SingapoRediscovers promotions extend across accommodation, attractions, dining, shopping and tours. Pick whatever that tickles your fancy to energise your minds, body and souls, mums!
To make it easy, I’ve rounded up 9 fun and interesting ways to spend your “me time” – things you can finally do without a child in your Tula or stroller! Whether you prefer to be alone, or enjoying the company with your pals, I hope these ideas help you to explore something different or learn more about yourself too!
1: For the mums who want to sip some alcoholic drink on a learning journey
It’s easy to just step into a nightspot and order that glass on a TGIF. But it’s a different kind of fun to learn how your favourite gin is distilled, brewed and finally complete the tour with a tasting of 3 kinds of Gin. Book your alcoholic adventure with the Brass Lion Distillery Gin, Tonic & the Empire Tour organised by Xperience DMC. Well, you can extend your day-out with more drinks and catchup with your friends after that!
2: For the mums who want to pit their FBI skills against others
You know what they say about mums being fab FBI agents when it comes to sussing out our kids’ mischief. From asking the right question to know which kid was lying, to finding out who doodled on the white wall with markers, it’s not uncommon for mums, right? Here’s your chance to use your investigative skills to solve the mystery and sniff out the murderer through the Chinatown Murders Game Tour organised by Tribe. Think of it as a larger-than-life game of Cluedo from our childhood days! How about roping in your ex-schoolmates to relieve the good old fun?
3: For the mums who want to shoot her woes away
Most mum of boys would be familiar with NERF guns and how much excitement they bring! Grab your pals and make it an adult challenge as you conquer the various arenas at Nerf Action Xperience. These adrenaline-pumping and strategy team games make you put on your smart mama hats as you battle your way through multiple-themed activity zones and avoid getting hit! Time to put your reflex and agility to the test with their different games too.
Smart mum’s tip: Maximise your me time and extend your playdate with a hotel stay! This great value staycation package at Mandarin Oriental includes the Nerf Action Xperience too!
4: For the mums who can’t wait to unleash their daredevil side
If jumping off 47 metres above sea level sounds like your kind of adrenaline booster, brave up for Triple Giant Swing and Bungy Jump at AJ Hackett Sentosa for an exciting time! Don’t belittle that huge swing – it’ll bring you up to a height of 40m before it gets released where you’ll drop and rush towards the ground, at over 100km/hour! Not for the faint-hearted mamas, for sure!
5: For the mums who miss the laidback life
Get on a bum boat and head to Pulau Ubin to explore the kelongs, fish farms and nature through the Kelong and Pulau Ubin Private Boat Tour. Soak in the rustic charms of the kampong days as you cruise along the waters and breeze. Opt for a meal at Singapore’s only floating kelong restaurant and embrace a leisurely fishing session now that you’ve some time to go slow！
6: For the mums who love getting wet and wild
Another one for the thrill-seeking mums – be a big kid at HydroDash and combat obstacles courses at Singapore’s first floating aqua park in Sentosa! Grab your friends to climb, slide, dash, and bounce to your heart’s content – almost like how your kids go crazy at a bouncy castile, right?
7: For the mums who want to sharpen their culinary skills
Always wanted to awaken your inner Martha Stewart but couldn’t bear to invest in an expensive culinary lesson? Now’s the time to upgrade your cooking talents plus enrich your knowledge about cultures by redeeming your SingapoRediscovers vouchers!

8: For the Instagram mums who want to be in photos – finally!
I know most of us have tons of pictures of our kids and we’re hardly in any, unless we tell the #instagramhusband to get to work. Embark on an #instawalk with your group of trigger-happy mamas and get to be in the focus this time at Instawalk Tour with an Influencer in Bugis, Waterloo and Kampong Glam! This trail around Singapore’s hotspots for photographers offers a visual feast and a carefree way to discover more about our local culture, traditions, and history.
