Family going on a holiday with a budget -SingSaver

Psst: Tips in here on how to save more with the right credit cards

School’s out, fun’s in! The June holidays is a marvellous time to get together with your family, friends and, well, to breathe. Give yourself a big pat on the back for making it halfway through 2018. Now, you may have decided to stay put our Little Red Dot rather than explore the great big world this year, and it’s actually a pretty good idea. There’s so much to enjoy and do as a family. From getting on a cable car, discovering Singapore’s old and new playgrounds, exploring a nature reserve, let us show you what you can do with your family and kids without breaking the bank. Ready? Let’s go.

Cable Car -SingSaver

Take in the scenic views (that’s always therapeutic) and then make your way to the beach (where you could spend all day for free!)

Singapore Philatelic Museum: The Little Prince, Behind the Story

“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.” — Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

Offering valuable insights and wisdom to both adults and children, The Little Prince has been a well-loved book among many. Thanks to Singapore Philatelic Museum, we can all now discover the origins of the story as well as the French author behind his creation, Antoine de Saint-Exupéry. Let your imagination run wild — if you dare.

Singapore's Playground -SingSaver

National Museum of Singapore: Singapore’s Playgrounds 1930-2030

Anyone remembers the iconic dragon playground of the 1970s? Do a quick Google search and you are guaranteed to feel pangs of nostalgia. Today, our playgrounds have become more modernised (buh-bye, sand playgrounds), but that doesn’t change how they have contributed to so many of our fond childhood memories.

Thanks to the National Museum of Singapore, we will get to relive those memories and explore future playgrounds at this exhibition. Both children and parents are bound to get something out of this exhibition. And, it’s free for all. Let’s play.

Exhibition is until 2 July 2018. More details here.

Address: 23-B Coleman Street, Singapore 179807

Price: Free for all

Time: 10am – 7pm

Family sitting at the edge of a bridge -SingSaver

Explore Nature: Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve

If museums aren’t your cup of tea, what about heading outdoors to the Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve for a little hike? Nature, after all, has been said to be the best kind of medicine. Fresh air, open spaces — what’s not to love? We hear it’s a pretty good cure for stress, too. Spend some quality time in nature your family and we bet everyone will be smiling all the way home. Plus, this is going to be an educational family outing since this is Singapore’s first ASEAN Heritage Park, filled with rich biodiversity and an extensive mangrove forest. Find out more here.
