Where to park for PC Show 2018 (Cheapest & most damaging car parks revealed)

By Vijay Anand - 31 May 2018

Where to park for PC Show 2018

Note: This article is adapted and updated from our first edition.

For those who are driving to the PC Show, parking is always a concern but it’s doubly so at Marina Bay Sands (MBS) because of the high parking rates and a fair bit of walking required between the car park and the expo area.

So here are some alternative parking areas we've put together for consideration (be warned though as you will either have to walk or take the MRT). While certain places may have lower parking rates, do take note that parking lots may be limited (especially at MBS itself).

Esplanade

If the weather is kind, you could always park at the Esplanade and enjoy the walk over the Helix Bridge to MBS.

Gardens by the Bay

If you don’t mind the heat, you could always park at Gardens by the Bay and walk over to the show venue.

Marina Square

You can either walk to Marina Bay Sands (about a 15-minute walk), or walk over to Suntec City and hop onto the free shuttle bus service.

Marina Bay Financial Centre

For those who would prefer a shorter walk to MBS itself, there’s always the Marina Bay Financial Centre, which is less than a 10-minute walk from MBS.

Millenia Walk

If you don't wish to walk too far for a train station, you could always park at Millenia Walk and walk to the Promenade station.

Suntec City

Alternatively, you can park at Suntec City itself, which has direct access to both Esplanade or Promenade MRT stations. If you can, park close to the Promenade station side of Suntec City as that is just one stop away from Bayfront, which is the station that services MBS.

Our quick recommendation? 

Marina Square comes out as the most cost-conscious option if you need to drop by MBS during the day. If you're heading there in the evening or over the weekend, Suntec City and Millenia Walk are your best options.

Happy Shopping!
