Rediscovering Singapore: 6 Senior-Friendly Attractions for a Fun Day Out
Jetting off on a holiday never sounded like a bad idea. But with the changes brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, going abroad remains a pipe dream for many of us here in Singapore. But don’t fret just yet. Your next escapade in Singapore is within reach!
From 1 December 2020 till 30 June 2021, all Singaporeans aged 18 and above will receive $100 worth of digital SingapoRediscovers vouchers. We bring you six senior-friendly attractions for the whole family to enjoy.
1. Singapore Flyer
Serving you panoramic views of the Central Business District (CBD), Marina Bay and the South China Sea, the 165m-tall Ferris wheel is the perfect spot for your family to catch a bird's eye view of the city. The Singapore Flyer is fully equipped with wheelchair-friendly facilities and services, making it convenient for an intergenerational outing. Remember to make your bookings online to secure a slot and keep to a maximum of five persons for each group.
2. Gardens By The Bay
Singapore is more than a concrete jungle, and Gardens By The Bay proves just that. Take a scenic stroll with your loved ones and relish in the lush greenery this nature park has to offer. The 101-hectare land boasts Cooled Conservatories like the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest, an observatory, and multiple garden attractions. With wheelchair and stroller rentals available at $2 per day, it provides activities suited for the entire family.
3. Guided tour of Pulau Ubin
Take a trip back to the 60s when you go on a guided tour of Pulau Ubin! Known to be home to the last few kampongs in our country, Pulau Ubin has lots to discover. From exploring marine wildlife at Chek Jawa wetlands to setting up a tent by the designated camping spots, this cultural heritage makes a perfect day trip for the family! (Tip: Pack insect spray!)
4. River Safari
Bask in the sun and revel in the fun at River Safari! Make fond new memories as you discover the world’s largest freshwater aquarium, drop by the House of Kai Kai and Jia Jia, or even jump on a boat ride to uncover animals from the Amazon. You can also look forward to navigating around with ease, as the park offers complimentary wheelchair rental, and electric scooter rental at an hourly rate.
5. Nature & Heritage, A Sentosa Story Guided Tour
Unearth a side of Sentosa you’ve never seen before in the Nature & Heritage, A Sentosa Story Guided Tour. Start your journey at HarbourFront Centre and hop on a cable car ride before you arrive at Imbiah Lookout. Here, you’ll get to visit Singapore's only fully restored military fort, Fort Siloso, where you’ll find fortified military structures and tunnels. What’s more, the guided tours are available in English and Mandarin!
6. Heritage Discovery & Fun for Active Ageing Package
It’s never been more timely to go gai gai with your family! From Madame Tussauds, to the Gai Gai and Sentosa Island Bus Tours, you can make a day escape and relive old memories when you opt for the Heritage Discovery & Fun for Active Ageing package. Plus, you’d get a chance to walk around Mount Faber Park and savour the stunning view from Faber Peak where it oversees the city and the southern islands (and some say Batam). 😉
