    Paying your last respects at Parliament House

    LEE Kuan Yew's body lies in state at Parliament House until Saturday for the public to pay their last respects.

    Here is a guide on the lying-in-state:

    Can anyone pay their respects?

    Yes, although children should be accompanied by adults.

    When should I go?

    Visiting hours will be 24 hours daily from now until 8pm on Saturday


    Is there a dress code? How should I behave?

    There is no dress code or code of conduct. However, the public is advised to "be mindful of the solemnity and decorum of the occasion, both in their dressing and bearing", according to the official Remembering Lee Kuan Yew Facebook page.

    Where do I enter?

    Instead of the usual public entrance on Parliament Place, visitors should enter from the promenade along the Singapore River. Visitors will be ushered to the Hall of Parliament House, where Mr Lee's body lies.
