You often go on vacation to perform activities you love, de-stress from the daily grind, or to spend some quality time with your family. That being said, going on vacation often has more to do with satisfying your craving for adventure than anything else.
But a vacation centred around learning is also a unique prospect — one that Singapore can readily offer. The country’s historical and cultural landmarks are interesting places in Singapore for the family to visit and learn about.
Bask in a Diverse Culture
Singapore is known for its multicultural environment, something you’ll appreciate once you see it up front. It is this same mix of cultures and faces from all over the globe that makes Singapore a hub for various cultural sites that every family, including yours, must see.
A good stop on your family’s learning journey is the Armenian Church of St. Gregory, The Illuminator. Singapore’s oldest church is an architectural masterpiece. Meanwhile, if you’re eager to learn more about how Singapore came to be, the Asian Civilizations Museum displays artefacts from all around Asia with an emphasis on the ancestral heritage of Singapore.
These are just some sites that you could visit. There are certainly more if you look around. You and your family will be pleased to learn about the rich history that lies beyond what you see.
More Than Meets the Eye
Visiting a famous landmark is enough for most people, but you can add a different twist to your family’s vacation by hiring a tour guide that will enlighten you on the histories of Singapore’s most prominent destinations.
You may be surprised to know just how much history there is to certain monuments. For example, did you know that the Merlion’s fish body is a nod to Singapore’s humble beginnings as a fishing village? Or that Sentosa was once a fortified passage to the Keppel Harbour?
Going on a learning escapade can be just as great as any other activity out there. Never think twice about bringing your family on an educational journey as it’s a holistic experience.
