Need a break from the city? Check out these farm tours & activities 

Singapore is a huge tropical urban resort in itself, apart from swanky shopping malls and high-rise buildings, there are farms in remote areas that most of us hardly will stop by. You won’t be able to find any strawberries farm here, instead, there are other types of farms awaiting your visit!

Remember to mask up and practise safe distancing when you’re outside.

1. Staycation and Farm Tour

While there is no farm stay in Singapore, you can still go on a mini holiday in the northernmost region of Singapore. The 4-hour farm tour begins early in the morning at 9am, where you will be visiting three farms in the region and then enjoy a one night staycation at a 3-star hotel! Book your experience here.
