Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers.
Labour Day has its origins in the labour union movement, specifically the eight-hour day movement, which advocated eight hours for work, eight hours for recreation, and eight hours for rest.
In Singapore you can enjoy events, sales and spend time with family; there are picnics, performances, activities for small children, souvenirs and refreshments.
At the Istana, the residence of the President of Singapore, the 100-acre grounds and some buildings are open to the public and worth a visit.
This guided walk is a collaboration between the President’s Office and the National Parks Board (NParks), which will showcase the Istana’s flora, fauna and biodiversity.
The guided walk starts from 10am to 4pm, and is conducted hourly. Please look out for signs on the Istana grounds to find out where you can register for the guided walk.
Guided walk fees:
$2.00 child | $4 Singaporeans / PRs | $10.00 foreigners
