Best activities with student discounts 

Remember a time where we wanted to be adults as soon as possible? Oh, how wrong we were. One thing that we fail to realise about being adults is that we will lose all our student discount privileges. Looking back, we would give anything to be able to live in that era again.

For those who are still students, we have compiled 9 best activities with student discounts for you to save a pretty penny.
