40 Amazing Ideas for June Hols (That Are Fun for Adults Too!)

From wildlife spotting with marine biologists, to hidden forts deep in the jungle!
Last updated: 13 May 2022 - 17 min read

When we were kids, the only place we could go to during June hols was the Zoo, Bird Park or Sentosa - and even then, Sentosa only had a water park! Now, Sentosa has hidden forts deep in the jungle, our intertidal zones are teeming with rare marine life, and there are incredible island hopping experiences to do! Here are some of our favourites!

For more ideas, check out our full June Holiday Collection here.
