Renowned for its shopping, every year Singapore hosts its Grand Singapore Sale, one of the most elaborate shopping festivals between the months of May and August.
The phrase shop till you drop is aptly coined for shopping in Singapore. From branded labels to shops selling local stuff, shopping in Singapore is a shoppers' delight. During this period one can avail discounts up to 70%, great value add offers and some ridiculous gift vouchers and best of all you get all this – while you are shopping!

So if your partner is a shopaholic surprise him/her with a ticket to the great sell in Singapore while you will attend the 16th COGI Congress.
No wonder then that Singapore is one of Asia’s favorite shopping destinations!

Gardens by the Bay consist of three distinctive waterfront gardens – Bay South, Bay East and Bay Central, spanning a total of 101 hectares. They are set in the heart of Singapore’s new downtown Marina Bay, encircling the Marina Reservoir like a green necklace.
Gardens by the Bay is an integral part of a strategy by the Singapore government that further transforms Singapore from a ‘Garden City’ to a ‘City in a Garden’, in which the city is woven into a green and floral tapestry. This aims to raise the quality of life in Singapore with a more holistic and all-encompassing program that enhances greenery and flora in the city.
Month of Photography Asia
Known as MOPAsia for short, Month of Photography Asia brings solo and group photo exhibitions to Singapore's galleries and museums.
The festival has evolved over the years to become a regionally positioned platf orm, celebrating and promoting photography both as an art and as a creative industry. The featured photographers base their work around the festival's central theme, which addresses political, social and cultural aspects of Asia.
