When Artbox Singapore, the local iteration of the popular Bangkok lifestyle market, first landed here in 2017, way too many people packed into its tiny 50,000 sq ft confines at Bayfront event space, and the result was overcrowding and disappointment. The year after, they expanded considerably to 140,000 sq ft, but it was still crowded. This year, they've ponied up (literally) and trotted over to a much larger space — the event which runs over two weekends now takes up 200,000 sq ft (that's about four football fields) at the Singapore Turf Club at Kranji. Sure, it's a little off the beaten track (make that a lot off, actually) but with this freedom of space, the event can now hold about 250 retail and F&B vendors and an endless list of activities, performances, workshops and Instagrammable spots, so it's worth making a day of it and schlepping all the way to Kranji. Dress light, bring fans, an empty stomach and a full phone battery. 8days.sg tells you what to look out for.
