We will be celebrating our nation’s 56th birthday in August! It is a long weekend, hurray! Have you made plans for National Day weekend yet? There is no better time than now to explore what our own island has to offer. We have put together a list of ideas for some exploration and family time!
Day Out with Nature
National Parks made plans for us! Choose from the list of suggested trails and pick your preferred trail by considering walking distance/ time, highlights and difficulty of each trail.
Take this chance to know or share more about our nation’s history:
Note: Some facilities may be closed during this period. Remember to keep to a group size of no more than 5, and keep your masks on at all time, unless you are engaged in strenuous exercises.
