There’s no reason to be bummed as the holiday break winds down—in fact, it’s much better to enjoy your time off while you still can! And Singapore is a fantastic place to explore with its endless array of recreational activities that range from stunning natural attractions to massive amusement parks. Here, we share 10 of our favorite things to do in Singapore, whether you’re taking the kids out for fun and games or hanging out with friends before the next term begins. Make sure you end the holidays on a high note!
1. Embark On A Summer Adventure At Ola Beach Club
Head to Sentosa for good old summer fun at the sun-soaked Ola Beach Club. It’s one of the best places in Singapore to enjoy the island with the Hawaiian-inspired theme, water sports, and the idyllic beachfront location. Hop on a single- or double-person kayak to explore the waters surrounding the beach club or get a fun beachy workout on a paddleboard.
2. Go On An Island Hopping Tour
Sail away from the daily grind in an island-hopping cruise on a ferry. A wonderful activity for adventure seekers, the ferry tour will whisk you away to Singapore’s Southern Islands. Marvel at the mangroves and exotic wildlife of St. John’s Island, then cross the causeway to relax on Lazarus Island’s pristine shores. At Kusu Island, discover Malay shrines, Chinese temples, and even a tortoise sanctuary.
3. Sampan Boat Ride At Marina Bay Sands
Prefer to stay closer to the shore? If you and your family or friends aren’t too keen on sea exploration, hop on a traditional Chinese sampan boat at Marina Bay Sands instead. Drift along the Canal of the Shoppes for a relaxing city cruise that provides a unique sightseeing experience in Singapore for tourists and locals alike. Admire the eco-friendly Rain Oculus, a 22-meter giant bowl that gathers the rainwater filling the canal.
4. Delight In Tea Time In The Courtyard At A 5-Star Hotel
Set aside a few hours and bid the holiday break goodbye with afternoon tea in a refined setting. The sunlit Courtyard at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore is one of the best places for a leisurely afternoon of tea and delicious bite-sized pastries. Surrounded by luxurious interiors, it’s easy to get lost in this English-style experience in Singapore.
5. Play All Day At Amazonia Fun Centre
If you’re a parent looking for a fun-filled activity in Singapore, a good place to visit is Amazonia Fun Centre. It’s one of the longest-running indoor play centers in the island nation. From toddler-safe play areas to the giant indoor play gym with the tallest wave slide in Singapore, every youngster will find something to do in Amazonia.
6. Interact With Friendly Mascots At Pororo Park Singapore
Another kiddie paradise on the island is Pororo Park Singapore where Pororo the Little Penguin and his friends are waiting! Children and adults alike can enjoy interacting with the live mascots while exploring the indoor playground, whether they prefer jumping into the Shark Ball Pool or climbing over the slides at Poby’s Play Gym.
7. Indulge In Endless Playtime With The Family At Kiztopia
Spanning 18,000 square feet (1,672 square meter) with 18 different play areas, Kiztopia is a great place to visit, especially for families with children ages 12 and below. Guests can spend hours without running out of things to do, from the ball pits and slides to the cooking station and trains.
8. Attend A Workshop
Get the learning curve started ahead of classes by attending a workshop or two that will allow you to unleash your creativity. There are plenty of learning opportunities to choose from in Singapore, whether you want to make lush plant artwork or handcrafting leather souvenirs. Bring a few friends and get inspired to learn a new skill together!
9. Look Over Singapore’s Stunning Skyline At The Marina Bay Sands
If you’d rather spend the rest of the holiday break in complete relaxation, one of the laidback activities you can indulge in is visiting the Skypark Observation Deck at Marina Bay Sands. Marvel at the dazzling cityscape and enjoy amazing views of Singapore’s most popular attractions. Tip: the best time to go up the deck is during sunsets, when the views are extra stunning.
10. Enjoy A Mouthwatering Meal From The Sky
Finally, savor a unique meal together up in the sky. One of the popular attractions in Singapore is the cable car at Mount Faber, which offers amazing views of the city from the sky. The cable car sky dining experience takes the experience another step further by serving a delectable meal as you drift through the skies.
