  • Stadium can open and close up. When there's a celebration, the stadium can sparkle fireworks all over the place, and it's making a very beautiful scenery. My family & I went there last year for the opening ceremony of the SEA games. It is a very nice and perfect place to go. There is a MRT station nearby, called Stadium, and it's very convenient to go to and fro, but there's one small problem. When there's a big ceremony, the whole place will be very crowded, and the queue is very, very long. You will have a problem finding a seat, and when you want to go back home by MRT, the whole train will be very, very crowded, especially when you live very far away. So it's best to go there early. But the problem is, people don't like to go there too early as they have to wait for very, very long and will be tired and bored. So don't go there so early, and not too late!
  • Nice place great surrounding structure. However can't really understand why the stadium isn't open to the public. So much money had been spent, isn't it a good idea to recoup a bit of the investment by having an admission charge...
  • Ticket entry system is good and efficient. National stadium is huge. I was here for jay chou concert but was feeling disappointed because of the bad sound quality. Sound was muffled with strong bass.. Please improve the system for future concerts if any. Quite pissed off with that. I couldn't hear what he was talking and it's not his fault. Many people were complaining about it too. Please do something or don't hold concert here.
  • One of the best water parks in Singapore! Never ending fun for little ones! Just be careful of getting sunburned!
  • Place where Singapore hosts their National Day Parade in 2016. The 1st NDP after it was completed. Great hangout place with family or friends. Nice restaurants and shopping under the same roof.
