Singapore is such a gorgeous country that gives tourists and locals alike a lot of reasons to fall in love with it. Perhaps its only fault is the weather, which can get unbearably hot and humid, especially during summer. But it’s easy to forgive that with so many amazing attractions that let you cool off and enjoy fun activities.
If you want to have a good time without getting sticky and soaked in sweat, here are the best places where you can escape the heat in Singapore!

- Not only can you play and completely wash away the heat, but you also get to meet dolphins and other adorable marine creatures at Adventure Cove Waterpark and Dolphin Island in Sentosa. It’s a great bonding activity for families and friends and a fun educational experience for kids. For a shot of adrenaline, don’t miss the popular Riptide Rocket, a hydro-magnetic rollercoaster, as well as many other tube rides of varying thrills.
Ola Beach Club (Sentosa)
- For beach bums, there’s no better place than Siloso Beach. Here, you can find Ola Beach Club offering a nice blend of chill and thrill in the water.
