Singapore is well-known for its fast-paced and dynamic urban scene. After all, it is one of the most technologically-advanced nations in Southeast Asia. However, the island-country still boasts a slew of less-explored gems and experiences that never fail to amaze locals and foreigners alike. From kayaking in a mangrove forest to sailing at sunset on a cruise, here are some of our top picks:
Kayaking in Pulau Ubin
Teeming with mangrove trees, Pulau Ubin makes for the perfect destination for mangrove forest kayaking. In fact, this activity is possibly the longest pure mangrove kayaking expedition in all of Singapore, covering a distance of 8.27 kilometers in total!
The entire excursion lasts for up to six hours and the route will lead you to the wetlands of Chek Jawa and into the streams that cut through the island. Keep your eyes peeled throughout your journey, as sightings of animals such as otters and monitor lizards are quite frequent in this area.

Singapore Island Hopping
Singapore’s surrounding waters are dotted by quaint islets that are ideal for island-hopping. Board a high-speed ferry and set forth on an adventure-filled day to visit the sun-soaked isles of St. John’s, Kusu or Tortoise Island, and Sisters’ Island—all of which are steeped in Singapore’s rich history.
Skyline Sunset Cruise
Sun-drenched Singapore is best seen during the golden hour—even better on a cruise that will take you to Singapore’s Southern Straits. Be mesmerized by the island-state’s breathtaking coastline from the glittering waters, as you sail past Sentosa Island and Marina Bay at sunset. If you wish to take a breather from the hustles and bustles of the city, this experience offers you a respite with a view.
Southern Straits Dinner Cruise
If you’re in need of ideas for your next date night, how about a romantic dinner on a cruise? Tag your SO along on a memorable evening and sail to St. John’s Island as you take in the vistas of the Lion City’s iconic cityscape all the while enjoying a special gourmet dinner made especially for you!
