Find out more about Singapore and plan your trip here!
You can collect your festival pass from the registration counter at the L1 Lobby of the National Library from 25 to 28 May, between 8:30am to 6pm SGT.
Singapore has a tropical rainforest climate with abundant rainfall. Temperatures range from 29°C – 33°C during the day, and from 25°C – 28°C at night.
Singapore has an extensive bus transport system, though the Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) is the quickest way to get around the island. You can purchase a Singapore Tourist Pass (STP), a special EZ-Link stored-value card which will allow you to travel for one, two, or three days.

Taxis are only allowed to stop at designated taxi stands. They are relatively affordable and always use the meter, though there could be surcharges at certain times of the day.
Ride-hailing services, such as Grab, Go-Jek, and RYDE are alternative ways to get around Singapore and can be easily booked via the Grab, Go-Jek, or RYDE app on your mobile device.
To check if you will require a visa to visit Singapore, please check the Immigration & Checkpoints Authority or with your local consular office.
