Singapore Grand Prix is fast approaching and we wanted to give you a glimpse into this glamorous and cosmopolitan city, bursting with cultural experiences to enhance every moment of your F1 grand prix weekend. Here are some of our best tips to enable you to dip into everything Singapore has to offer during this electric weekend.

Getting around the city

The quickest and most convenient way to get to the city from the airport is via the modern Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) rail system. Trains leave every 12 minutes and the journey time into City Hall Station is just 27 minutes.

With the MRT at your disposal, as well as bus and taxis services, it is extremely easy to explore this incredible city during the Grand Prix weekend. Walking around Singapore when these services aren’t available is safe and convenient with the added bonus of being able to stop at places of interest along the way.
Singapore’s Changi Airport has lots to offer with 160 shops and 80 restaurants, there is certainly heaps to keep you entertained before you leave for home.

Only in Singapore

Gear up to explore Singapore’s iconic landmarks during the Formula 1 weekend including The Gardens by the Bay, Marina Bay Sands and Sentosa.

Some of the essential sightseeing locations in Singapore include The Helix Bridge which links the Marina Centre with Marine South and forms part of a 3.5 km pedestrian loop around the bay. Singapore Flyer is the largest observation wheel around the globe at 165m high, 30 m taller than the famous London Eye. The Singapore Zoo is also a definite must-see as it offers the unique experience of a night safari.

Singapore is one of only three surviving city-states in the world along with Monaco and Vatican City.

Formula 1 is ready to steal the spotlight

Home to the first night race, the floodlit track takes advantage of its impressive landmarks, guiding F1 fans around Singapore sights.

“It’s a very physical circuit – more than I expected, actually. You need to put a lot of work into the car to get a good lap – I’d say it requires double the energy of Monaco over a single lap. One lap around here is like two laps of Monaco!”
