Special Rates You Probably Didn’t Know About Singapore Attractions

Latest updates: 2nd October 2016

A little did we know about there are special rates for children with special needs in Singapore. Good news, there is plenty of it.

These are the attractions that readily follow the Singapore Government’s lead supporting disability inclusion that includes invisible disability (Straits Times : ‘Your son has special needs? So do my dogs’)

Thank you for the effort and generosity given by Singapore attractions to make the outing with special needs children filled with acceptance in society.

Here’s the list of special rate tickets for children with special needs:

  1. I am a mother with a daughter, 19, with special needs. I appreciate the thoughtful of the above organisations giving special concession rate for the entrance tickets to people with special needs and their care giver. However, it only benefited mostly by DDR ID card holders. Those with SG Enabled card are denied of most of the concessions. This is very disappointing. For those holding Sg Enabled card do have special needs and they are no more in special need school due to their age and neither can they work due to their challenges.

    I hope the concession can also extend to Sg Enabled card holders as it would ease the financial burden of the family thus encourages them to bring their kid to out and giving them the exposure opportunity of social interaction.

    Thank you.
