It’s no secret that our tourist attractions and hotels are suffering during the Covid-19 pandemic due to a lack of tourists. So the government’s SingapoRediscovers campaign, launched in July, is indeed timely to help the local tourism industry.
Plus, it has just been announced that for every Singaporean aged 18 and above in 2020, the government is giving away $100 worth of SingapoRediscovers vouchers that can be used on attraction tickets, tours and staycations. They will be given in $10 denominations in November, just in time for the December school holidays.
Not bad right? The mechanism to redeem vouchers has not been announced yet, but already, there are many promotions listed on the SingapoRediscovers website. Let’s see what are the places you can rediscover in Singapore with your $100!
