Celebrate Mid-Autumn Festival with PLQ

For the uninitiated, Paya Lebar has a bunch of surrounding malls and entertainment spaces, including the aforementioned PLQ Parkside. 

Those planning to head to PLQ Parkside can alight at Paya Lebar MRT and take Exit E. Then, walk towards Wine Connection and cross the street to Sims Avenue. Once you see the giant sign right by the traffic lights, you’ll know you’re at the right place.

Alternatively, you can also head there via PLQ Mall, Level 2. Just walk towards Watsons (#02-19) and cross the bridge over to Park Place Residences, and head to Level 1 from there to find PLQ Parkside.

Aside from stuffing your face silly with mooncakes, consider planning a fun get-together with your friends and family at PLQ. You’ll find that the place is pretty lit, with its live entertainment and gorgeous photo ops. And hey, you can also take advantage of the F&B promos available!
