Here’s How You Can Have A Fantastic Vacation Right Here in Singapore!

·5 min read

Holidays. Just the thought of it leaves adults in a dreamy state of euphoria and children squealing in excitement. The plane ride, checking into a hotel, tourist attractions, the sun, the sand between your toes, cocktails in hand and as the Italians say, il dolce far niente  – the sweetness of doing nothing, is undeniably a luxury we spend the entire year dreaming of!

A family holiday is incredibly important, as it is one of the best ways to relax and rejuvenate. It gives you the opportunity to take a complete break from the daily grind and to reconnect with yourself and those who matter most. It’s when you strengthen family bonds and make beautiful memories that last a lifetime.

But alas, let’s face it. Travelling is not an option for the time being. In fact, with the announcement from National Development Minister Lawrence Wong that “Singaporeans are unlikely to be able to travel for leisure this year, though essential business travel will be possible,” it seems like the travel plans will have to take a backseat for a long time coming.

The situation does seem bleak but do not despair, for you still can have a fantastic family getaway sans the plane ride!

Dining @rwsentosa  

Food, glorious food! You know what they say about us Singaporeans, that eating is our national pastime so what is a getaway without indulging in some delectable delights?

How do sizzling platters of succulent grilled meats and seafood served hot off the smoky Barbie and (the restaurant’s signature!) freshly-prepared, stone hearth flatbreads from wood-fired ovens sound to you? If that tantalises your taste buds, then head over to Osia Steak and Seafood Grill!

If you’re into Asian food, make your way to Ocean Restaurant for a mod-Asian dinner for two in the company of graceful mantra rays, mighty sharks and over 100,000 marine animals of the S.E.A. aquarium. It’s bound to be a one of a kind experience!

Or if you’re looking for a fine-casual dining experience, complete your staycation with a dinner at the One-Michelin starred table65, famed for its out-of-this-world gastronomic creations, theatrical dining experience and charismatic chefs who will charm your socks off!

In addition, even enhancing air purity in three steps: 600 air ionisers installed, HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) filters trap 95% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, and UV-C treatment kills viruses passing through its light rays.

So there you go, mums and dads, the complete guide to your vacation right in the comfort of home. Not being able to travel can take a huge toll on families that are used to holidaying, so it’s time to get out there and do something fun with the whole family.
