Annual passes oftentimes feel like they cost an arm and maybe a kidney but in a small country like Singapore with a little one, you are bound to visit certain attractions at least three times. Or ten times. And when you compare the cost of each individual trip to the annual pass, you’ll be wondering why you didn’t get an annual pass earlier.
To help you save some dollars in the long run, we’ve compiled a list of 7 Annual Family Memberships with the most value.
