If you’re looking for more ways to get out of your house without spending too much on hotels, a Singapore center dedicated to Malay history is opening its grounds to the public for a night of camping.

Activities lined up for the December event include cooking the traditional Malaysian rice dish Nasi Kerabu and touring the surrounding Kampong Glam area and its graffiti murals. 

The Malay Heritage Center at Sultan Gate will turn into a campsite for groups of up to five people per night at S$450 per group. Online registration opens tomorrow.

The two-day itinerary also includes a tour of a special exhibition on Malays of Banjarese ancestry, who are native to Indonesia’s South Kalimantan province, as well as a morning yoga session and breakfast before checking out. Campers are expected to arrive at around 2pm and leave the next day by noon. 

Each tent is also complete with comfortable mattresses, sheets, pillows, portable aircon, fans, as well as a projector screen so you can chill and watch Netflix before sleeping. Be sure to bring insect repellent, just in case. Full itinerary below:
