SINGAPORE – Whether you’re a speed enthusiast or not, travelers can immerse themselves in the lively and vibrant atmosphere that envelops the entire nation during Grand Prix Season 2023.
In contrast to its modern, bustling daytime appearance, Singapore by night transforms into a vibrant entertainment hub with a variety of nightlife activities catering to tourists.
During the Grand Prix Season Singapore 2023, which runs from September 8th to 17th, the island nation continuously offers nighttime events and entertainment activities. This is an opportunity for visitors to admire the vibrant beauty of the country during the 10 “sleepless” nights.
Not limited to the four central areas of Orchard Road, Clarke Quay, Kampong Gelam, and Sentosa, GPSS offers a diverse range of programs and activities designed under the theme of “Festival Race” across the nation. Photo: TIH
“A Shopper’s Paradise”
For shopping enthusiasts, Orchard Road, often referred to as the “shopping paradise,” is a must-visit destination with hundreds of international and local brands, ranging from mid-range to luxury. During GPSS 2023, Orchard Road also gets a fresh makeover in line with the “Festival Race” theme.
Visitors can explore local souvenirs at Orchard Pit Shops: GPSS Lifestyle Bazaar or collect limited-edition products at Design Orchard. Additionally, there are other activities such as enjoying music, art installations, or striking a pose under the dazzling lights. Photo: Strait Times
