We’re more than halfway through 2020 and being able to travel still seems to be a far off dream as the pandemic surges on. Well, there’s still the option of taking a ‘Singapoliday’ as the Singapore Tourism Board’s (STB) new campaign encourages us to rediscover the country and help support the badly hit tourism sector. 

Just in time as well as STB has approved the reopening of some of Singapore’s top tourist attractions such as Sentosa's Universal Studios Singapore, Wildlife Reserves Singapore and Gardens by the Bay, with safety measures in place and promotions on tickets to attract visitors.
