For good buys, go North

Discounts and promotions are aplenty in the region

The June holidays are here again, but to have a good time, you don’t need to pack the whole family on a jaunt across the Causeway.

Just stay put in Singapore and head north, where there is no lack of shopping, dining and entertainment. Here is a quick round-up of where to go:

HOT SPOTS

Did you know that 12.7 million visitors dropped by YewTee Point last financial year? Key tenants include NTUC FairPrice, Koufu food court, Watsons and Eighteen Chefs. Another mall that is just as well loved is Junction 8, which counts Din Tai Fung, BHG and innisfree among its tenants.

The relatively new Waterway Point is packed with shopping and eating joints, as well as the largest suburban cineplex in Singapore that offers 11 screens.

Or head to what is now billed as the largest mall in northern Singapore — Northpoint City. This integrated development has more than 400 retail and dining outlets spread across its two wings.

Foodies can drop by The Seletar Mall, which is known for its extensive suite of dining choices, such as Hai Di Lao, Ramen Tenji and Ramen Hitoyoshi.
