Want To Hold My Hand? The Places and Parties We Can Go To This F1 Weekend: PART 1

Whether you want to hotspot-hop, rip the dance floor up or drink in Singapore’s view with a delicious cocktail (or a few), this is the one week with a myriad of options for you. It doesn’t matter if you are living here or visiting – This is a quick and easy look at some of my top places and picks for a good party time.

You don’t have to follow in my footsteps, but TimeOut Singapore wrote a pretty good list and since I liked but didn’t agree with ALL of their choices, I thought I should make my own.

I have been receiving so many messages from friends and strangers all over the world regarding what I can suggest they should do for F1 week. I am not getting paid for this, nor am I a VIP ticket vending machine – but I thought I should try to help out a bit!

Please note that these are purely my own personal opinions of places or parties I have heard about or been invited to. This does not represent the views of any company I may be engaged with, past, present, or future.

Ready… Steady… Setto!
