This year has hurled us into a whirlwind of worldwide panic caused by the pandemic. And it left us all disoriented and derailed just as quickly. Plans changed, put on hold, shelved, or dumped completely. A lot of businesses have shut down and schedules and protocols change from time to time. Everything seems uncertain.

Now that the year is drawing to a close, businesses are slowly reopening and adjusting to the new normal. If you are one of those wondering which businesses are open, here are some of them. Note that this list focuses on resorts and theme parks only. Please check and follow their health and safety protocols.

We also included Klook links in case some of you are interested in booking and snatching a good deal. Klook usually offers promos like its WORTH THE WAIT discount codes.
