This is the first time that the Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) Army Open House is moved from the usual army camps to the city with new backdrop of the Gardens by the Bay that is opening to the public in June, Marina Bay Sands Integrated Resort and the Marina Bay Financial district.

The F1 Pit Building area is now replaced with Singapore’s military hardware and personnel.

Many thanks to MINDEF PAFF for the bloggers preview invitation.
