Experience the Wonders of Pandora at the Gardens By The Bay Singapore
The long wait is over! Avatar: The Experience will finally open on 28 October 2022, at Cloud Forest in Gardens by the Bay Singapore. Cityneon Holdings, Disney Location-Based Experiences, and James Cameron and Jon Landau’s Lightstorm Entertainment have worked closely to come up with an amazing walkthrough event highlighting the beauty and unique storytelling of Avatar – the global blockbuster movie and the highest-grossing film of all time.
If you’re planning a trip to Singapore, you may consider getting tickets to this limited-time Avatar experience. So far, plans include replicating Pandora’s fantastic realms of misty waterfalls, ethereal greens, and mysterious walkways to immerse visitors in this one-of-a-kind collaborative plan. Otherworldly creatures and surprising sights may make their way onto your path, so don’t miss the chance to see how this famous Southeast Asian garden plans to stage this amazing bioluminescent world!
Apart from commemorating the impending premiere of the second Avatar film, this unique experience also marks the 10-year anniversary celebration of Singapore’s Gardens By The Bay. Whether or not you’re planning to visit this incredible backdrop, we strongly suggest visiting this popular tourist attraction. The Cloud Forest is always a big draw, but the Gardens have other sights worth a day of strolling and exploring, such as the Supertree Observatory, the Flower Dome, and the Garden Pod!
Visiting the Gardens By The Bay is an incredible opportunity to learn more about tropical flora and fauna. However, visiting during the run of the Avatar-themed space is an immersive wonder that’ll offer a special glimpse into the movie’s mystical charms. Get a spot for this walk-through experience from 28 October 2022 to 31 March 2023. Klook is the official ticketing partner and you can get 10% off Early Bird tickets to Avatar: The Experience if you book now until 28 October 2022. Enter AVEARLY10 at checkout.

If you’re looking for an exciting, family-friendly activity while vacationing in the Lion City, the Minion’s Perspective Experience is one of the latest must-tries. After successful openings in Seoul, Shenzhen, and Taipei, this experience opened in September in Singapore to delight audiences anew.
You don’t need to be a fan of the Despicable Me and Minions animated franchise to enjoy this touring exhibition. It has eight thematic zones in an area spanning over 1,400 sq.m., with multiple thematic environments and life-sized characters from the Despicable Me and Minions movies. Zone 1, for example, has the Preshow Theater featuring clips from the popular film franchise, while Zone 2 is a showcase for the movies’ sketches, quotable quotes, and character designs.
Zone 3 and 4 will be quick favorites for those who enjoy interactive areas. Try the immersive goggles or the fart gun test – these are bound to make your whole family or travel group explode with laughter! These zones were inspired by Gru’s lab in the movies, so it can really feel like a place where you can all experiment.
Zone 5 is known as the “It’s So Fluffy” zone or The Girl’s Room, with an interactive Fluffy wall, adorably colorful bedroom, and a digital coloring wall. Zone 6 gives you a closer look at the world of the franchises’ cunning, clever villains, where you can try the El Macho Memory Game or get down to the Bratt Dance Party.
Zone 7 is where fans of the lovable yellow Minions can have fun with exciting games like Banana Mania and Which Minion Are You, while Zone 8 shows Minions through different eras like the Stone Age and King Bob’s reign.
If you’re curious about the exhibition, it’s located at Resorts World Sentosa Waterfront near Singapore’s other tourist hotspots. Get your ticket now!

