To quote Vanessa Carlton’s hit song, “A Thousand Miles”, Cause I need you, and I miss you
and now I wonder…
…when I can travel again.
No thanks to COVID-19.
But maybe not everything is terrible, especially since next month, every Singaporean will get a S$100 voucher.
These will be distributed in S$10 denominations and can be used for staycations, attractions and tours.
You also need to be 18 years old and above to get them.
Reader: Wait, there’s places to tour in Singapore?
Well, there’s enough that we can compile a list of 10 pretty huat SingapoRediscovers promotions to consider while planning how you want to spend those vouchers.
1. Virtual Reality Theme Park
We start off with the author’s bias.
For those who didn’t want to go out, but still want to experience powerful technology, you can consider the “Extreme VR Wonders” package at Sentosa.
The package goes at S$100 for two people and includes access to any three of the 11 rides available.
Other parts of the package include:
- 1 Coconut Shake or 1 scoop icecream per pax
- 1 hr Gogreen Cycle Bicycle Rental
- Marrybrown’s $10 Meal Voucher
- Quentin’s Bar & Restaurant’s Ginkli Nona DIY Cocktail Kit + 1-for-1 Ginkli Nona Cocktail Drink Voucher
You can purchase the package over here. Do note that you have to redeem it by 27 December 2020.
2. Southern Island Tour and Cable Car Bundle
And who said Singapore has nothing to discover? YachtCruiseSG begs to differ.
For S$100 per adult, you’ll have a 2.5 hr private yacht tour to several historical islands.
These include places like Kusu Island, which holds within it a Chinese Temple and a Malay Shrine.
You’ll also get round trip cable car ticket for both Sentosa and the Mount Faber Line.
So after the tour, you can go for some cable car and chill.
You can purchase the bundle here, and the promotion is valid till 31 March 2020.
3. Gardens By The Bay
Maybe sometimes you don’t want to do anything too crazy.
Maybe you just want to take in some plants, fresh air and relax. If so, you can check out this promo from Gardens By the Bay.
It includes an admission ticket to both the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest.
And after you’re done, each person is entitled to one Cocktail or Mocktail at Lavo Italian Restaurant and Rooftop Bar.
Just for that extra atas feel.
The price goes for S$35 per adult and the promo ends on 31 December.
You can call for a booking at 9665 6292 or 8873 6500 or email [email protected]
4. Pulau Ubin And Chek Jawa Wetlands
Gardens By the Bay is a more modern attraction.
So how about we take it back to old school?
CTM Singapore is offering a guided tour of Pulau Ubin as well as the Chek Jawa Wetlands starting from S$58.
The offer lasts till 31 March 2021.
The four-hour tour also includes.
- One way transportation from Home (Singapore) to Changi Point Ferry Terminal
- One way Bumboat from Changi Point Ferry terminal to Pulau Ubin
- Coconut drink refreshment (one coconut per participant)
You can call 6416 6829 or email [email protected] for more details regarding the booking.
This might even be a new experience for younger Singaporeans!
5. Joo Chiat & The Peranakans
If you’re a Southeast Asian, especially in Singapore, there’s a chance that you’ve been exposed to Peranakan culture.
Especially the food.
But why not found out just a little bit more at this three-day two-nights staycation?
The staycation is inclusive of a tour of Joo Chiat, hotel breakfast and even a return private transfer from one place of your choice.
And it only costs S$148, available until 31 December.
You can book the staycation here.
6. The Sultan #InstaGlam Staycation & Walking Tour Bundle
Continuing onto another staycation, this time with The Sultan.
It’ll take you along Bugis, Kampong Glam and Waterloo Street accompanied by a tour guide.
However, do keep in mind that this will only happen on Saturdays from 9.30am to 11.30am and 4.00pm to 6.00pm.
It also only has a maximum slot of 10 people.
You should contact [email protected] for the discounted price after booking your stay.
Currently, the cheapest room on the weekend for one adult is going from S$135.
7. Trick Eye Museum Package
Luckily, this promotion isn’t a trick.
The Trickeye Museum is providing a combo package that allows you to enter the museum and unlimited rides on both Faber Peak and Sentosa Cable Lines.
For adults, the usual price is cut almost in half from the S$70 dollars to only S$37.
Yes, just when you thought that attractions would increase their prices due to the vouchers, the prices dropped instead.
The offer ends on 27 December 2020, and you can contact [email protected] for your three preferable dates.
8. Sentosa Get Thrilled! At AJ Hackett
Maybe you’re the kind that’s a little more adventurous.
If that’s the case, you can grab your Get Thrilled! Pass at S$106 per person.
The pass will let you into AJ Hackett, where you can choose two of the following three attractions.
- AJ Hackett Giant Swing with 20% off F&B
- Mega Adventure Park Megazip with ice cream
- iFly The Teaser Package (1 Skydive – Locals only) + $20 Merchandise voucher + 50% off merchandise (photos & video combos)
The promotion ends on 31 March 2021 and you can get the pass here.
9. Pulau Hantu Three-Person Diving Package
We may have mentioned a yacht tour earlier but what about taking to the waters yourself?
Cuddle Fish Divers is offering a promotion till 28 February 2021 for a group of three to go diving at Pulau Hantu.
Going without a guide will cost S$324 for the group while going with a guide will increase the price to S$435.
Renting their equipment will also cost an additional $75.
But since you’re going as a group, the cost really isn’t as painful at first glance.
10. Capri Great Escape
Sometimes you just need to get away and just do nothing.
Maybe just stay somewhere with your friends and chill out.
The Capri Great Escape offers guests room from S$168 per night, not per person.
Time to jio that friend ASAP.
And by that we mean it’s because reservations are going fast and the offer only lasts till 30 December 2020.
Ready to start planning for December till the end of June next year?
