You might often feel like there’s nothing to do in Singapore, especially if you’re the kind to go to every happening cafe, every hyped-up mall, searching for unique experiences in every nook and cranny of our sunny island.

The truth is, however Singapore is interesting enough for you to keep yourself - and your better half - entertained without burning a hole in your pocket.

Enter SAFRA Youth Network (SYN), which has organised some engaging and exciting activities that you can participate in for less than S$20 per activity - cheaper than some places, we know.

Here, you’ll find the perfect opportunity for you and your date to pick up new skills or demonstrate the skills you already have.
