Best way to take advantage of a long weekend? Book a staycation. We have something for everyone – the spa junkie, the budget conscious, the parent and the romantic at heart.

Take in the festive Hari Raya atmosphere with a walk around the historic Kampong Glam area. Uncover a curious blend of Malay folk traditions and Islam in the legends. Don't miss this hidden cultural enclave where Singapore's local Muslim culture thrives.

Halloween is also just around the corner; gear up for a spook-tastic time. We help you plan the scariest weekend possible and tell you what to wear, what to eat and where to get your spook on.

What better way to maximize your weekend fun than at Asia’s favorite playground – Sentosa Island. You probably have been there, done that but glance through our dawn-to-dusk guide and pick the things you may have missed. We promise a day full of Sentosa fun, and then some.

It’s a long weekend off for adults, but a whole month (and more) off for the kids. Don’t let idle minds play havoc, enroll your kids into these fun and interactive classes. Who knows, you may unlock some hidden potential.

New parents? Take advantage of the deals, and discounts available at the mega Baby Expo 2012.

Celebrate traditional, independent microbreweries at Singapore’s first ever Craft Beer Week. Go bar hopping and expect events and promotions at over 100 participating outlets across the island.

'Nutcracker On Ice' trailer

End the weekend with the spectacular Nutcracker On Ice – the dazzling production by The Imperial Ice Stars. The Marina Bay Sands Grand Theatre turns into an ice fantasy and exhilarating displays of breathtaking high-speed leaps and throws enthrall.
