Family activities and offers to enjoy these June holidays
The June school holidays are fast approaching. This means that many families are preparing to leave together for this long-awaited trip abroad.
However, even if you and your offspring decide to stay in Lion City, you won’t necessarily miss out on all the fun.
With plenty to do right here in Singapore, you and your family can enjoy all kinds of activities while leaving with Instagram-worthy photos and great memories to last a lifetime.
Keep scrolling to see what different local destinations have in store for you and the kids, so you can start planning a wonderful, budget-friendly “getaway” at the same time.
1. Visit mega playgrounds with exclusive Klook packages
Children are balls of energy. Now that they’ve been out of school for a month, they need places to go and things to do to keep them busy.
To support Made For Families, Klook has organized a series of fun offers and activities to encourage families to share joyful adventures and create memories together.
You can choose from a wide range of multi-tour passes, including the Klook Ultimate Playgrounds Pass, which includes discounted access to:
