While you are in Singapore enjoying and exploring our myriad of experiences, it is important to stay safe, take the necessary health precautions and look out for one another. The health of locals and visitors are our top priority during this period, and you may encounter added precautions at our tourism businesses.

Here are 5 simple tips to travel responsibly while in Singapore.

1) Practice good personal hygiene

We know you can’t wait to tuck into that bowl of laksa (spicy coconut milk-based noodle soup) or chilli crab, but remember to wash your hands with soap before and after every meal. Practising good personal hygiene protects you and creates a clean environment for everyone.

You should also wash your hands frequently after visiting washrooms and/or when your hands are dirtied after coughing or sneezing.

2) Plan your itinerary and pack ahead

Planning beforehand is always helpful.

To ensure that your plans are not disrupted, do check online for details such as opening hours of attractions and restaurants you are visiting. You may find such information on our website, especially in the See and Do, and Dining sections. Download our Visit Singapore Travel Guide app on the App Store or Google Play to help you better plan too.

Please pack sufficiently for your trip and have on-hand necessities and personal items such as masks, thermometers, water bottles, antibacterial wipes and hand sanitisers.

3) Look out for your travel companions

Should you or any of your travel companions feel unwell, please consult your hotel concierge for the nearest medical practitioners and seek medical attention immediately.

Wear a mask if you feel unwell or when you display respiratory symptoms such as a cough or runny nose.

More importantly, remember to look out for one another and be mindful of your own health at all times.

4) Stay informed on the latest developments

Even as you are out and about, you should keep yourself updated with information from official sources.

5) Take it slow

This is perhaps the best time to remind yourself to slow down and smell the roses.

Take your time to explore our museums and galleries and keep calm in the company of art and history. Go on a leisurely walk in the outdoors such as Coney Island or the Southern Ridges, for some much-needed Vitamin D.

Remind yourself to stay safe, appreciate the moments, and travel responsibly.
