Now that we've seen more restaurants, bars and shops reopening in Phase 2, the popular attractions in Singapore are also starting to open its doors. Pretty soon, you'll be able to sit on a rollercoaster at Universal Studios Singapore and bounce off the walls at um, Bounce and walk around the gardens at the Flower Dome – but with safety measures in place of course (expect this to be the norm). These measures include contact tracing via SafeEntry and temperature screenings. On top of that, expect lower venue capacity so booking in advance will be ideal – unless you don't mind waiting.  

We've compiled the opening dates of these spots in this list if you're planning to visit. Do note that although some of these places are open, some areas, premises and activities are still not permitted for now.

The sculptures are placed at various locations in the Cloud Forest and are based on three themes: A Quiet Respite in the Garden, Beautiful Memories and Man and Nature as One. These sculptures were brought out of the artist's actual studio and garden nestled in the mountains of Xizhi in Taipei.

The app also allows you to scan your tickets, perform SafeEntry check-in and check-out, and get real-time updates on crowd levels in the Gardens – all to ensure a safe and hassle-free, contactless experience.
