Image credit

Counting to #SG54, this year’s Singapore’s National Day, the one that we’ve all waited for, falls on Friday. Everyone is looking forward to some long weekend bliss with Hari Raya Haji landing on Sunday with an off-in-lieu on Monday. While some people may want to stay and relish the fireworks in Singapore, it may also be an ideal time for a quick stint abroad. Jumping at the opportunity without having to take days off at work, perhaps this is among the most popular travel dates for many Singaporeans. Having said that, airfare will cost more than normal for common destinations. 

Fortunately, you may not need to skip the town as there’re plenty of fun things that can be done in Singapore with your friends and family. These gorgeous spots and fun activities in Singapore make excellent grounds for exploration or a sheer exuberance, delight, and relaxing weekend.
