Good news for everyone who’s dreamt of visiting or enjoying a staycation in Singapore’s Sentosa Island! From March 14 until the end of June, visitors will get free entry to the world-famous Resort World Sentosa. The Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) had already planned to waive the entry fee for the visitors on the occasion of the Mid-Term School Holidays in March. However, to support tourism after the recent Coronavirus outbreak, the SDC has extended the free admission.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has praised Singapore for its all-government approach” in the containment of Covid-19. Several videos by the Singapore Prime Minister have helped the public be aware of the risks and precautions to be taken. On the other hand, the Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry Chee Hong Tat, who had a tour across the island recently, has hoped that the new measures would attract more tourists to Sentosa. Some new channels have also released videos featuring students and parents having fun on the Island during March School Holidays.
What’s Offered at Sentosa:
- There will be free entry for everyone entering the Sentosa Island via Sentosa Boardwalk from March 14 to June end.
- There will be no transportation fee for traveling on a shuttle bus from Our Tampines Hub to Sentosa Island. You can also check the popular bus routes offered by redBus to Resort World Sentosa and book a bus at discounted prices.
- Under the new Stay & Play program, there will be several deals and discounts on hotels and travel packages in March.
- Famous hotels like Shangri-La’s Rasa Resort and Spa and Capella are also offering staycation packages for Singaporeans who want to stay at an exciting yet safer place during March Holidays amid Covid-19 outbreak.
In addition to Resort World Sentosa and restaurants at 3 & 5-star Sentosa hotels, there are several good restaurants on Sentosa Beach that are now taking care of maintaining good hygiene. The precautionary measures like sanitization of furniture and other touch-points are being performed.
If you’re a local and planning for a staycation with family during March Holidays, being in the Island or Resort World Sentosa at free admission and discounted packages would be a good idea.
