The holiday season might be sadly over, but there are still plenty of things you can do this weekend that will bring you back into the holiday mood, even if just for a while. 

Here are five things to do this weekend (Jan 8 to Jan 10): 

1. Visit the Jurong Bird Park

When the Jurong Bird Park first opened in 1971, ticket prices were at $2.50. Now in 2021, as part of its golden jubilee celebrations, the bird park will be offering its entry tickets at just $2.50 each! 

The usual ticket price costs S$32 for an adult and S$21 for children aged three to 12 years old. This promotion is applicable for online purchases only until Jan 31 and is limited to purchase up to four tickets per online transaction. Book your tickets online here.

2. Have a nice night out at GBTB

After a long hiatus since April 2020 due to the circuit breaker, Gardens by the Bay is bringing back its free light & sound show Garden Rhapsody

There will be up to 10 different shows with different musical soundtrack and choreography for the lights on the Supertrees. The 15-minute show will play from Jan 8, at 7.45pm and 8.45pm daily.

Wag & Wild, which is over 19,000 square feet in size, is Singapore’s largest dog water park. The park features a large pool, flamingo floats and mushroom waterfalls, where dog owners are allowed to be in the water with their dogs as well.

With travel restrictions still in place, the closest thing we can get to being in Japan is by dining at Japan Rail Cafe. 

From now till the end of the month, the cafe will be collaborating with Japan Airlines (JAL) to provide diners with in-flight meals in the cafe. You can choose between the Salmon Miso Yaki ($25) and Chicken Takiawase Tamago ($23), as well as try out JAL’s Signature Earl Grey Chiffon Cake as dessert. 

The cafe opens daily at 11am and is located at Guoco Tower, 5 Wallich Street, #01-20, S078883. 

5. Spend a day at Sentosa

Wanna go out with your friends but save money at the same time? Then heading down to Sentosa is probably a good idea as the island is extending its free entry promotion until the end of March 2021. 

You can enter the island via the Sentosa Express from VivoCity, by driving in, or walking/cycling on the Sentosa boardwalk. Sentosa offers a wider variety of attractions including the Adventure Cove Water Park, Siloso Beach and Universal Studios Singapore.
