Living in Singapore, you must feel the need to get away for a while. We all work long, hard hours and there’s just no way to get out of this heat and humidity! You really want to stay in this fantastic country you call home, but you’re not really sure if there’s anything new to do in the area. Lucky for you, Singapore is one of the best places in the world to have a Singapore staycation. Essentially, a staycation is where you stay in your own part of the country and look at it through the eyes of a tourist. This is a great way to save money. You don’t have to travel to other countries and worry about airfare, deadlines, and hotel arrangements.
You may be wondering what you would do on a staycation that you couldn’t do otherwise. It’s true that, technically, you could visit many places over a weekend, but who has the time? With a staycation, you can really devote an entire day to thoroughly exploring each attraction. Singapore has a huge variety of things to offer like aquariums, amusement parks, Universal Studios, and a huge resort full of activities on Sentosa. I doubt you’ve had the chance to explore all of these in your area. Even if you have, I doubt you’ve been able to see every part. There are always things to do if you search around and ask your friends. If just going to a new place isn’t enough to make things feel like a vacation for you, instead of spending money on a hotel, think about hiring a maid. That will allow you to spend less money and still avoid the stresses of cleaning up after your family.
And really, saving money is what a staycation is all about. If you intend to fly to another country, you’ll be paying for tickets, baggage fees, hotel charges, money towards rental car or taxi services, and then after you’ve spent all that money, you’ve already lost two or three days to travel. You’re exhausted and frustrated before you’ve even started your vacation. Rather than spending all that money and time, you can stay right around where you live and spend that time enjoying a staycation. Plus, you don’t have to spend money eating out every night if saving money is what you’re looking for. And if you’re the type to not be able to get comfortable anywhere except your own bed, a staycation will help you stay rested every night for each new attraction you’ll be visiting in the morning. And for the money you do spend, it’ll be staying in your local economy. Rather than spending money in a foreign country, you’ll be advancing the local economy and help keep money in the pockets of your fellow Singaporeans. Prices in Singapore are also much cheaper than other countries with similar attractions and vacation destinations, so you’ll be able to do more with your money than you could elsewhere.
