Singapore

One of the most popular travel destinations, Singapore is well known for its skyscrapers and modern lifestyle. A country with one of the least stringent entry requirements, Singapore is home to a diverse population with a mix of Chinese, Malay and Indian influences along with a tropical climate. Major attractions include Marina Bay Sands Singapore, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore Botanic Gardens, and world-famous Universal Studios.
Things to do while in Singapore:
1. Explore Orchard Road – The Fashion Street Of Singapore: A walk along Orchard is a chance to know how glitzy and glamorous Singapore is. A lot of creativity and love were put into decorations and lighting to make the place sparkling. There is a bevy of shopping malls and retail shops on Orchard Road and an entire day is not enough to explore them all!
2. Stroll along Marina Bay Waterfront Promenade: Singapore’s Marina Bay is a real beauty of nature, adorned with the most glitzy skyscrapers and unique architectural buildings. The promenade is there to give locals and tourists an up-close view of the bay. It also serves as a viewing area for various public events.
3. Explore Downtown Singapore On A Bumboat: A bumboat ride down the Singapore River is the cheapest and fastest way to see the stunning sights of downtown Singapore. You can relax at the boat deck and enjoy the breeze as the boat chugs along the river. Go in the late afternoon to catch the sunset and get the best of day and night views of the waterfront.
4. Visit Gardens By The Bay: Gardens by the Bay is a must-visit spot in Singapore. With the iconic Supertrees and distinctive pair of Cooled Conservatories, it is an instantly recognisable landmark in Singapore.
5. Have A City View From Sands Skypark: The Sands SkyPark Observation Deck is a popular tourist attraction that overlooks Singapore from the top of the iconic Marina Bay Sands. The observation deck offers a spectacular 360-degree view of Singapore with guided tours conducted daily on a first-come, first-served basis.
6. Souk Up Chinese Culture In Chinatown: Singapore’s Chinatown is a delightful mix of old and new in the city’s central area. It is a gold mine of Chinese heritage and culture with its old temples, historic shop, houses, and traditional wet markets. Family-run stores and teahouses can also be found here, giving visitors a glimpse of the old Chinatown.
7. Go Clubbing At Clarke Quay: Nightlife in Clarke Quay and Riverside presents some of Singapore’s top bars, restaurants, and nightclubs in a vibrant after-dark playground. As soon as the working day is over, Clarke Quay is the buzz word on everybody’s lips. Lying in close proximity to the Central Business District, this cute collection of bars and restaurants is Singapore’s go-to area for chilled out alfresco wining and dining.
8. Enjoy Orchid At National Orchid Garden: The National Orchid Garden is a green oasis where you can admire the beautiful blooms of Singapore’s national flower. Most businesses in Singapore open late so why not spend your early morning at the garden? Breathe fresh air and flower scents into your lungs before heading out to enjoy the rest of Singapore.
9. Visit The Sentosa Island: Visiting the Southernmost part of Southeast Asia is a fun way to explore one of the beaches of Sentosa Island. You access this geographic point by walking across a floating rope bridge. Many Sentosa Island guests remember this as one of their favorite experiences when visiting the island.
10. Visit Universal Studios Singapore: Universal Studios Singapore is a theme park located within the Resorts World Sentosa at Sentosa, Singapore.
11. Explore The National Gallery Singapore: The National Gallery Singapore, often just known locally as the National Gallery, is a public institution and national museum dedicated to art and culture located in the Civic District of Singapore.

Coronavirus (COVID-19): Enjoying Holidays, Celebrations, and Gatherings Safely

Holidays and other gatherings have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic started. It’s been stressful for everyone, adults and children alike. So it’s important to keep celebrating and getting together in creative ways. Special celebration times can help ease “pandemic fatigue” by reconnecting safely with family and friends.

Here are some ways to enjoy holidays and gatherings while keeping the people you care about safe and happy.

A Safe Vacation During the COVID-19 Pandemic | UNICEF Romania

 

Keep the Celebrations Small or Virtual

The safest option, for now, is to celebrate holidays and other special events only with members of your own household. To connect with friends and loved ones you can’t see in person, host virtual events. You can chat while eating, play games, “see” each other’s holiday decorations, or share recipes. Weddings, funerals, graduations, and other major milestones can be shared virtually, letting lots of people join from near and far.

 

Tips for Hosting and Attending Gatherings Safely

Some families may choose to gather with people they don’t live with. This is more of a risk than gathering virtually or with people from your own household. If you decide to host or attend a gathering, follow the CDC’s advice:

  • Get together outdoors, if possible.
  • If you must be indoors, open windows to increase ventilation.
  • Everyone 2 years and older should wear a mask except when eating and drinking.
  • Limit the number of guests so that people from different households can stay at least 6 feet apart. Set up chairs or tables in advance so people know where to safely be.
  • Keep the visit brief. You might consider getting together just for dessert or not eating or drinking at all.
  • Have people bring their own food and drinks to limit touching the same surfaces. If you do share food, have one person serve the food (while wearing a mask) so only one person touches the serving spoon. Consider putting the food on plates in advance. Then have people take a plate one at a time while keeping physically distant.

Health experts say it’s safe for fully vaccinated people to be indoors with other fully vaccinated people, even without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart. It’s also safe for fully vaccinated people to be unmasked and close to unvaccinated members of another household if the unvaccinated people aren’t at high risk of getting very sick from COVID-19. So, as more and more people are fully vaccinated, gatherings will get safer for everyone.

