The demolition of the old National Stadium in 2011 brought about the construction of the Singapore Sports Hub, which opened in June last year. If you haven’t already been there, the 35-hectare sports complex not only houses the new and improved National Stadium, it is the go-to place for sure FUN! In case you, like many others, don’t already know, Kallang Wave Mall and the Water Sports Centre are also part of this new sports complex. How exciting! Here are 8 reasons why the Singapore Sports Hub should be your next adventure!
1. Eat, Eat & Eat If you’re Singaporean, then food has to come first! There’s a wide array of restaurants and cafes offering food that is true to Singapore, or international cuisine if your palate desires! Go local with nasi lemak, popiah, carrot cake, and chendol, or travel via your tastebuds to Penang, Thailand, India, Japan, Indonesia and more! You’ll be spoilt for choice.
