Singapore Airlines has launched a new set of activities on its KrisFlyer Experiences platform, with a focus on the upcoming Father’s Day holiday (19 June). Redemptions this time include a sunset cinema experience at Tanjong Beach Club, a Kidztopia day out, and a dining package at Night Safari.
Redeem a special Father’s Day Evening in the Wild Dinner experience at the Night Safari, or a specially curated afternoon of activities, inclusive of dinner, with your little ones at Kiztopia.
For those looking for a relaxed night out, join us for an elevated outdoor cinema experience at “Asia’s most beautiful outdoor cinema”, Hendrick’s Sunset Cinema. Arrive early, enjoy a refreshing cocktail as the sun sets, savour dinner on the beach and watch the latest James Bond film, NO TIME TO DIE under the stars.
Experiences start from 3,000 KrisFlyer miles each, available while stocks last.
|❓ What are KrisFlyer Experiences?|
KrisFlyer Experiences launched back in January 2020, allowing members to redeem their KrisFlyer miles for money-can’t-buy experiences. Past experiences have included various online workshops, high-end dining packages, and a KrisFlyer cruise-to-nowhere.
KrisFlyer Experiences can be redeemed for the member or his/her friends and family. They are non-refundable once redeemed.

Is it worth it?
The whole point of KrisFlyer Experiences is to redeem “money-can’t-buy” experiences, but I’m not seeing anything here that really meets that criteria.
Well, fine. Hendrick’s Sunset Cinema is running a private screening for KrisFlyer members, so it’d technically fall into that category.
But otherwise, tickets normally go for S$44.80 with a complimentary cocktail. Redeeming via KrisFlyer Experiences costs 4,000 miles, which at a 1.5 cents/mile valuation would be worth ~S$60. The KrisFlyer Experiences redemption package does include a complimentary alcoholic or non-alcoholic drink and a S$20 food voucher though.
A 3-hour package at Kidztopia for a child and one accompanying adult with a kids meal voucher costs S$51.80, whereas the KrisFlyer Experiences package costs 6,000 miles for two persons and a buffet dinner. It doesn’t seem like particularly good value either, unless the spread includes lobster and caviar.
Dining at the Night Safari is a novel experience, though it’s also open to any member of the public willing to pay S$280++ per person. That costs ~S$660 per couple, versus 35,000 miles via KrisFlyer Experiences, and perhaps might be the best value redemption of all.
But again, none of these are particularly exclusive experiences, and it’s just another way to pay with miles instead of cash.
The latest batch of KrisFlyer Experiences offers some ideas for Father’s Day activities, but as always, you’ll need to do the math and decide whether it’s worth burning your miles for these.
I personally don’t see anything here worth springing for, but then again, I’m not a father.
At least I don’t think so.
