Feel like doing something more intimate? How about buying some lanterns and exploring our garden city with your favourite people! Hear the sounds of nature under the light of the lanterns and the full moon. We suggest staying close to home for a comforting day out, and visiting the various nature reserves and parks we have in Singapore.

Change it up by renting Hanfu to wear for the day, such as these by Era in Time, whose Song and Ming Dynasty collections will surely make the day memorable. Check out their collections on their Instagram!

Celebrate the festivities and head down to these events! ๐Ÿ’–
