Formula One Grand Prix Stays in Singapore Through 2017

Have a need for speed? You'll love this. We hear that Singapore has agreed to host the Formula One Grand Prix annually until 2017. 

The Marina Bay Street Circuit (aka the Singapore GP Street Circuit) is a 3.148-mile dedicated street circuit that consists of a total of 23 turns (13 left turns and 10 right turns). Drivers whiz past top Singapore sites (think the Anderson Bridge, the Esplanade, Merlion Park, Fullerton Hotel and more). 

As a night race, the Singapore circuit requires about 1,500 floodlights. 

Visitors to Singapore during racing season can check out the lineup at the F1 village. Look forward to Katy Perry and Maroon 5 for this year. 

Posh parties call A-listers to Singapore, as well. Be sure to visit the Amber Lounge, which includes a fashion show, and One Paddock Club, where Nobu Matsuhisa and Jean-Georges Vongerichten have whipped up menus specifically for the glitterati.
