So much to do, so little time. That may be one of the things running through your mind before you arrive in Singapore for a much-needed holiday.

The thing is that your itinerary planning doesn’t have to be complicated. And contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to spend much to have fun in the Lion City.

Whether you are a seasoned backpacker used to roughing it out on a stranger’s couch, honeymooners holidaying together for the first time, or in a family setting with young kids excited to explore the world, we all have one thing in common.

We all love a good deal. 

One of the best deals when exploring Singapore is to go for the $25 Discover Singapore Pass.

What is the $25 Discover Singapore Pass?

Think of the $25 Discover Singapore Pass as your golden ticket to the best attractions and activities. So, you’d save much more and get a greater value than if you were to book activities individually. 

How the pass works: you can choose up to 15 activities from 32 attractions and redeem as many activities as you can for 24 hours after your first redemption. If you feel like going to Gardens by the Bay for the day and then the Singapore Zoo within that 24-hour timeframe, you can do so and save money while you’re at it.

How do you get the $25 Discover Singapore Pass?

Getting the pass is simple. All you need to do is book a flight to Singapore with Singapore Airlines. Check your flight confirmation email for the Booking Reference Number (PNR). Then head over to Pelago to purchase the pass, key in the PNR when you checkout. And voila, Pelago will send it to you within 24 hours. Simple as pie.

Recommended itineraries for different types of travellers

For families with little ones

Even if it’s not your first time travelling with children, sometimes planning the trip can be a little overwhelming, with all the considerations and concerns that come with being a parent.

So, why not make your life that much easier with the $25 Discover Singapore Pass? 

Our recco? Plan your first day at the Singapore Zoo and have fun with the kids as you explore the park’s famed “open enclosure concept” that’ll bring you closer to nature, with over 300 species of reptiles, mammals, and birds.

For your second day, we suggest enjoying the science of fun at the Science Centre Singapore.

Here is a perfect place for your little ones and even mum and dad, with plenty of educational opportunities. Don’t forget to stop by KidsSTOP and Butterflies Up-close – places the kids will love! 

For TikTokers, Insta-lovers, and photographers

If you are into photography, whether you are a casual shooter or a pro shutterbug, it is likely that when you open up TikTok or the Explore page on Instagram, your feed is full of tips and tricks for all kinds of shots or editing hacks. 

But trust us, the best place to get inspiration is at Gardens by the Bay. For your first day in town, head to this ultra-futuristic, horticultural attraction. Step inside the largest glass greenhouse in the world at the Flower Dome. And see the magical indoor waterfall at the Cloud Forest.

If you are still in need of some photo ops, drop by the first tourist attraction you’ll see in Singapore – the airport, specifically Jewel with its majestic Rain Vortex waterfall.

Make a beeline for the Hedge Maze and Mirror Maze at the Canopy Park, a fun-filled wonderland that’s more playground than an airport. 

For all you culture vultures 

Sometimes, the best way to “get” the cultural pulse of a city is to see things from afar. And there’s no better way to do that than with a trip to the top of Marina Bay Sands.

Start your day by heading up 57 levels high in the sky to the Sands SkyPark Observation Deck to enjoy jaw-dropping vistas of the city skyline. One of the best ways to tick off your cultural bucket list is definitely to chill at one of Singapore’s most iconic buildings.

Of course, the city has no shortage of excellent museums for you, including the ArtScience Museum, conveniently located nearby, and the National Gallery, with the world’s largest public display of modern Southeast Asian art. 

For a day of fun in Sentosa

No vacay to Singapore is complete without a stopover at Sentosa. While there are many ways you can enjoy the island, the best hack to hit up attractions from different categories at a fraction of the cost you would usually pay is to snap up the Discover Singapore Pass.

With the pass, you can check out the S.E.A. Aquarium on your first day and enter a magical underwater realm bursting with vibrant colours from the marine critters that swim in its eye-catching tanks. 

Follow up your Sentosa itinerary by facing your fear of heights and walking across the lofty skybridge at AJ Hackett. And continue the adrenaline, albeit digitally, at HeadRock VR, Singapore’s first-ever theme park, where you can escape reality. Finally, to wind down, go for a relaxing Segway ride for some fun in the sun and a day to remember.
