Free Admission To Sentosa During March School Holidays

Free Admission To Sentosa During March School Holidays

Who doesn’t love a bargain?

From 14 March to 22 March, visitors will be allowed to enter Sentosa for free. The dates coincide with the March school holidays put in place by the Ministry of Education (MOE) making it an ideal time for families to unwind at the man-made island and explore its exciting diverse attractions together. All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.

A spokesman for Sentosa Development Corporation (SDC) said that, “a healthy dose of sunshine and fresh air could be a boost to one’s health.”

Besides offering guests a much needed respite from the Wuhan Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak which has spread excessive fear due to its contagious nature, the timely action aims to safeguard businesses that rely on tourists amid the pandemic by attracting more locals to make up for the shortfall in revenue. 

According to SDC, the integrated resort has witnessed a 20 per cent to 50 per cent plummet in visitors since the outbreak last month. This decline is in fact more drastic than what was encountered during the SARS epidemic in 2003 – which only saw a 19 per cent decrease in International Visitors Arrival (IVA). 

To allay fears of incoming visitors, Resorts World Singapore has ramped up precautionary measures across the resort to ensure a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone. These include: thermal scanners to carry out temperature screening for all visitors deployed at key entry points; increased frequency of cleaning, disinfection and sanitisation of guest touch points according to guidelines by the National Environment Agency; and hand sanitisers widely available across the entire resort. Guests are encouraged to adopt good personal hygiene practices nonetheless.
