Hari Raya festivities

Experience the festivities of Hari Raya Aidilfitri, which marks the end of the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, an important time of the year for Muslims all over the world. Fasting and prayer are important aspects of the festival, and it is also a good opportunity to

bond with family and for non-Muslims to explore and learn more about these practices and traditions. There are many events and places to explore during this time, such as the Ramadan Bazaars at Geylang Serai and Kampong Glam. The Geylang Serai Hari Raya Light-up is also a must-see, so take a walk or drive down the beautifully lit roads with the family for a magical experience.

Sensory Sentosa

Sentosa is always an exciting place to visit, but what if you wanted a quieter kind of outing? The new Sentosa Sensoryscape is a series of awe-inspiring installations that combines nature, biophilic architecture that tries to bring people closer to nature, and technology to bring you a multisensory experience like no other. These massive installations include a central spine connecting Resorts World Sentosa to the beach. If you want to avoid the sun, the installations also provide a fantastic night-time spectacle, with light shows and soundscapes that will definitely leave you impressed. Take a trip to Sentosa to see this new milestone of the Sentosa-Brani Master Plan, and maybe visit some other attractions while you are there.
