The whole world, particularly the South Asian countries, felt the most extended halt in international business and leisure travel. However, Singapore has recently announced a new pilot program where a new business travel pass will be generated where the owners can travel to multiple countries abiding by strict itinerary schedules. You can read more about this here.

As Singapore becomes more accessible and ready for tourists, let’s put some light on the business traveller. Anyone planning to fly into Singapore can check the latest travel updates about Singapore here.

A business trip sounds too mundane to most people. And sometimes it does turn out to be a slight bit boring. But that must not be the case always, right? After all, there are ways to make it a fun business trip too. There is a new term in the travel dictionary, making rounds, called “Bleisure” travel. It is a hybrid of Business + Leisure travel.

In an article by BBC, Jeanne Liu of the Global Business Travel Association says, “Worldwide, more than one in three business travellers will add a leisure component to at least one of their business trips this year. Travel wellbeing relates to job satisfaction, which means people stay productive and stay longer in their jobs.”

Here are some fun and quick activities you can do in Singapore 

We’ll tackle some activities business travellers can do in a day during their business trips.
