The Little Prince-themed activities at Junction 8
Our secondary school lit classes were spent reading books like The Little Prince – we can’t deny that this particular story holds an unspoken air of magic. For fans of the heartfelt storyline, head down to Junction 8 from 26th August – 1st September 2019.
With picturesque rose gardens, a sunset playroom, and glow-in-the-dark installations, Escape to the Stars is a The Little Prince-inspired event that makes for a fun day out for all. Throw in a little shopping spree, and you might just walk away with exclusive merch as well.
Here are the highlights to look forward to:
As an exclusive to TSL readers only, there’s also a The Little Prince character quiz – once done, you can take a photo with your character at the event, after which you’ll stand a chance to be one of 20 lucky readers to take home specially-themed merch.
Snap OOTDs at the Rose Garden
Backdrops are essential to the perfect Insta-post, and any pictures taken at the Rose Garden will definitely add that much-needed class to your IG feed. It’s replicated after the garden where The Little Prince and The Fox first met!
When strolling down the rose tunnel, your friends might even think you’ve made a visit to Seoul’s legendary rose tunnel.
Admire the setting sun at the Sunset Minutes playroom
Sunsets are fleeting – we’ve all rushed to take pictures of a sunset, only to find that the vibrant colours have faded to dusk and the sun’s almost ebbed below the horizon. That won’t be the case over at Sunset Minutes, because you can admire as many sunsets as you like – it’s on repeat in this themed playroom!
Stargaze in a glow-in-the-dark room
Stargazing in Singapore is a tad difficult considering that our night sky is almost void of any twinkling lights. But over at the Night Room, treat yourself to endless glowing illustrations and excerpts that will light up your night.
You’ll also find big inflatable balls that you can play with. It’ll change colour with every touch – perfect to inject a little light and colour to your day.
Spend a lazy afternoon at The Rose’s glamping grounds
We’ve seen our fair share of romantic glamping set-ups, and to experience a similar touch of glamour, stop by The Rose. There’s a massive centrepiece of a rose, symbolising the Prince’s quest in understanding love. This glamping ground is open to all, so you can drop by whenever you like and while away the afternoon in this outdoor Insta-worthy space.
