Bookmark these kid-friendly things to do in June 2024

While school’s out, take this chance to rest and prepare for the latter half of 2024. Who knows, perhaps you’ll find these kid-friendly things to do in June to be equally as rejuvenating for yourself as you kick back and watch the rowdy little ones do their thing.

Should you be planning a last minute trip overseas, Malaysia’s the most logical and feasible destination, so have a look at these things to do in Desaru. If you just have to head to the EU for a grecian vacation, consider these Santorini dupes near Singapore instead. Else, we’ve heard Penyabong’s a great choice for some peace and quiet.
