And whether you're a first-timer, an ardent patron or fellow arts lover, you're most welcome here and we'll do our best to give you a great experience with the arts.

These durian-inspired building are another modern and beautiful architecture in Singapore. There's a wonderful coffee/chocolate shop by the entrance and a food market, bands and fireworks at night.

Esplanade gives you a spectacular view over the Singapore bay. There is a very Foodcourt with typical food on one side an good and not too expensive restaurants at the theaters. You can also just sit at the bay and enjoy the view.

Hi there! Yes, if the seats are not labelled (restricted view), you should have a clear view of the stage from Circle 1 all the way up to Circle 3. Hope this helps, thanks!