Unwind And Destress At The Hot Spa Singapore
Nothing says “rest and relaxation” quite like a day of pampering treatments at a spa. If you’ve spent hours exploring the sights of Singapore, your body might need the deep soothing that only a day at the spa can give. This is what makes an indulgent day so enticing at The Hot Spa, a relaxation center that’s been open in Singapore since 1996. Recently they’ve offered packages for enjoying their spa facilities: the Relax Indulgence Spa For One or For Two, and a 12-hour spa pass.
The 12-hour spa pass gives you access to Hot Spa’s incredible facilities such as the cinema hall and lounge area. You can take dips in the hot and cool pools, sweat the pain away in the sauna or steam room, then grab a refreshing drink at the bar. This package also comes with their in-house chef’s premium, freshly-cooked meals, desserts, and drinks like coffee, fruit juices, and Milo.
If you want all these privileges plus more specialized treatment to knead the stress out of your body, the Relax Indulgence Spa is a solid choice. This package lets you enjoy a 90-minute full body massage, where you choose one massage style out of these options: aromatherapy, deep tissue, or the Hot Spa signature therapist’s specialty.
This package also comes with your choice of special treatment – either detoxification, cupping, or moxibustion, which burns dried plants over body points to facilitate healing. These extra treatments are well worth the splurge, as they’re often said to help high-tension points and reduce pain.
Detach from the fast-paced, busy days that have worn out your body by trying these Hot Spa packages. Whether you choose to relax solo or invite your family and friends to chill with you, it’s a blissful reprieve to have while in the Lion City. Purchase your ticket now
Experience Singapore Flyer Sky Dining and Dine with a View
Dining in Singapore can be a feast for the senses thanks to its melting pot of different cultures and tantalizing cuisines. But what if you could literally elevate your Lion City meal? This is something you can actually do if you try Singapore Flyer Sky Dining, an incredible experience that lets visitors savor multiple courses aboard Asia’s Largest Observation Wheel. Get an 8% discount when you book with Klook!
Trying Singapore Flyer Sky Dining is a snap – you can book a package on their official website or through popular tourism activity sites like Klook. Dress a little more snazzily if you plan to try this, as they recommend smart casual attire and don’t allow flip-flops or slippers.
This experience lets you choose a delectable four-course meal: Western, Oriental, or Vegetarian. The Western menu has tantalizing courses like angus steak and smoked duck breast, while the Oriental menu’s hearty soup and braised chicken are full of flavor. The vegetarian options are just as delicious, with dishes such as deep-fried vegetable balls and braised mushrooms. Singapore Flyer regularly changes up these menus, so check if the choices are to your liking before booking!
You’ll be feasting on your chosen dinner menu for two rotations on a Singapore Flyer capsule, and getting a pre-booked package gives you priority boarding so you can skip the long queues for this popular tourist attraction. It’s typically set for two rotations (roughly 60 minutes), but for those who want to celebrate a special occasion, you can book a private sky dining experience so you can have a more intimate meal.
Hop aboard a Singapore Flyer capsule and indulge in a specially-prepared dinner with an incredible view of Marina Bay! It’s a different take on dining under the stars that can feel quite romantic, and it’ll give you an unmatched look at Singapore’s glittering cityscape.
See Singapore’s Major Landmarks On The FunVee Night Tour
Tourists always prep for a long day of walking around Singapore to check out its numerous sights – but why tire your feet out by strolling when you can take a nighttime ride? Get your voucher for a FunVee Night Tour experience on Klook and prepare for an exciting open-bus ride through the Lion City’s biggest attractions.
For a reasonable price point, you can get a guided ride on an open-air double-decker bus through Singapore’s most popular tourist spots such as the National Gallery, the Arts House, Parliament House, and Padang. Feel the wind through your hair as you and your tour group breeze past the Merlion and enjoy the view of the Marina Bay skyline. As you go through these landmarks, a tour guide will give you unique insights into the country’s culture and history.
Apart from riding past these amazing attractions, this activity includes sampling the delicious local fare at Boat Quay. There’s also a stopover at CHIJMES (Convent of the Holy Infant Jesus Middle Education School), a historic building complex that has beautiful courtyards and amazing dining and entertainment options. Don’t forget to grab refreshments and snap photos at this cool lifestyle destination!
Your FunVee bus ride is capped off with an incredible light and laser show at Marina Bay Sands. While there’s a daytime option for this activity, we highly recommend springing for the Night Tour instead because it lets you see all of Singapore illuminated by glittering lights!
Get vouchers for this special activity ahead of time and make sure you come early as seats are given on a first-come, first-served basis. Remember to check the weather on the day of your ride, as these rides push through even on rainy days that need a poncho. It’s especially popular during holidays like Christmas, so don’t be surprised if vouchers for this sell out fast! Get your ticket in advance now.
Make Gardens By The Bay the Location of Your Next Staycation
When seasoned tourists think of iconic Singapore attractions, the Gardens By The Bay is often at the top of the list. In the middle of the Lion City’s concrete jungle, this massive nature sanctuary is a flowery respite for weary city dwellers.
Spanning around 250 acres in the heart of downtown Singapore, the Gardens By The Bay were created to enhance the city’s existing greenery and improve Singaporean quality of life. It’s comprised of three gardens: the Bay South Garden, the Bay East Garden, and the Bay Central Garden.
One of the newest things to do here is to book a staycation at the Garden Pod, a boutique hotel consisting of peaceful duplex units surrounded by lush foliage. The units are positioned in a pinwheel pattern so they all offer a unique and fantastic view of Gardens By The Bay and Marina Bay.
The Supertree Observatory is another must-see because of its tall tree canopies and incredible view of Marina Bay. Seven of its incredible Supertrees are designed to gather solar energy as part of their commitment to sustainable living. Snap pics of these before grabbing refreshments at The Social Kitchen! Hot tip: go at night to catch one of the evening light-and-sound Garden Rhapsody shows, where it feels like the trees are coming to life!
The OCBC Skyway is a great place to capture panoramic shots of 12 amazing vertical gardens. Discover incredible ecosystems at the Kingfisher Wetlands or check out the myriad fauna in World of Plants. The Gardens By The Bay has so many natural attractions where people can stroll, learn more about the environment, and enjoy a serene picnic despite the bustle of everyday life. We strongly suggest that you set aside a full day during your Singapore trip to enjoy its verdant wonders!

Traipse in the Winter Wonderland Of Snow City Singapore
Southeast Asia isn’t exactly the first region that comes to mind if you want to play in the snow, but the Lion City has an exciting attraction that brings winter to tourists even in the sweltering heat! Snow City Singapore is quickly becoming a popular vacation stop where visitors can cool down during their tropical trip.
Snow City is Singapore’s first indoor snow center, and they offer Snow Play Sessions where you can slide down snowy slopes, chill in igloos, or have a snowball fight. Make snow angels, marvel at the meticulously crafted ice sculptures, or go for an ice bumper car ride with your family and friends!
Remember to dress warmly and follow the venue’s attire guidelines, as the temperatures there will really make it feel like you’re in the middle of winter. Find your ticket for this attraction at Klook!
