Sail Away



 Daily Dose: Sail Away, sail away, sail away

Sailing is the only way you can have an 'overseas' trip now (cable car not counted). This month, HK was supposed to be the only holiday destination but it was stopped due to the spike in cases in HK. Nonetheless, Singapore 2nd cruise holiday, Royal Caribbean sets sail with 99% capacity.

Everyone wants a holiday. With limited choices, prices have risen by 100 % even for some staycation destination. If you have not booked any staycate, the next best thing is to use your SingapoRediscover Voucher and enjoy attractions instead. 


Happy Holidays!
