What a year it has been. We started off 2022 still in the grips of the pandemic. However, things started to change in the second half of the year as we shifted toward “Heightened Alert” and things started to open up. We are thankful for where we are right now, as we have been able to resume activities and even be able to travel once again.
Looking back at 2022, it has also been a year where a variety of family-friendly places have opened up in Singapore. As we approach the end of the year, here’s a look back at some of our favourite family-friendly places in Singapore.
