Things you can & cannot do in & around Tanglin area during Trump-Kim summit
Please don't fly your drone there.
The Ministry of Home Affairs has gazetted the Tanglin area as a “special event area” from June 10 to June 14.
The general assumption is that the Donald Trump-Kim Jong-un summit is supposedly happening on June 12.
Located within the area is the Shangri-La hotel, which is rumoured to be the venue of the summit.
Special Event Area
The “special event area” is bound by Bukit Timah Road, Scotts Road, Paterson Road, Cluny Road, and Evans Road. It excludes private property.
Special Zone within Special Event Area
Within the “special event area”, the Singapore police has also designated a “special zone” where the police can exercise enhanced powers.
This “special zone” is bounded by Fernhill Road, Nassim Road, Orchard Boulevard, Anguila Park, Claymore Hill, Draycott Drive, and Stevens Road.