 

Get Creative!

Holidays and other celebrations may feel different during the pandemic. But you can still make them fun and memorable for your kids:

  • Make an event of watching sports, parades, and movies from the comfort of your own home. Set up an indoor cozy space with pillows and blankets and snacks. If it’s warm enough, enjoy the entertainment from your yard.
  • Make gifts. Get crafty and have kids write letters to each other and loved ones, create coupon books, and more. They can make their own wrapping paper. Older children and teens can have fun with tie-dye, inviting friends to virtually create with them.
  • Travel to an imaginary vacation spot in your home. Come up with theme rooms, special foods, and fun activities that you would traditionally do at your favorite vacation spot.
  • Work together on holiday greetings or invitations. Whether you buy cards or make your own, kids will enjoy being involved and getting them ready to mail.
  • Make video holiday greetings and invitations, and involve kids in the creative process, from writing a script, to filming, to email.
  • Play games. Teach your kids the board games you played when you were a kid or have a virtual game night with friends or your family.
  • Decorate. It can brighten spirits, giving your whole family a change of space.
  • Spread kindness to your community. Kids can make signs with messages for neighbors that you can hang in the windows or post in your yard.
  • Make a game of going through your house to find items to donate in honor of whatever your family is celebrating. Look for clothes, food, and household goods that you don’t use that are in good condition.
  • Read holiday books together with the whole family.

Safety Steps to Take

To help prevent the spread of germs:

  • Wash hands well and often. Wash for at least 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid people who look sick.
  • Clean surfaces that get touched a lot (like doorknobs, counters, phones, etc.).
  • Try not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth.
  • Get a flu vaccine each year (everyone who is 6 months of age and older).
  • Get a COVID-19 vaccine as soon as you’re eligible.

There is one main reason to travel here – and that is to see gorillas. The Volcanoes National Park is the Rwandan portion of the Virunga Volcanoes Mountains (which straddles Uganda and the DRC as well) and is home to around half of the world’s mountain gorillas and often considered as Africa’s best gorilla trekking experience.

2. Sabi Sand Private Game Reserve – South Africa

One of the African places to visit is the Sabi Sand Game Reserve and its leopards

Set along the Kruger National Park’s western boundary, this private reserve offers the best Big 5 game viewing in Southern Africa as well as some of Africa’s most luxurious and groundbreaking lodges. And the best part, the Sabi Sand is easy to access and far away from tourist crowds of Kruger National Park!

3. Kafue – Zambia

A hidden gem of a safari destination and flying well below the radar of most safari travellers, Kafue is the largest of Zambia’s conservation areas. With only a handful of lodges, this enormous reserve is often explored with barely another vehicle in sight. Added to this the huge number of unusual plains game, such as lechwe and puku, and the usual predators they attract, Kafue is an off-the-beaten-track destination to add to your bucket list.

4. Skeleton Coast – Namibia

African places to visit in 2021: Skeleton Coast in Namibia

Skeleton Coast, where the desert meets the ocean

Named after the shipwrecks which litter the beaches of northern Namibia, the Skeleton Coast is a remote and desolate part of Africa. With great sweeping vistas of vast desert and violent ocean, you would be surprised to find the volume of fauna and flora it supports. Lions on the beach, brown hyenas, seals and oryx make this a perfect stop in a Namibian itinerary – but be warned, it sells out fast.

5. Pemba Island – Zanzibar

Welcome to your paradise in the Indian Ocean

Situated in the Indian Ocean, a short distance off the Tanzania coast – Zanzibar has a colourful history with connections to Africa, Middle East and Asia. As you would expect the culture is a big drawcard for visiting however the island life of palm-fringed beaches, cerulean waters and local dhow sailing boats make this an island paradise like no other.

6. Masai Mara – Kenya

Masai Mara in Kenya is among the African places to visit in 2021

Live your African dream in the Masai Mara

Easily one of Africa’s most famous safari destinations – there is little which needs to be said about it. A well known cog of the great migration machine, the Masai Mara is actually an incredible destination to visit year-round. One particular highlight would be to view Africa’s magic from the air in a hot-air balloon ride over the savannah.

7. Franschhoek – South Africa

As the only town featured in our list, Franschhoek clearly has to be something special – and it really is. This quaint little town is very firmly part of South Africa’s famous wine route. Synonymous with its effortless French flair, it is not surprising that Franschhoek boasts a significant number of award winning restaurants and wine farms to please even the pickiest gourmand.

8. Selous – Tanzania

Dream safari, anyone?

Probably a name you have never encountered before, but trust me you need to take note. Selous National Park is actually Africa’s largest game reserve and, although difficult to imagine, it is four times the size of the Serengeti! A traditional Big 5 safari destination, with incredible numbers of buffalo and elephant as well, what really makes this place stand out is its remoteness and raw, untouched wilderness.

9. Hwange National Park – Zimbabwe

I’m certain you have all seen the iconic views of Mount Kilimanjaro – the world’s tallest free standing mountain. Well they are more than likely to have been taken in Amboseli. The mountain is actually situated across the border in Tanzania, but the game rich area of Amboseli, with large herds of elephants, is a great reason to enjoy this spectacular reserve.
