A bond so special that there’s a festival for it; Raksha Bandhan is the day for revisiting some old yet cherished traditions, sharing gifts and creating moments of love and joy.
So if you’re looking for ideas to celebrate the festival in Singapore but can’t find answers to the where and how, then scroll down for the recipe of a perfect Raksha Bandhan celebration in Singapore.
Add adventure to your day with a visit to The Karting Arena in Singapore. Feel the adrenaline pumping in your veins as you experience go-karting like never before on Singapore’s first electrical karting track. Indulge in a fun race and give your sister or brother the rare opportunity to feel like a racer for a day.
How Art thou
If your brother or sister is a creative soul, then art jam studios are the place to be at. Let your inner Picasso run wild on canvas at places such as Artify Studio or Arteastique. Relish flavourful food and flow with the colours. You can also add to the artsy day with a calligraphy class at Naiise.
Explore the innumerable flavours offered at Hawker Street and encounter the best yet the cheapest Michelin-starred food in Singapore. If due to some reason you or your partner-in-crime can’t leave the house, calling a chef for restaurant-like food at your home is also possible.
Shop till You Drop
Undeniably, Singapore is the place for some great shopping. Surprise your sister with the ultimate gift that she’ll (probably) never forget by visiting the Orchard Road if malls are your preferred location. For authentic Singapore experience, head to Mustafa Shopping Centre opened 24*7.
Visit the Pet Paradise
If your brother or sister loves dogs, Oasis Second Chance Animal Shelter (OSCAS) should be your address for the day. Say hello to hundreds of rescued dogs living under one roof. You can visit them, indulge in some charity by bringing food for them or even adopt one. If this isn’t perfect (and pawdorable) we hardly know what is.
While your ideal Raksha Bandhan is planned, don’t forget the essentials. Order cakes, flowers and rakhi online from Ferns N Petals in Singapore and select the best Raksha Bandhan gifts for sister with just a few clicks.
