    GETTING THERE

    1. By Train – Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Line
    Singapore EXPO is served by its own station, Expo MRT station.
    To get to Singapore EXPO from Changi Airport, take the east bound train. It is just one stop from Changi Airport MRT and the journey lasts only 4 minutes. Average frequency from Changi Airport station is 12 minutes.

    If you are coming from other parts of Singapore, transfer trains at Tanah Merah station (on the East West line) where the train will take you to Expo MRT in 3 minutes.

    The station is behind Hall 6.

    ==================================================


    NOTE TO ALL COSPLAYERS/PHOTOGRAPHERS

    Based on the Cosplayers & Photographers Experiences at The Games Xpo (TGX), Security at Singapore Expo might be even more "anal" than at Suntec Convention Halls.

    Below are some infos you should know; can add on if you have any :

    - Somewhere around Halls 1 & 2 is being used by CHC (City Harvest Church) for their Services, so STAY AWAY FROM THAT HALL AND AREAS AROUND IT Reports from cosplayers and photographers who attended TGX is that their Followers were the ones who keep complaining to Expo's Security about Cosplayers and Photographers "disturbing them and going into their space" so be wary of them

    - If cosplaying Characters wearing Full-Faced Helmet/Mask or wearing partial Mask, be prepared to be told by the Security to remove it while walking along the Outside (Corridors) of Halls 3-6. They say it's for "Security" reasons......

    - There are more Toilets on Level 2 above Halls 3-6. If you use them, Please Keep the Place Clean and keep your Volumes down so won't be chased out by the Security or Cleaners

    - DBS ATM is available at Foyer 1 (if I remember correctly) but it only dispense $50 Notes.
    Should try Changi City Point for better choices of ATMs

    Will post more when needed

    Just to clarify things, For Friday, its true that 90% of stalls won't be open/ready, and only a handful will be. So better to go on sat, or sun.

    Hall 7 & 8 (aka the Festival/Convention) Halls WON'T be open on Friday at all.
    Basically there is Nothing happening on Friday except the Electric Groove Anisong World Stage Concert at Night.

    Donno if they are gonna sell any AFA/AniSong Merchandises in The Max Pavilion on Friday Night for the Electric Groove Anisong World Stage but it might be either inside the Max Pavilion itself or just outside it. And it's only the AFA/AniSong Merchandises.

    Question though, will there be like bag areas for cosplayers? Or are they all supposed to be just lugging things around while roaming the place? Any ideas? :O

    EDIT: Ah, saw the other thread and welp, looks like I'll be carrying baggage around with me. Darn

    Well......a long time ago when Cosplay first started to take foot in Singapore, that's what we did, having to carry our stuffs around ourselves or friends help.

    Then again back then, we only got Miyuki Animation Club Cosplay in Dec, later Cosfest and a few random Cosplay Events at some Shopping Centre, Youth Park etc etc.


    So what you can do now is find some big bag that has a Zip to close it (so hardly anything can drop out) or carrying a small Roller Luggage Bag. Keep everything except your Big Purchases inside the Bag.

    Wow, pretty drastic! But I think I'll live with a few bags here and there...I think. Big bags aren't really convenient too. I'll probably bring a small pouch of sorts to stuff some other cosmetics and stuff too D: Woe to the lack of lockers haha
