Remember the time when short getaways were so easily available and travelling overseas was a breeze? Those were happy times before Covid-19 reared its ugly head and ruined holiday travel plans almost everywhere.
Although we’re still in Phase 2, we are taking little baby steps towards Phase 3 for sure. Even then, everyone is still feeling a little stir crazy from the lack of travel. Well, there’s no better time to make the best of a bad situation and explore what’s in our own backyard, especially as the government recently announced that all Singaporeans aged 18 and above will receive $100 worth of SingapoRediscovers vouchers.
What are SingapoRediscovers Vouchers?
Tongue-twisting name aside, SingapoRediscovers Vouchers are cash vouchers that can be used in Singapore on the following:
- Tickets to leisure attractions
They extend to all licensed hotels, tourist attractions and tours that have been approved by the Singapore Tourism Board to open or operate. The vouchers cannot be used at restaurants and bars, nor can they be used to pay for your shopping. That means yes to a staycation at a five star hotel or taking your family to the zoo, and no to binge drinking at Orchard Towers.
You must be 18 years old and above to receive your SingapoRediscovers vouchers. Younger folks don’t really lose out on this tourism initiative because each of them gets to enjoy a $10 subsidy at attractions and for tours. Every adult can purchase up to six child or youth tickets at subsidised prices.
Want to learn new things about our little island or enjoy an offbeat activity in the company of others? Then you might want to take a tour led by a licensed tour guide.
