National Service has evolved drastically since its formation. Our military camps have seen tremendous quality of life improvements, our weaponry is fitted with the most modern augments and our training systems are optimised for urban and jungle warfare.
We embrace new experiences, for it is in our blood that we are ever adventurous, and it is only befitting that we commemorate the 55th anniversary of National Service with new discoveries and encounters.

Spoil your taste buds as you eat all the ice cream you want, while learning about its nuances and history. Of course, you will have to visit its legendary sprinkle pool (you heard that right – an entire pool of confectionary goodness) and its dragon playground while you’re here!

3. Singapore Discovery Centre
At the Singapore Discovery Centre, watch our local tales and aspirations come to life with its gallery of multi-sensational exhibitions and thematic mosaics. If you’re more of an adrenaline junkie, you will love its Black Lake laser battlefield. Set in an apocalyptic alternate realm, the battlefield is infested with zombies and beastly creatures, and you can only rid the realm of these invaders with a squad of like-minded teammates. Puzzle lovers will definitely enjoy its escape room – The Black Lake Facility. Stretching over 13 rooms and four evocative story chapters, this puzzle room promises fascinating discoveries.
SAFRA members enjoy 1-for-1 tickets (weekdays only) if you use your NS55 credits to Singapore Discovery Centre’s escape room and laser tag arena till 19 Aug 2022. More info at www.safra.sg/membership/ns55-recognition-package-singapore/ns55-deals/promotions-with-usage-of-ns55-credit

4. Wings of Time
Poetically named, Wings of Time is a light and water show that can be described as illuminating, visceral and simply spectacular! Follow the mystical tale of Shahbaz, a prehistoric raptor that traverses through groundbreaking eras like the Industrial Revolution and iconic landmarks like the Mayan Pyramids in a bid to find his way home. Take in the narrative’s artistic significance as it is accentuated by radiant pyrotechnic displays and enthralling theatric effects. This is a show that will leave you demanding an encore!

5. The Intan Peranakan Home Museum
With urbanisation being as prevalent as it is today, it can be incredibly easy to overlook some of our country’s historical fragments. The cultural history of the Peranakans is arguably one of the most compelling yet, with artistic artefacts and fascinating rituals reflective of its complexities and deep influence. The Intan Peranakan Home Museum is one of Singapore’s most comprehensive chroniclers of its cultural significance, with a whole gallery of antiques and information that promises a day of insight and intrigue.
