2. Savor the delicious National Day Celebratory Menu
To commemorate Singapore's 52 years of independence, diners have a chance to sample a specially curated menu featuring a choice of five-course or six-course set menu inclusive of two glasses of champagne.
The menu also features cocktails inspired by zesty local flavours, along with champagne and Monti's original list of jazzy cocktails, all created by Monti's resident mixologist, Joseph T. Millar. The price is from $188 to $228 per person and is available from now until 9th August. For children, it is $68 per set.
Monti also caters to the vegetarians with a special five course menu for $188, and a Special Premium Platter is available for $150.
3. Get to view the State Flag Flypast and the 21-Gun Presidential Gun Salute Don't miss the State Flag Flypast flown by a Republic of Singapore Air Force's Chinook helicopter escorted by two AH-64D Apache helicopters.
Four 25-pounder howitzer guns on board the Mobility 3rd Generation (M3G) military raft will fire 21 times in salute to the President as a military honor. The M3G raft is formed by five amphibious vehicles, which link up to form a raft in the water. Come early to watch these around 6pm to 6.30pm!
