While we take safe distancing in Singapore seriously, we also want you to keep calm and take this chance to slow down. If every individual plays his or her part in keeping a distance in public spaces, we’re coming together in a responsible manner to prevent the virus from spreading further.

Here are 5 tips on what else we can do in Singapore while keeping a safe distance.

1. Stand in line for some awesome Singaporean snacks while keeping 1m apart from next person

Choose from Irvin’s salted egg fish skin, The Golden Duck’s chilli crab seaweed tempura, Ooh Lala mala chips and dig into this–chilli crab cookies from the Cookie Museum.

2. Go into open spaces and enjoy the sunset/sunrise hikes and strolls along the parks

Get some fresh air and sunshine in our iconic green spaces from the Southern Ridges to MacRitchie Reservoir. Clear your mind and create a positive vibe especially during uncertain times.

3. Go digital and explore our experiences virtually instead

Check out virtual tours of hotels and museums such as the Singapore Philatelic Museum and Sofitel Singapore Sentosa Resort & Spa. Tour the inside grounds of St Andrew’s Cathedral and feel like royalty in the stately rooms and halls of The Istana.

4. Take away your food, order online, or make your own Singaporean dishes

Whip up some classic Singaporean food and drinks while staying indoors such as chilli crab, chicken rice and Singapore Sling. Or order online popular local bites such as ayam penyet (smashed chicken) and bak kut teh (peppery pork soup) for a no-frills, safe and authentic local foodie experience.

5. Slow down and chill out in quaint cafés

Enjoy a cuppa in cafes located in quiet and off-the-beaten-track neighbourhoods–Boufe, Riders and Wildseed are just some recommendations–and away from the bustle. Do remember to be seated at least 1 metre apart from the next table and ensure your dining group does not exceed 10 people.
