Singapore – December is the best time of the year to reward yourself and your loved ones. While a trip to Bangkok, Maldives, or Korea sounds alluring, you may still be in two minds about jetting off for a holiday.
But, this does not mean you have to miss out on festive fun! Save the hassle of planning a regulation-compliant trip, skip the multiple Covid tests required, and enjoy the holiday season in your own backyard instead. Because we are all different and have our own preferences when it comes to choosing a hotel, check out Far East Hospitality’s website to see the spectrum of brands with different offerings and you will find one that suits you and your loved ones.
And, to start off the holiday season, here are the newly launched experiential staycation packages this festive season!

In the evening, hop on a Trishaw ride along Chinatown, followed by a bumboat cruise along the iconic Singapore River. Experience Singapore’s transformation from a fishing village to a global metropolis it is today against the backdrop of a beautiful city sunset.
The following day, cook up a heritage feast at The Food Playground and learn the stories behind age-old family recipes such as Laksa, Curry Chicken, and Char Kway Teow.

After a year of hustling, a wellness retreat is a must. Pamper yourself with the Christmas Retreat* package (priced from $3,988 nett for a 3D2N stay) at the Oasia Resort Sentosa.
