The March school holidays are finally here, and many places are having huge discounts.

With nine days away from school, here are nine places to go with great promotions and special events! 

1. Free entry to Changi Jewel’s Canopy Park

For everyone like me, who has only looked at the top floor of Changi Jewel from a distance, our time has finally come.

The Canopy Park, which spans most of the rooftop and features the Discovery Slides and Petal Gardens, is now open for free!

To make the deal even more sweet, tickets to other attractions like the Mirror Maze and Sky Nets are also going at half price with a receipt from any Jewel outlet until the end of this month.

The hygiene-conscious need not fear too – when Youth.SG visited on March 1, Jewel staff were providing all guests entering the Canopy Walk with hand sanitisers for use.

2. Half price Gardens by the Bay tickets

It’s Cherry Blossom season at Gardens by the Bay’s Flower Dome, and what better way to celebrate it than with ticket prices as low as $6?

The 50 per cent discount on tickets for Singapore residents is not just limited to the Flower Dome, which is currently running the Sakura Matsuri: Tale of the Peach Boy Floral Display, but also the Cloud Forest, Floral Fantasy and Supertree Observatory.


Complementing the cherry blossoms are traditional Japanese performances and displays, including these beautiful Torii Gates.

3. Free entry to Sentosa and certain attractions

Sentosa opens its doors for free over the whole of the March school holidays.

Once on the island, there are a number of free attractions such as Fort Siloso, the Fort Siloso Skywalk, and the new Magical Shores at Siloso – Singapore’s first multi-sensory, interactive beach light art attraction.


Magical Shores runs from 7.30pm to 10.30pm all year round, and is inspired by diverse elements ranging from water flow to marine creatures.

4. Over 70 per cent off tickets to Wild Wild Wet

From now till April 30, Day Passes to Wild Wild Wet are slashed from the usual $32 to just $9, which is a real steal.

Now I know a big question at the back of everyone’s mind is: how safe it is to do water activities in this period?

Infectious diseases specialist Dr Leong Hoe Nam answered: “Contact with water would kill the virus. Adequately chlorinated water in pools is known to kill most respiratory viruses.”

It’s safe to go swimming, so let’s go about our lives as normally as possible.


There are also other F&B promotions at Downtown East running till March 15.

5. One-for-one tickets at the Singapore Science Centre

Purchase one or more Singapore Science Centre admission tickets online and get 50 per cent off your total purchase.

Their Science Educators are also organising special workshops (separate ticketing) like ‘Virus or Bacteria?’ that will teach how to make your own antibacterial and anti-viral hand sanitiser that you can bring home.


The promotion is on from now till March 22.

6. Free admission to the National Gallery
