Whether the little ones are dreaming of a fun-filled road trip or delicious treats, we’ve got you and your family covered with great recommendations for a fun weekend ahead!
Our nation’s 54th birthday bash is just around the corner! If you don’t already know, there is also a precious 4-day long weekend from 9th – 12th August 2019 as well.
While it might be a little too late or expensive to book tickets for a short overseas getaway, you can still have an amazing time with your loved ones in our beautiful garden city. Get inspired by these ideas for 3 family-friendly activities for the long weekend!
Drive away on a fun road trip!
Escape the hustle and bustle of modern living with a fun road trip within the island. If you’re feeling adventurous, try exploring Kampong Lorong, Buangkok — the last surviving kampong in mainland Singapore! It is one of Singapore’s well-kept secrets, remaining undisturbed by the onslaught of development that towers over it. Set amid lush flora and fauna, the adults will be filled with nostalgic wonder as they remember the good ‘ole days of what Singapore used to be. The little ones will also have so much fun discovering the great outdoors and even watching livestock such as chickens roam freely! The breathtaking change in scenery will revitalise even the weariest spirits to take on new challenges upon returning home.
If you’re looking to explore Kampong Lorong and beyond, you’ll definitely want your loved ones to travel in comfort. Rent your ride with our partner BKW-Rent-A Car to earn LinkPoints for every spend, up to 20% discounts and more on your booking!
Pack your own picnic!
Family picnics are the perfect bonding activity to create lasting memories. Many hands make for light work, so get the little ones involved in the entire process! From shopping for groceries to whipping up a storm in the kitchen, they’ll love preparing their own creations to chow down on later. You could have an indoor picnic at home and watch the festive celebrations unfold on your television, or venture into the great outdoors for a meal on warm grass with cool air!
If you’re looking for a park in a more central location, head down to Singapore Botanic Gardens — a UNESCO World Heritage Site with plenty of ground for a picnic and a spot of outdoor playtime. Alternatively, the quaint Chinese and Japanese Gardens is a pleasant respite filled with unique architecture, far away from the city buzz!
Savour what makes Singapore home, truly!
It’s no doubt that Singaporeans love to eat — it’s almost our national pastime! This National Day, take the opportunity to indulge in at least one leisurely meal with your family. Kaki Makan plates up mouth-watering reinterpretations of authentic halal delights — catch a whiff of their signature Crispy Lemongrass Chicken Nasi Lemak, stacks of aromatic dim sum and more! Linger over hearty conversations with the young and old in your family for an unforgettable weekend.
