Places to Visit & Things to Do
Singapore's weather in September is very pleasant if you go in the first half of the month, you can witness the Hungry Ghost Festival which is usually celebrated between mid-August to mid-September (before the Mid-Autumn Festival). Though the festivities reach a peak on the fifteenth day of the lunar month, you can observe food and other offerings made on various places, burning incense sticks and also stage performances. All this is done to please the departed souls who are believed to roam free in this month - the festival comes with its own set of tales. Get ready to be spooked!
Chinatown also has some other places to visit - Buddha Tooth Relic Temple, Chinatown Heritage Centre, Sri Mariamman Temple, Thian Hock Keng Temple, buy souvenirs at Sago Street, pamper yourself at Bath Culture Foot Therapy Spa or go clubbing at Ann Siang and Club Street.
2. Marina Bay
If you aren't interested in motor racing, then head to Gardens by the Bay which is a pleasure in itself any time of the year. With the beautiful blooms in the Flower Dome, the waterfalls in the Cloud Forest, the Supertree Grove and the walkways, the place is a visual treat! Visiting it in September is all the more awesome due to the ongoing Mid-Autumn Festival. A carnival is organised at the venue with lantern displays, performances, games, Chinese craft stalls and food and drink options.
Visit Esplanade Theatres on the Bay for 'Moonfest', a series of performances - dance, music, theatre, exhibitions, etc, based on Chinese traditions to mark the Mid-Autumn festival.
In addition to all the festivities, don't forget to take a ride on the Singapore Flyer, take snaps of the wonderfully lit Marina Bay Sands hotel in the evening or pose in front of the famous Merlion statue.
After all the beach fun, head to The Great Food Festival at Resort World Sentosa to make your tummies happy with more than 50 varieties of savouries and desserts prepared by world-famous chefs. They will also be organising live demonstrations and cooking classes for you to take part.
