Convention is for families
Picture this: You get the chance to treat your family to an unforgettable vacation in one of Asia’s top sunny destinations. How? By bringing them along to Singapore for the Rotary International Convention. You’ll already have your hotel and flight booked, with a great base for sightseeing because the venues are close to museums, adventure parks, and activities for all ages. By registering as guests, your loved ones can enjoy the big-name entertainers and inspiring keynote speakers at the 25-29 May convention and join you and the entire Rotary family in Sharing Hope With the World.
Book tours in Singapore and nearby countries on the Host Organization Committee site, rotarysingapore2024.org. Stay on the island to learn about food, sustainability, or the nation’s rich culture. Or hop to Bangkok, for example, to take in the city’s famed street life and wander the ruins of the ancient city Ayutthaya, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
In Singapore, here are just a few family-friendly spots. At the Marina Bay Sands complex hosting breakout sessions, an ArtScience Museum exhibit transforms your drawings into computerized art on a “lush digital jungle” canvas you walk on.
Adjacent to the National Stadium convention site is a small water park on top of a building with sweeping skyline views. Splash-N-Surf has a kids playground and a wave pool for prebooked skim-boarding.
Venture to Singapore’s Sentosa resort island (take the cable car!) to explore S.E.A. Aquarium, Universal Studios Singapore with its Jurassic Park zone, or Skyline Luge where you zoom down tree-lined trails on carts. — Eva Remijan-Toba
