With so much to do at the Singapore Botanic Gardens, it is easily one of the most family-friendly places to go to! Our favourite time to visit is when there is a concert happening at the Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage, and bringing along our picnic mats for a picnic at the same time!
The evening's entertainment will feature a performance by FIVERA, a quintet of classically trained musicians from Thailand who will thrill audiences with their repertoire of popular classic operatic arias and renditions of universally popular hit songs from the movies and West End show tunes.
