Don’t let the weather dampen your mood. Singapore is known to be a sunny island. However, the weather is unpredictable and can throw up an occasional shower or thunderstorm. Cherish your bonding time with the loved ones and don’t put it in jeopardy due to the rain.
Here are the top 7 indoor things to do in Singapore which you can add to your backup plan and activate when the skies turn dark.
No matter rain or shine, nothing can dampen your mood!
#1 Get upclose & personal with Marine Life at S.E.A. Aquarium
S.E.A. Aquarium remains the top favorite for familes to spend a half a day leisurely spotting manta rays, sharks and other marine creatures. Head to the Discovery Pool, come up close to animals such as the epaulette shark as well as the knobbly sea star, a native sea star recognised by the chocolate chip-like knobs on top of its body. The area is equipped with wash basins for you to sanitise your hands before and after the experience.
Do not miss out the crown jewel of the attraction: Open Ocean Habitat. It is home to more than 120 species of sea animals and the size is equivalent to 7 Olympic-size pools! Make this your best photo spot!
