Singapore holds several tech-driven expos throughout the year such as the IT Show, COMEX, SITEX, and more. If you have spare time to visit SG a few days before the Great Singapore Sale, then you’ll be able to catch the tail end of The PC Show. It’s a great opportunity to check out all the latest gadgets so you can canvass your picks. You could even do a couple of tech trade-ins. The convention offers free admission and will run from May 31 until June 3.

The ginormous 12,000 square feet branch features arcades, unique lounges, bowling alleys, and a futuristic indoor bump car ride with LED lights. There’s also a monorail going straight to Sentosa Island if you want to be a beach bum.
