    Singapore expo. It reminds me of a malaysia outskirt village where you have to travel for super long just to get there. I wonder why do they ever build it there in the first place. Because it is cheap?

    However, after when there is a MRT station there, the accessibility started to get better, by a bit only. People still need to take a long time just to reach there, but it is still reachable.

    the expo has some redeeming factors, not that it is totally bad. one of them is that it is super huge! you can seriously get lost in there if you do not know the place well. another one is that the carpark is quite big, and there is another huge "carpark" for you to park, which is the industrial estate. People usually go there and park their cars by the side, thus saving parking fees and time to look for a lot.

    Maybe one good thing of the expo is that people may not want to go there cos it is so far away. As such, there will not be that much people squeezing with you. Overall, expo is seriously not that bad.If you like the exhibitions to be big, i can safely say that space constraints is not a factor over there.

    Rating: 3/5 (If not for the distance, i will go there more often)

      Definitely no where as good as Singapore Indoor Stadium...

      First of all, it's in the middle of nowhere (unless you study at temasek poly). Drive? There's never any parking. Public transport? The bus takes too damn long, and the mrt can sometimes take up to 10 mins (or more) to arrive at tanah merah station, just to travel that one stop, less than 3 mins away.

      Secondly, it's overcrowded with people. I suppose it would be worse if you had an exhibition hall in the city (like suntec), but if you have NINE halls side by side, it's crazy. On top of that, 2 of the biggest churches in singapore have their weekly weekend services there.

      Thirdly, I can't stand it when artists hold concerts there. The place just isn't meant to be a theatre or stadium, its an exhibition hall for goodness sake. What's wrong with singapore indoor stadium, victoria, esplanade....

      The only reason why you would be there is if the exhibition is just too big to put anywhere else. At the end of the day, that's all expo is, a huge air-conditioned empty piece of land, with an undersized carpark.

        Actually its kinda waste of money they put the place where hardly people are nd somemore the stuffs over there is very highly expensive to me aspcially the food, once i went there and order food from the stall and when i was ready to eat the food is already cold and i'm having food poisoning from there .... that palce is very quiet. thay should demolish it and opened it at the city area. Change the whole stting the government cut our taxes alot and they should renovates it it i bet singapore can do it.

        i think the place there isn't good for people to travel even buses you have to wait quite sometime thats why i have to walk all the walk to ITE simei to take bus..
