  • Great place to visit! Lovely views of the bay area (marina bay sands, merlion, etc.) from the ground floor and also from the roof. . For Singaporean food, try out the Straits Chinese restaurant. Restaurants here are generally good but slightly pricey. Free performances happen quite often at a few locations, so good to check out their website. Actual performance venues are world class
  • After a concert it's all about to start in one of the lobby areas. There you see a lots of art shops and a small walking distance further on a hawker food centre and some restaurants, absolutely unexpected and surprising.There is no need to come here for concerts or theatres only. Simply come here for a walk and take pictures from the fantastic views around.
  • Esplanade park is Historical monument place. One should not forget the soul laid down for our peaceful living. They sacrificed their life for us to breathe independence. You will love to visit the park with National Heritage Monuments.Be there at 4pm. Good photographic location on the steps of the river.
  • Only visited the Recital Hall this time round. The performance by Seoul choir group was excellent. The local choir groups did their their best too. There was also instrumental performance by a group of 4 consisting of one cellist and three violinists. Nice!
  • A great place to go for live concerts and performances. Esplanade has different venues of different sizes catering to many types of performances, from outdoor shows to intimate performances to two 1500+ seaters. The sound systems are great, seats are comfortable, and there is ample parking in the basement.
