News editor Karamjit Kaur looks back on the past 12 months, as Singapore marks a year since we entered the circuit breaker on April 7, 2020.
An ice cream museum and another thrill ride in Clarke Quay are some of the new attractions Singaporeans can expect from this year, as Singapore seeks to enhance its attractiveness to prepare its hard-hit tourism sector for recovery. Sentosa will also welcome its own attraction next year, the SkyHelix Sentosa, an open-air rotating gondola that will ascend 35m above ground and offer views of Singapore’s southern coast. There are also plans to have a new attraction at the vacant site between Somerset Skate Park and Killiney Road, as part of a plan to test-bed new concepts in Orchard Road.
Instead of waiting for world borders to reopen, Singapore needs to disrupt the status quo. For the tourism industry here, the next big moves lie in sustainable travel solutions, technological innovation and holistic wellness. This was highlighted by speakers at the opening of the Tourism Industry Conference on Wednesday (April 7). Kevin Cheong, chairman of the Association of Singapore Attractions, weighs in.
