7 special deals to experience the sustainable side of Singapore



If you are running out of things to do on our sunny island, here’s some environmentally friendly inspiration that will also save you some cash.

Did you know that there are still kelongs (offshore fishing facilities) in Singapore, and that we can visit them to learn more about the residents’ way of life and sustainable fish farming practices?

For foodies, pencil in an eye-opening visit to an expansive edible garden with a view, followed by a delightful meal at a stylish restaurant, where you can savour the freshest greens that were handpicked just moments ago.

Or perhaps, getting elbow-deep in action better suits your fancy. Go on a food rescue mission and transform what you collect into useful compost.

These are just some ways to experience the sustainable side of Singapore. Read on for more special offers that you can enjoy with DBS and POSB cards.
