Best SingapoRediscovers experiences and deals

“SingapoRediscovers” and “Singapoliday” are 2 fairly new words we’ve been hearing a lot recently. It’s all for good reason, of course – we’re sorely missing the glory days of free-and-easy travel, and we’re constantly on the lookout for new things to do to keep our spirits up during Phase 2. 

Thankfully, there are a ton of gems – both old and new – to rediscover without having to hop onboard a flight. As the government has now allocated $320million for tourism credits, check out these SingapRediscovers activities and deals to help boost the local economy while recreating holiday-like experiences in our own backyard.

Note: Although some promos in this article have ended, these attractions are still a great way to plan how to spend your $100 SingapoRediscovers vouchers. The final list of attractions you can spend the vouchers on will be made available by the Singapore Tourism Board in December 2020.
