The blessed gift of a long weekend is coming to us this Easter weekend. While it is easy to take advantage of the extra day off by binge-watching Netflix or catching up on some sleep, why not try something more exciting this weekend instead? (Promise: You won’t see any more egg puns such as “egg-citing” as they are a sin that should be made punishable with a trial by ordeal involving rotten eggs.) Read on to find what is worth checking out this Easter weekend in Singapore.
1. Go on holiday. There is still time!
Every person I know keeps a calendar of long weekends, and plan for their leave months ahead to take advantage of these long weekends. If you’ve managed to get more days off on top of the long weekend, then why not take that trip to Melbourne, Tokyo or Amsterdam?
If you are looking for something more unique, we have a great guide to some of the most exciting remote hotels in the world. Even if you didn’t manage to secure any extra time off, 3 days is plenty of time to have a great vacation if you are smart and plan wisely. Instead of heading to Bali, Taiwan or some of the more popular options for a quick getaway, try going somewhere you’d never consider such as Malacca, Cambodia or Myanmar. Or if you decide not to travel, perhaps a staycation with your friends and family is just what you need.
2. For the kids: you can’t miss the Easter Egg Hunt
An obvious choice, but one that many overlook in favour of other options such as going overseas. But if you have young children and you are keen for them to get them off their tablets, an Easter egg hunt can be perfect for some quality family bonding time. After all, kids love to one-up each other and winning at a treasure hunt like this can be a memory to cherish. Here are some places hosting Easter egg hunts this year.
Bollywood Veggies Easter Egg Hunt
Located at Kranji and hosted between 30 March to 1 April, participants can go on an Easter egg hunt in a large food forest and win some prizes if you find enough eggs.
Eggciting (sigh) Forest Adventure
The Forest Adventure at the Bedok reservoir park will also host an Easter egg treasure hunt between 30 March to 1 April. What makes this different is that the park has a rope obstacle course and will have a costumed Easter bunny to lead participants in the hunt. Tickets must be booked at their website.
Egg-citing Easter with Peter Rabbit at Jurong Bird Park
A uniquely themed Easter egg hunt will be held at the Jurong Bird Park on the 24, 25, 30, 31 March and 1 April. Between 10 am and 4 pm, kids can go hunting for eggs and stand to win prizes such as Peter Rabbit premiums and an annual Friends of Bird Park Family Membership for two adults and one child. For Easter 2018 at Jurong Bird Park, students from Pathlight School’s Art Faculty have hand-painted 10 super-sized Easter eggs for Jurong Bird Park. These one-metre eggs will be on display at Birdz of Play and Penguin Coast.
3. Be a kid again and try the Trampoline Park: Bounce
If you’ve ever wanted to try being an over-sized jackrabbit, definitely head to Bounce Singapore and bounce away to your heart’s content. Open to both kids and adults, a wide variety of trampoline zones and obstacle courses ensure that you will be kept entertained for a long time. From 15 March to 30 June, students can enjoy double the fun at a fraction of the price with Double Time: two hours’ entry for $25 (just $4 for the second hour). There is even a ninja-warrior styled obstacle course for the more hardcore (and fit) visitors to challenge themselves in beating the course in the shortest time possible. And since it is Easter, an Easter bunny will show up from time to time at the trampoline park to bounce….. hop? with the guests. Visualizing that in my mind is absolutely hilarious and I can’t wait to see it in person.

4. Visit Universal Studios and the S.E.A Aquarium
Head to Universal Studios Singapore to catch the cute creatures from DreamWorks Animation’s Trolls at TrollsTopia (9 March to 29 April) in action. Guests will be able to step into the colourful world of the Dreamworks Trolls as they perform musical shows, a dance party, and virtual reality games.
Ticketing: Trollstopia is included with all ticket purchases. Prices start at $72 with discounts for packages and credit cards available.
5. Watch a play: Alice in Wonderland by L’arietta
Come play with Alice and her curious friends this Easter weekend (29th March – 1st April) with “Alice in Wonderland” by L’arietta Productions. The 75-minute operatic adaptation welcomes you to a magical garden, filled with nostalgic toys and modern twists. Local chamber opera company L’arietta Productions offers a colourful take on Lewis Carroll’s classic, Alice in Wonderland in the second half of “Season of Literary Works”. Composed by Robert Chauls and premiered in 1978, it was the second most performed American opera in the United States during the 1981-82 season. L’arietta will give this beloved opera its Southeast Asian Premiere.
Pricing: $40 (Standard), $25 (Students), $105 (2 kids + 2 kids at heart Bundle Deal)
6. Have an Easter worthy feast
It’s Easter, throw your resolution and diets out the window and indulge in one of the many Easter themed buffets or menus offered by many Hotels, restaurants, and cafes across Singapore. Many places such as the Parkroyal on Pickering, Shangri-La, Sky22 at The Mariott Singapore Novena, Open Farm Community and so much more will have special menus, buffets, brunches and more. Some will also host Easter Egg hunts with prizes to be won as well. Or, if eating out doesn’t appeal, why not learn how to cook and have an Easter party meal at your place?
