5 Fun things to do in SG during the National Day long weekend

2020 is definitely an unprecedented year for everyone, us included, and National Day 2020 is going to be a unique one as we all know. Even though it’s a long weekend stuck in this little red dot, there are still many things we can do with our friends or family.

1. Stay out for a Staycation

Stay out for a Staycation


Staycation is the new vacation, especially if you are looking to get the out-of-home short weekend getaway experience. With National Day coinciding with a long weekend, there’s just so much you can plan, and Capella is joining in the celebrations too. They are having a ‘Third Night On Us’ promo package, by providing a one extra complimentary night stay.


But, if you would like to soak yourself with the celebratory vibes and catching the National Day fireworks display on 9 August, The Fullerton Bay Hotel is providing its guests with a guaranteed view room. What we really like is that they have the Best Rate Guarantee clause, which means to say if you find a lower rate within 24 hours after booking with them, they will match the rate and extend a further 10% discount on it. WOW.

2. NDP 2020

Singapore is still going ahead with the celebrations to keep the spirit there even in the midst of a pandemic, with the theme Together A Stronger Singapore. Unlike previous parades, we will not be seeing mass performances due to safety measures, but instead we can all celebrate at the comfort of our own homes, which will begin in the morning. Here’s a glance of what’s happening on 9 August.

3. The Secret Room Art Installation

The exhibition is brought to life by multi-media artist Mojoko, which shines a torchlight into the mysterious and intrigues of the past but with a modern twist to it.

5. Catch a movie

Catch a movie

We often take the simplest pleasures in life for granted until when they are taken away from us that we realised the significance of it. Circuit Breaker period was definitely a tough one for all of us, all entertainments and activities literally came to a halt, and our cinemas aren’t spared too. We are just glad they have reopened in July, and Train to Busan 2 is out in cinemas, just nice we can catch it during the long weekend!
