Don’t know what to do with your $100 vouchers? Fret not! Here’s how to spend your vouchers for a wonderful family day out in Singapore
It’s over a year since Singapore went into the circuit breaker period and, well, life just stood still. No more gatherings in large groups, bookings before going anywhere, no more overseas travel… so what’s there to do in Singapore? Well, plenty, if you ask us!
And psst – your SingapoRediscovers vouchers expire on 30 June, so our top tip is to use them up during the school holidays!
