Paint the town red this weekend
Promotions you can take advantage of this long NDP holiday.
As the long National Day holiday approaches, a crazy amount of programmes and promotions have been lined up for you to unleash your inner kiasu Singaporean.
Check out these offers, and make the best use of the long weekend while you celebrate Singapore’s 50th birthday!
SG50 per cent off
Singapore residents get 50 per cent discount on admission during the entire month of August. Visitors to the four wildlife parks – Jurong Bird Park, Night Safari, River Safari and Singapore Zoo – on Aug 7 to 10 can get a free SG50 animal-themed woven tote bag at park retail stores (limited to 1 bag per visitor, while stocks last).
Marina Bay Sands
Sampan rides along The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands are going at half price over the long weekend. More importantly, Singaporeans and PRs can also enjoy free admission to the ArtScience Museum and Marina Bay Sands Skating Rink (Terms and conditions apply).
Gardens by the Bay
Singaporeans enjoy 50 per cent off tickets to the Flower Dome and Cloud Forest from Aug 7 to 10. You should also catch the special edition of the Garden Rhapsody music and light show at 7.45pm, 8.45pm and 9.30pm.
50 per cent discount still not enough? How about 100 per cent free!
Science Centre Singapore
Madame Tussauds Singapore
Anyone over the age of 50 enters for free in the month of August. While that does not refer to most of us, it is a good opportunity to introduce our parents (and grandparents) to One Direction, whose wax figures are here only until early October.
No tickets to NDP? Watch the parade at these venues instead!
Live screening of the NDP (4pm to 8.30pm) on Aug 9 on the Green Roof. The venue will also be host to The Families for Life picnic on Aug 7 to 8 (8am to 11am) that will feature carnival activities, a Black Knights aerial display, inflatable bouncy castles, and a mobile café.
Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site will hold a three-day carnival from Aug 7, which will culminate in a live screening of the NDP on Sunday. The concert at Shaw Foundation Symphony Stage will feature local acts, such as Rui En, Olivia Ong, Taufik Batisah, Corrinne May and The Sam Willows.
And that is not all!
A detailed listing of the Jubilee Weekend events and activities can be found on the “Celebrate SG50” app for iOS and Android, which includes access to special retail and F&B promotions.
Have a great, long, and very Singaporean weekend!
