Singapore prepares for major events in July

Singapore could be set for an influx of visitors in July, with two major events set to be held in the city-state.

The Garden Festival will run from 15 to 22 July and will celebrate the talents of the world’s “gardening luminaries”.

Based at Suntec Singapore, the exhibition will feature highlights including displays by local and award-winning designers and a showcase of orchids found in South East Asia.

Another highlight for travellers to look out for this month is the Singapore Night Festival, which will take place in the Bras Basah precinct on 16 and 17 July.

Running from 18:30 to 02:00 local time on each night, the festival will feature a host of special events including street theatre performances and art installations, as well as extended opening hours at the National Museum of Singapore, the Peranakan Museum and other venues.

The Singapore Food Festival is also being held throughout the month of July and finishes on 1 August.
