ULTRA Singapore 2017

We just talked about the Singapore Symphony Orchestra here, but as we said, there are a ton of different music events in the city, practically every night. So why not jump to something completely different this time and talk about Ultra Singapore! Ultra Singapore is something fairly new for Singapore – it is an outdoor electronic music festival that was first performed in 2015 as a part of the worldwide Ultra Music Festival. The Festival itself was first started in 1999 in Miami and ever since then has consistently been setting the bar in the Electronic Dance Music genre (EDM). In 2015 the Ultra Singapore saw world-famous musicians such as Alesso, Skrillex and Nicky Romero, and in 2016 Kygo, the Far East Movement, Nero, DJ Snake, Marshmello, Jauz, and deadmau5 performed across three different festival stages! Both previous years the festival took place in September, but in 2017 it will be held on June 10th [...]

Singapore Symphony Orchestra

There are a lot of great events that you can visit in Singapore, and music events are certainly a big part of that. The Singapore music scene offers something for everyone’s taste and that doesn’t just include the various types of modern music. Even if you are a classical aficionado, Singapore has got you covered with its world-famous Singapore Symphony Orchestra (SSO)! The SSO has events throughout the entire year, on an almost weekly basis. If you’re in Singapore during a weekend, check out the SSO’s schedule – chances are very high that they’ll be entertaining an entire hall full of people – most probably the Esplanade Concert Hall - with their brilliance! Another frequent place where you can see the SSO is the Victoria Concert Hall. Overall, the Singapore Symphony Orchestra performs over 100 times per year! The SSO was formed back in 1945 by the Scottish composer Erik Chisholm in his capacity as [...]

National Museum of Singapore

There are a lot of different types of tourism. Food tourism, beach tourism, sightseeing tourism, etc. They all include different activities and they all drive you to look for different things. However, no matter what kind of tourism you prefer, there are some places that just shouldn’t be missed when you are in a foreign country – the places that show you as much of the country’s history, culture and spirit as possible. So even if you’re not a fan of museums and even if you intend to spend your vacation enjoying the nightlife, for example, or the countless food places in Singapore (and, boy, does Singapore offer a lot in that regard!), it’s still worth to visit at least one museum to get the feel of the city’s history. And if you want to do that, then the National Museum of Singapore is the one to check out. The National Museum of Singapore is [...]
