A Round-up of Local Attractions to Visit In Place of Overseas Travel During COVID-19

With the new travel restrictions implemented by the Singapore government due to the recent development of COVID-19 globally, it is safe to say that our travel plans would be put on hold indefinitely until the situation gets better for everyone.

While we may not be able to travel abroad to experience fun activities, that does not necessarily mean that the only activity left to do here in Singapore is to stay home and chill. In a recent post from Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong,
Singaporeans were encouraged to engage in a bit of local tourism by visiting some of our star attractions or even consider a staycation at some of our fine local hotels.

And, it seems that Prime Minister Lee isn’t the only one encouraging us locals to continue making the best of the current COVID-19 situation. Many of the tourist attractions and hotels here in Singapore have also come up with special offers for locals to enjoy during this period. Here’s a round-up of the offers available.
