The Best Staycation & Deals in Singapore – The Newest Trend in Sustainable Tourism

The origin of the term "staycation," is said to come from the United States of America where it plays on the words "vacation" and "stay-at-home," to create a word to mean the essence of your being on holiday, but doing it either in the comfort of your own home, city or country. Embrace the familiar.


Ecological Awareness, Health & Safety, Economic Crisis

Staycations have recently found quite the popularity especially among college students and working-class millennials who would prefer to go on holidays that don't break the bank. But it is not just the result of an economic crisis that has brought these holidays where you look at the familiar with a brand-new perspective, into the light.
Despite a staycation being quite a luxurious concept, especially in the light of the COVID-19 pandemic which has forced all countries to shut down borders, it originated during an economic crisis. In 2008, the market crash in the US resulted in a new era of households who could no longer afford large budgets on their vacations. Over time, the ecological benefits of staycations were also realised as the time spent travelling was reduced drastically.
The pandemic brought the appeal of the staycation back with gusto, especially as you can stay right where you are, in Singapore and still enjoy all the perks you would expect in a holiday overseas.


Plenty of Benefits and the Power of Sustainability

In Singapore, coliving and slow tourism have recently risen to notoriety. Both forms of tourism focus on sustainability and the conservation of resources while at the same time exploring the nearby attractions that you have always ignored because it is closer to home. You can pick among the different accommodation offers at coliving spaces the likes of Lyf Funan. There are promotions such as the extended stay promotion that offers self-contained studio apartments that are completely furnished and will completely rid you of worries of utility bills, housekeeping and WIFI.


What To Do During a Staycation

So if you are going to plan a staycation in Singapore, here are some fun things that you can to do together with your friends during the last few months of 2020.
a. Commune with Nature
Switch off your phones, leave your laptop and your work behind for the most perfect staycation. Focus instead on making memories with your friends and family in the shared living space.
b. Consider Your Touristic Impact
Think about how your internal tourism could help the industry at this time, as well as how the fact that you will be coliving on your staycation will aid the race towards a sustainable future
c. Learn Something New
While you are on a staycation it is an invitation to look up all how you can look at everything with fresh eyes. This would include Singapore, your life and your surroundings. Take the time to learn something new or fall in love again with something in your life that brings you joy and make it a staycation to remember.
