Singapore Discovery Centre / WHAT’S ON

1-Day Itinerary at Singapore Discovery Centre

Being stuck in Singapore for the past two years and unable to venture out overseas? Most of us have travelled around our sunny island seeking recreational activities and unique hang-out spots, but how many of us have explored the far ends of Singapore, our “little red dot”? You might just be surprised at the enthralling fun that awaits you from the far west end of our sunny island - Joo Koon. As they say, there is always a silver lining behind every cloud.
