Highlights

This year we commemorate 200 years since the founding of Singapore - but this land has a much longer and richer past than you can imagine. Join us for an informative, entertaining and experiential evening as we walk through 700 years of Singapore's history with a multi-sensory experience at “From Singapore to Singaporean: The Bicentennial Experience”, held at the Fort Canning Centre.  

This special showcase will only be available for a short time - slots are limited and sell out fast. We have been able to secure 50 tickets for 3PG members - so RSVP now to join us on July 12th.

NOTE: Please arrive on time at 7.30pm for 3PlayGrounds to mark attendance so that the group can be ready by 7.45pm to register for the Show which starts at 8pm - latecomers will not be granted admittance! Tickets are free of charge but limited in number, so kindly un-RSVP before 1 July 2019 if you can't make it - this way someone else can go.

Learn more about Singapore's bicentennial through the official website. If you can't join us on July 12th - no worries - tickets for other dates are available here.

Part One – Time Traveller

A multi-sensory journey through Singapore's history in five acts, with a prelude that touches on the climatic episodes our island experienced. The indoor experience highlights key moments and formative events from our past and tells the story of our journey through a combination of live actors, moving sets, and multimedia projections.

Part 2 – Pathfinder

A series of outdoor pavilions where you can discover new aspects of Singapore history. Explore these structures at your own pace and see how Singapore's past connects with the rest of the world. Examine fascinating historical maps, peer through telescopes, learn about native plant species and much more. We will be visiting at night and will be able to catch the Lightbeam light show in one of three possible colours.

  • I had a amazing trip with a group of friendly and warm tour mates. Carly was such an assuring tour leader. Excellent and safe Vietnamese driver, Jerry. well spoken English Vietnamese guide Tommy. I enjoyed myself very much and look forward for another trip!

  • Excellent short trip with beautiful verdant countryside and charming local tribal people not corrupted by tourism yet . Be prepared for long drive on narrow winding mountain roads.

  • Best trip ever ! Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time !

Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time ! Everyone kept their cool when faced with an unforseen delay . The scenery at Ha Giang is simply superb . There are so many small towns within the mountains with so many minority races living together . Their costumes are so colourful and the ladies' headgears are so lovely to gawk at . If I could , I would love to go again . Highly recommended for gungho people with "throw everything to the wind" attitude . Fantastic local guide and driver (Tom & Jerry) and pats on the back for Carly (Singapore guide) too . Thanks .........rosse and raymond . Read less

  • Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. ...

Late evening slot was a good idea as we got to see the night installations at The PathFinder portion, but food stalls already closed upon exit. There are toilets inside the exhibit in Fort Canning Center itself. Cleaner than the mobile toilets outside. Thank you for helping to get us tickets when it is so difficult to do so. Read less

  • My wife, son and I never regret of signing up this trip. My 8 year old son enjoyed the walk on the rocky beach. Best moment of the walk was that we came closed to the corals, crabs ???? and ???? shrimps. Thank you threeplaygrounds!
