Our island-city is super tiny, there’s no disputing that. But if you think it’s boring here just because of our lack of size, you’re just not looking in the right places. In this small but densely-packed country is an abundance of places to enjoy – and we’re not only talking about futuristic-looking tourist spots that have appeared in Hollywood movies like Hitman: Agent 47 and Crazy Rich Asians.

From the bustling town area to quieter heartlands, every corner in Singapore has something fun waiting in store – be it secluded nature spots to thrilling adventures and quirky eateries. We’ve selected 101 of these places worth checking out, whether you’re a first-time visitor from abroad or a bored local who needs inspiration for your weekend plans.

Go on and explore them if you’re daring enough, but warning: This is not an adventure for the faint-hearted. Especially not those who are afraid of dark, unfamiliar places which may possibly contain insects.

Kebun Baru bird singing

We’ve all seen the occasional uncle at a void deck with birdcage in hand. But what many don’t know is that there’s an avid community of birdkeepers in Singapore known as Kebun Baru Birdsinging Club, which gathers at a field in Ang Mo Kio to let their birds sing together after being raised on flag poles.

102. Soak your feet and cook eggs at Sembawang Hot Spring


Sembawang Hot Spring

Sembawang Hot Spring is Singapore’s only natural onsen of sorts. Once just a small tap spouting from the ground, it has now been revamped to have a triple-tiered pool. Well, you can’t strip and dip – the police will come at you for skinny dipping – but you are welcome to soak your feet in, or collect water in your own pail to relax on the benches further off.

You’re allowed to cook your own onsen eggs on-site too. Don’t forget to bring your own eggs, ladles, and containers if you want to do that. To maintain the cleanliness of the place, kindly avoid throwing your eggs into the water, and instead scoop the water out into your own pail for cooking.

104. Coast along on the Skyline Luge


Skyline Luge

You don’t need a driving license in order to cruise along on the Skyline Luge, which will have you twisting and turning through a trail full of slopes in a momentum-powered kart. The forest-flanked paths are scenic as they are, but here’s a tip: Visit at night if you want the whole track to be lit up with multi-coloured neon lights.

You can also opt to hop aboard the Skyride, a chairlift that will carry you up above the trees.

Some cafes roast and brew their own coffee in-house – and that makes all the difference to discerning coffee drinkers. Caffeine addicts can get their cuppa at one of the few coffee roaster cafes in Singapore, where the brews are said to be smoother and stronger in flavour. Many of them serve brunch or at least light confections, making them perfect for casual dates.

While we don’t experience Spring, Singapore too has her own “sakura” season where trees are abloom with delicate pink and white flowers all over. Okay, these aren’t actual cherry blossom trees, but rather, trumpet trees – but that doesn’t make them any less beautiful. 

Generally, these flowers tend to surface during the rainy season in March or April, and at times towards the third quarter of the year.

Find out where you can spot these flowers in our article here.

Right opposite the shiny modern mall of Bugis Junction is Bugis Street, a shopping street that might make you feel like you’re in another country. The first non air-conditioned floor mainly houses food stalls and souvenir shops, much like a street market. 

The second and third levels – thankfully with aircon – are chock-full of cheap clothing stores, beauty salons, and most recently, arcade games and claw machines.

Bugis Street

That said, clothing is still the most popular here. This is one of the few places in Singapore where haggling isn’t frowned upon, so don’t be afraid to strike a bargain with the store owners, especially if you’re buying multiple pieces of apparel!

Boutique hotels and cosy and comfy, but chalets are most ideal for large group staycations of parties because of the sheer number of people they can accommodate – some are even the size of a small bungalow. Besides, most of them have facilities like barbeque pits and swimming pools, and some even come with console games for added entertainment for your guests.

These start from as low as $100/night – divide the cost among all your friends and it’ll be quite a steal!

Find out more about these chalets in our article here.

Sometimes we really feel the aches after a long, tiring day – especially if you’re a serial OT-er who’s always hunched up in your office chair for hours on end. Give yourself a treat at a late-night massage parlour and get those knots all loosened up.

In case you’re wondering, no, these aren’t the sleazy sort – there are quite a few wholesome spas that open till the wee hours, some even 24 hours! A few of these even come with added perks like buffets and free movies.

Find out more about these late-night massage parlours in our article here.


116. Check out the quirkiest HDB blocks in Singapore


Singapore HDB

The beauty of our HDBs is that each cluster of blocks has its own unique set of block designs – some are minimalistic, some have murals splashed all over them, while others are so grand they can pass off for condos. And then there are the super old ones with features like spiral staircases and curved facades which we don’t see in the newer BTOs these days.

Go on a neighbourhood-hopping trail to check out these quirky HDB flats – find out more about them in our articles here and here.


117. Watch the sunset at Yishun Dam

For some of the best unobstructed sunsets, visit Yishun Dam, a quiet spot in an ulu corner of the North. There isn’t much here, but it’s a good area for sunset gazing and picnics. Some people even bring their own disposable BBQ pits here for a mini cookout, and at times you’ll see fishermen bringing in their catch.

It used to be only accessible by car since it’s pretty impossible to walk here from Yishun MRT, but good thing there’s now bus service 103 for better convenience.

118. Munch on street eats at a night bazaar/pasar malam


pasar malam singapore

Taiwan isn’t the only country that’s big on bazaars. Known as pasar malam (literally translated to “night market” from Malay), these operate as pop-ups around the country with an irregular schedule – though you can usually find them during festive periods like Chinese New Year and Hari Raya.

Each night market comes with a standard food selection of traditional favourites like Ramly burgers, tutu kueh, and tea eggs, Though these days, there are more and more newfangled food stalls selling bubble tea, crepes, and ice cream in quirky flavours. You’ll also be able to find household items like bedsheets, mobile phone accessories, and plants.

If you’d rather not leave it up to chance and wait for one to appear in your neighbourhood, follow this page for regular updates on the latest night markets around the country.


119. Zipline across the beach with Mega Adventure


Mega Adventure Sentosa

If you’ve heard screams coming from above you at Sentosa, that would probably be from the MegaZip at Mega Adventure – a giant zipline that starts from 75 metres high up in the trees, stretching 450 metres across the sea to a strip of shore at Siloso Beach. Now that’s certainly a huge step-up from the flying fox lines we played on in parks as kids!

Mega Adventure also has a high-elements course called MegaClimb, and a MegaJump tower from which you’ll take a 15-metre leap of faith – while strapped to a safety harness of course. Team building sessions can be arranged as well.

SKAI, on the 70th floor of Swissotel The Stamford

We may live in a concrete jungle, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Our ultra-modern cityscape is a beautiful sight, especially from way up high – and one way to get a good eyeful of this is by dining at a high-rise restaurant. These restaurants go up to as high as 70 floors and will make a romantic backdrop for a fancy dinner date.

121. Bring out your inner Tony Hawk at East Coast’s Xtreme SkatePark


East Coast’s Xtreme SkatePark

We all know of the skatepark at Somerset, but Xtreme SkatePark at East Coast Park is one that possibly trumps it. While a little out of the way, it comes with a good variation of ramps and slopes, and ample space for both beginners and Tony Hawk-level sk8er bois to practise their ollies and kickflips – without the fear of knocking into anyone.

A defining feature of this skatepark is a 3.6 metre-deep Vertical Bowl, where you can glide up and down from one end to another. This concave zone has become a popular spot for photographers – check out a fashion shoot we did there in our article here.
