Okay, so travelling overseas is out of the question at the moment and if the wanderlust is too much to bear, hold on, for there might be a solution. In an effort to boost domestic tourism, Singapore Tourism Board will launch SingapoRediscovers Vouchers, where Singaporeans will be given up to S$320 million in tourism credits to rediscover our sunny island.
Don’t turn your nose up at it first, there are some pretty fun things you can do and at a discount—what could be better?
It’s always a good time for culture and there is no better place than the ArtScience Museum where you can be inspired and let your imagination run free. With SingapoRediscovers Vouchers, you can enjoy up to 30% of their Future World: Where Art Meets Science.
Yup, it’s the one with all the pretty lights that dominated everyone’s Instagram feed for a while and I have to admit it does look good in a picture.
See Singapore in a whole new light with walking tours around famous spots in Singapore. Who knows you might learn something new about our sunny island. Take your pick from Culture Curious Singapore Tours or Everday Tour Company, where you can enjoy up to 20% of their walking tours.
With Culture Curious Singapore Tours, you can experience Singapore through Art with 20% off their Picture Places Walking Tour. Now, who said we’re not cultured?
This is for adrenaline junkies that crave that little bit of excitement. With SingapoRediscovers Vouchers, experience the paranormal side of Singapore in the Creepy Tales of Singapore Tour organised by Oriental Travel & Tours.
Besides a sweet 30% discount, you’ll also visit a coastal gun battery near a beach where the Japanese might have possibly massacred thousands of innocent people during the infamous ‘Sook Ching’ operation. A little different from your 10 facts about Chinatown for sure.
Okay, so the ghost-hunting route is not for you. How about the unlimited trips to the beautifully air-conditioned Flower Dome and Cloud Forest.
For just S$20, all you have to do is purchase a ticket to both conservatories and you’ll be able to visit them as many times as you want for 6 months. You’ll have to be quick with this one though, as the offer ends on 31 August 2020.
You can even purchase the tickets online, so if you want to bask in all that Flower Dome has to offer, you know what to do.
Nothing says escape more than virtual reality and HeadRock VR at Resorts World Sentosa does the trick. As Singapore’s first-ever indoor virtual reality theme park, it features 11 digital attractions, such as Storm Blizzard, Extreme Train, Horror Room and more.
You can purchase different packages such as the Big 3 (S$35), Big 5 (S$50) and Big 7 (S$50). With SingapoRediscover, you can enjoy S$10 off these various packages.
Here is an experience that is great for groups and one for the keeps. Kayak Fishing Fever is where you not only ride a kayak but catch dinner while you’re at it. SingapoRediscovers Vouchers will allow you to enjoy 10% off this thrilling experience, there’s nothing like your first catch.
You know what they say, you’ll have a skill for life!
I’ve only scratched the surface of the promotions under SingapoRediscovers and it turns out there is much to be discovered! With dining and shopping vouchers up for grabs, maybe we can hold off travelling for a while.
