The March holidays are almost here, which means school is out for the kids! For parents, it could mean having to think of activities and places for the entire family for some quality FAM time.
While travelling overseas might be the last thing on our minds during the crucial COVID-19 period, with over 126,145 cases globally (as of 12 March 2020), it does not mean that we cannot continue living our lives “as normally as possible", according to Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
“If you’re worried about travel restrictions, consider a staycation at a local hotel," Mr Lee said in his social media accounts.
And that seems like the next best option, especially during the shorter period of March holidays. As compared to a vacation, a staycation makes for a convenient and cheaper option. Plus parents, you can take this time to unwind from the stresses of work and life.
