It's that time of the year again, with all the red white flags hung on the sides of HDB flats, streets and community centres. National Day 2018 is fast approaching and if you are one of those that didn't get your NDP tickets - here are some ways you can have fun right at home and celebrate National Day at the same time!
Looking to try something different with your family this National Day? Embark on a Heritage Fun Hunt at SAFRA Toa Payoh around the neighbourhood with your family. Once you're done with the hunt, you can take part in an array of ARTS@SAFRA activities and performances.
If you want to shop while keeping your kids entertained, head down to The Polliwogs at Suntec City Mall and enjoy 15% off admission fees as a SAFRA member. You can also enjoy 50% off child or adult admission tickets to the Singapore Zoo.
For those who live near SAFRA Punggol, you can get your adrenaline pumping with FIGHT DO®, a fitness regime combining boxing and martial arts for the parents. If you want to get heart pumping action together as a family, everyone can take part together on a mini trampoline at Boogie Bounce Kidz.
Feeling hungry after all the exhilarating workouts? You can enjoy SAFRA member promotions such as 1-for-1 beverage at My Melody Cafe or 10% off the à la carte menu at Ding Xian Hot Pot. With durian season upon us, why not drop by SAFRA Yishun for a Kampung themed Durian Party under the stars?
Take this National Day public holiday to treat yourself to some retail therapy. If you are a SAFRA member, you can enjoy $50 off when you spend $100 at Dockers. If you are looking to get yourself decked out in professional attire, drop by T.M. Lewin to enjoy 20% off all regular-priced items.
What makes National Day special is watching the parade with your fellow Singaporeans, side by side. Since you're already at SAFRA enjoying the various activities and events, stay back a little more and enjoy Live NDP Screenings at SAFRA Jurong, SAFRA Punggol and SAFRA Yishun. However, if you're hoping to avoid the crowd while out there shopping and waiting to catch the fireworks, here are some great spots you can check out.
WHERE: Faber Park
ADDRESS: 109 Mount Faber Road
NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Harbourfront MRT
Change things up and climb to the top of Mount Faber to watch the fireworks from afar. Faber Peak is 105m tall and offers a panoramic bird's eye view of the city's skyline and a one-of-a-kind view of the NDP fireworks.
WHERE: Tanjong Rhu Promenade
ADDRESS: Tanjong Rhu
NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Stadium MRT
Nestled away from most of the bustle of the city especially during National Day, Tanjong Rhu Promenade is a perfect quiet spot to enjoy a picnic in the cool evening breeze. Some might even say it's the perfect spot for romantics.
WHERE: Kallang Riverside Park
ADDRESS: 5 Stadium Road
NEAREST TRAIN STATION: Stadium MRT
Kallang Riverside Park is best known for its sports facilities but it's also one of those rare spots with an amazing view of Marina Bay Sands and the Singapore Flyer. The park works as a great vantage point to catch the NDP fireworks as well as a sweet little spot with your significant other!
