SingapoRediscovers: Ideas on where to spend your $100 tourism vouchers

SINGAPORE – From December, Singaporeans aged 18 and above will get $100 in digital vouchers to spend on staycations, tickets to leisure attractions, and local tours.

Adult Singaporeans will also be able to purchase up to six subsidised tickets for attractions and tours – each at $10 off – for those under 18 from December to the end of next June.

The Singapore Tourism Board said specific details on voucher redemptions will be announced in November, but that does not mean the planning cannot start now.
