3 Reasons To Head To Marina Bay This Weekend (June 2 to 4)

Cyborgs, pyrotechnics and a pop-up beach. And that's just the tip of the iceberg.

Now you know where's the place to be - or not to be, depending on your aversion to crowds - this weekend. 

#1: For some illumination, go to Gardens by the Bay.

For a little fun for the whole family and your Instagram feed, slink over to Gardens by the Bay’s fifth anniversary celebrations that include fun installations, parades with roving dancers and percussion performances, food (but, of course), and even a screening of Storks. Marvel at a thrilling kaleidoscopic light show (the 30-min Gardens Extravaganza Special is on at 7.45pm nightly) with aerial performers, video-mapping and pyrotechnics. Perfect for an Insta-story, or three. For more info, go to http://www.gardensbythebay.com.sg/en/whats-on/calendar-of-events/gardens-turns-5/gardens-turns-5-memories.html.

What: Gardens Extravaganza Special | When: June 3 to 4, 4 to 11pm | Where: Supertree Grove at Gardens by the Bay

#2: To explore the world of cyborgs and clones, go to the ArtScience Museum.

This latest blockbuster exhibition may spark off a few debates on existentialism. HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species explores the world of genetic engineering (designer babies, anyone?), artificial intelligence and biotechnology. Chat with a life-like female robot or gawk at artwork fashioned from human tissues. Tix from http://www.marinabaysands.com/museum/ticketing.html. .

What: HUMAN+: The Future of Our Species | When: Until Oct 15 |Where: ArtScience Museum, Marina Bay Sands

#3: To burn some calories, go to the DBS Marina Regatta.

Here’s a reason to skip the gym this weekend. Feel the burrrnn instead at DBS Marina Regatta’s Wipeout-esque inflatable water obstacle course spanning nine obstacles and 11,000 sq ft (and win some cash while you’re at it), one of the free barre, yoga and HIIT classes, or dance it off at a Countdown to Ultra Party featuring DJs like Dubvision and Jade Rasif. If you’d rather sit back and watch the action, catch a dragon boat race or frolick at a pop-up urban beach where Bali’s Potato Head brings its Coconut Bar to our shores for the first time. For more info, go to https://www.dbsbythebay.com/marina-regatta/.

What: DBS Marina Regatta | When: Until June 4, 10am to 10pm | Where: The Promontory@Marina Bay, 11 Marina Boulevard
