Round up your friends, you're  Certain outdoor recreational tours in Singapore will now be able to accommodate group sizes of up to twenty people. According to an update by the Singapore Tourism Board (STB), walking, cycling and kayaking tours are able to double the limit from ten to twenty people from November 1. Additionally, all licensed travel agents and tour operators can also now resume on-site operations – subject to the approval of tour itineraries and schedules. 

However, it's not time to throw caution to the wind. Tours will be subject to prevailing social gathering sizes of five. This means that twenty people in a tour must be split into four groups, with no intermingling allowed. 

Additionally, STB has also recently inked a two-year marketing partnership with online travel agency Expedia to support the ongoing SingapoRediscovers campaign and promote Singapore to selected overseas markets as international travel resumes. The partnership will include a selection of staycations and bundle deals for locals on Expedia’s website from now until April next year – so you can start planning your leave. 

The increase of the group size for walking, cycling and kayaking tours in Singapore follows last week's announcement that we will soon be able to travel to Hong Kong for leisure. We'll keep our fingers crossed that things are slowly (but surely) getting better.
