In collaboration with Mandarin Oriental, HSBC Premier card members
can enjoy an exclusive HSBC Premier Family experience combining
five-star hospitality at the Singapore Zoo this Saturday, 13 August.
The invitation for the closed-door private event has been extended to
select members, allowing them and their families to have the zoo all to
themselves for several hours before it opens to public.
The highlight of the event is the family fun race that kicks off at
7am, taking families on a route around the zoo for them to observe the
animals while getting their fitness on.

At the lodge, families can also enjoy a myriad of kids-friendly activities such as:
• Art workshop: Children will be guided on creating art pieces based on themes surrounding sustainability and a green future.
Face painting: A mother-daughter professional painter duo can apply
child-safe, natural paints on children for them to resemble their
favourite animal at the zoo.
• Animal enrichment: Parents and
children can work together to create enrichment devices and toys for the
animals at the zoo using recycled materials such as egg cartons.
Build a Bic: Teams will be tasked to build a kid’s bicycle from scratch
which will then be donated to underprivileged children.
Mandarin Oriental’s Cycle for More Bic-cation gives travellers the chance of embarking on a sustainable and eco-friendly adventure in Singapore on two wheels.
Participants can also add on to the weekend of family fun by opting
in for a Bic-cation at Mandarin Oriental the night before the event, and
on the event day itself.
Each nightly Bic-cation stay includes complimentary usages of
bicycles for both adults and children; specially designed cycling
experiences mapped out by Mandarin Oriental; healthy and sustainable
snacks; guaranteed early check-in at 12pm and late check-out at 5pm for
club rooms; double upgrade from Deluxe Room to Marina Bay View room
