With sunnier prospects on the horizon and better days ahead, now’s a great time to start planning your return visit to Singapore.

While social distancing and hygiene are still of paramount importance, there are many activities that you can participate in once you have the opportunity to visit.

Here are some ways to rediscover the activities you know and love while keeping safety and social distancing in mind.

1. Stand in line for Singaporean snacks

Whether you’re looking to indulge in Irvin’s salted egg fish skinGolden Duck’s chilli crab seaweed tempura or chilli crab cookies from the Cookie Museum, do remember that social distancing measures are still in place. Keep at least one metre apart while queuing for your favourite snacks.

2. Enjoy sunset strolls, sunrise hikes and serene spaces

Get some fresh air and sunshine in our iconic green spaces from the Southern Ridges to MacRitchie Reservoir. Clear your mind, soak in the positive vibes and gain a deeper appreciation for the natural beauty of our city in a garden. Remember to mask up at all times, unless you’re engaging in strenuous exercise.

3. Explore virtual worlds

Enjoy our vibrant culture from the comfort of your living room, or stay close to Singapore from miles away, with a myriad of online experiences from some of our island’s top attractions.

Many of these attractions are now open for operation, so do pay them a visit on your next trip to Singapore. Remember to pre-book a visiting slot to attractions like Gardens by the Bay or Universal Studios Singapore to avoid disappointment.

Get psyched for your next trip to Singapore by checking out these digital museum tours, walking on the wild side with a virtual experience by Mandai Wildlife Reserve, or touring the compounds and interior of the majestic St Andrew’s Cathedral

4. Enjoy great grub from home

With restaurants now able to serve dine-in customers, you may be experiencing snaking queues at many of our island’s eateries, especially on the weekend.

As an alternative to queuing, many of these restaurants still offer online delivery services and takeaway, which means you don’t have to wait to sate your cravings. Instead, indulge in the iconic nasi lemak (rice cooked in coconut milk, served with an array of side dishes) from The Coconut Club, or sample Michelin-starred Western fare from Burnt Ends.

5. Chill out in quaint cafés

Take the time to engage in a bout of mindful travel, as you unwind at our many charming cafes.

Enjoy an aromatic cup of coffee located in off-the-beaten-track neighbourhoods–Boufe, Riders and Wildseed are just some recommendations. Do remember to be seated at least one metre apart from the next table and ensure your dining group does not exceed eight people. Only remove your masks when eating or drinking, for the safety of yourself and others.
