All children under the age of 12 and all travelers who are vaccinated can freely enter the country without the need to take any kind of tests. All can now enjoy quarantine-free travel in Singapore.
Activity 1: Sunbathe at Lazarus Island
Singapore may not be big when it comes to beaches but there are actually hidden gems in the country. Case in point, Lazarus Island. Also referred to as ‘the forgotten island’, this island is only a 20-minute ferry ride away from the city. The ride could be lesser or longer if you’d be on a yacht charter holiday. You could either speed your way to it or sail relaxingly as you enjoy Singapore’s delicious tropical weather. If you want an exclusive and intimate party with selected guests, you could charter a super yacht and have the ultimate getaway on Lazarus Island.
Once you’ve arrived at the relatively unheard-of island, you’d get to enjoy its unspoiled sand and tranquil turquoise waters. You’d also be pleasantly surprised by the presence of cats! All you have to do is sit and you’d easily be surrounded by sweet cats. Lazarus Island is also considered one of Singapore’s cat islands! The other one is St. John’s Island.
Activity 2: Explore Marina Club
Visiting Singapore on a sailing holiday will be a total waste if you won’t get to explore ONE°15 Marina Club. You’d simply get to enjoy more out of your yacht charter if you’d check out everything that Marina Club has to offer. You can choose from the following exciting activities:
- Signature spa treatments – nothing like an hour-long massage session after a long day of sailing
- Fine dining – you can choose from different kinds of dishes from all over the world
- Recreational programs – it’s impossible to run out of exciting options
Marina Club is a solid boater’s paradise. So much so that it has received numerous awards for being an excellent location for boaters that offer world-class amenities and warm hospitality. It’s a supreme playground for all sailing enthusiasts.
Activity 3: Leisurely Walk Around Gardens by the Bay
You would also greatly enjoy your Singapore yacht charter holiday if you’d get to experience the beauty of the Gardens by the Bay. Here, charterers can enjoy 250 acres of lush flora and fauna like never before. You’d be amazed at large open spaces that showcase exquisitely designed domes and conservatories that all visitors are free to explore. You might want to visit late in the afternoon as you’d want to catch its breathtaking light show!
Activity 4: Enjoy the Light Show on the Singapore Yacht charter!
Singapore is known for its mesmerizing city lights. This is something that the country took to the next level with its daily light show that all charterers thoroughly enjoy. The most popular light show in the country — Wonder Full — is shown at Marina Bay Sands every night from 8:00 to 8:30 pm. It rightly deserves its name as charterers always find themselves feeling thrilled and energized after watching such. As it is at the Marina Bay Sands, you can conveniently enjoy the show from your yacht’s very deck.
You should also check out Crane Dance. It’s a light show that is shown from Thursdays to Mondays at Sentosa Resort. It beautifully narrates the story of two birds that fell deeply in love with each other through dramatic light reflections over steel structures.
Activity 5: Have fun at the ArtScience Museum
Placed at the building that is referred to as Singapore’s welcoming hand, Singapore’s ArtScience Museum should also be part of your sailing holiday itinerary. It offers permanent and touring exhibitions in its twenty-one perfectly curated galleries that would have you feel culturally enriched and ever inspired. The museum is within walking distance from shops at Marina Bay Sands so a visit to the area during a laid-back afternoon while on a Singapore Yacht cruise would be ideal.
Since opening in 2011, the museum has held exhibitions of works from Andy Warhol, Leonardo da Vinci, Salvador Dali, M.C. Escher, and Vincent Van Gogh. ArtScience Museum exhibits are highly unique as they join both artistic and scientific concepts through the use of advanced technology.
