Things You Should Be Doing This Weekend (17 Dec – 23 Dec 2018)

As always, Singapore tends to go quiet before it gets really exciting. Regardless of it being a quiet week, there are still events that you should definitely not miss out in order to get your deals on!

 

Exhibitions / Tours / Events

Virtually Versailles

 

 

For those who have been yearning to pay a visit to France, you can sate your thirst just a little with Virtually Versailles – the world’s first digital exhibition to showcase the Palace of Versailles in all its glory through immersive and interactive technology. You will be able to explore not only its architecture, but also artworks depicting historic Versailles all the way from the 17th century till current date.

 

Stay tuned tomorrow for a preview of Virtually Versailles as the organisers have kindly invited me on a media preview prior to its opening. Trust me when I say that it’s worth the trip.
