With Singapore’s heat and humidity, the best way to cool off is with a chilly escape. Unfortunately, we can’t fly overseas to a winter country, so the next best thing is Snow City in the heart of Jurong. Not only will parents and kids be able to suit up in jackets and play with faux snow, but there are also activities such as a bumper car ride, whooshing down slides and cozying up in igloos. Pretty cool.
