52 weeks of #ExcitingSG in 2018

We challenge you to get involved in at least one exciting activity happening around town each week for 2018

This year, Time Out Singapore is challenging you to get more involved in your city. If there's one thing that we found out from the Time Out City Index Survey, it's that Singaporeans don't enjoy living here that much and find city life kinda bland.

But no fear – we're here to help you fall back in love with the Lion City one exciting event at a time. We're making a a year-long commitment to get you inspired by what Singapore has to offer every single week – all you have to do is make the time.

Each Monday, a special guest who's 'in' with the scene – think musicians, DJs, artists, chefs and designers – takes over this space to wax lyrical about what they love about Singapore and recommends something to eat, see, do or buy in the city. 

We also want YOU to tell us what's good in the city: share a favourite snapshot of your Singapore life – be it a music festival, foodporn, urban landscape, or even a cute stray cat – with the hashtag #ExcitingSG. Keep your eyes peeled for free treats, tickets and giveaways so you can live out your best Singapore life in 2018.
