3 Places you Need to Visit Now that Singapore has Opened Up

Be Travel-Ready: 5 Tips for Safer Trips During the Covid Recovery

The country rejoiced when the news was announced that from 1 April 2022, all travellers vaccinated against Covid-19 and children aged 12 and below would be able to enter Singapore with just a pre-departure Covid-19 test.

Since its most significant move to open its borders, more Singaporeans have also indicated strong interest to finally head overseas for their long awaited vacations. Unsure where to visit? We’ve got a list of 3 popular travel destinations for you to explore! 

Ever since we began quarantining and living through lock down, Netflix, Viu and Disney+ have been our sole companions. With more and more people consuming K dramas and Korean culture, it’s no secret that there has been a significant uptick in interest to travel to the homeland of Song Hye-Kyo and Hyun Bin.

Take a trip to Seoul to immerse yourself in its exciting and colourful sights, sounds and seriously awesome street food. First, make your way to Dongdaemun Design Plaza to enjoy the art exhibitions on display. Then, take a gander to Noryangjin Fish Market to immerse yourself into the local fish market culture and see the catch of the day. Getting hungry? Pop by Gwangjang market, Seoul’s century-old market boasting of stalls selling mayak kimbap, bindaetteok,  makgeolli and more.

Yes, Australia has been a VTL listed country for awhile, but it doesn’t hurt that it is still one of the most popular vacation spots for Singaporeans. Perhaps it is the ease of not having to speak a second language, or the fact that even in Sydney or Melbourne you are bound to meet fellow Singaporeans in and around town wherever you may go, or the closeness to a temperate climate we can experience without travelling too far. 

Regardless, here are some of the most popular destinations in the Land Down Under that you can explore!

If you love cafe culture, you will love Melbourne. The CBD area is chockful of cafes and speak easys that you will be spoilt for choice! Be sure to wake up early to queue for the famous croissants at Lune croissants, or make your way to Flinders street to shop till you drop. Looking for a change in scenery? Book yourself a one-night stay at a farm! Get a chance to be woken up by the cockle-doodaldoo of the chickens, milk some cows and even rear some sheep. Live out your wildest farm life dreams!

It’s been two years since most of us had a chance to experience snow. What better chance to experience it than in one of the most beautiful cities in Europe - Lucerne. The country is cradled by enchanting the alpine scenery and picturesque mountaintops and serene waters at every turn. 

Take a cable car ride up to the peak of Mt Pilatus, then wander along the cobblestone streets in the Old Town of Lucerne and admire the architecture of the old burgher’s houses. For more beautiful views of the surrounding mountains and scenery, take the cog railway from the shores of Lake Lucerne up Mt Rigi. You could also consider doing a scenic circle route by taking a boat from Lucerne to Vitznau, then board the cogwheel train to Rigi Kulm. Then take another cogwheel train down to Arth-Goldau and catch a train back to Lucerne.

Now that you know which place to visit, make sure you prepare well before your next trip! Make sure you get proper travel insurance Singapore provider before you leave and get sufficient coverage!
