5 Hidden Places in S’pore That Let You Experience Stuff That You’d Have Never Imagined

Movies, eating and shopping will lose its luster as you do it more and more, and we’re speaking from experience.

We’ve always thought that in order to combat the boredom you feel in Singapore, we have to take the fastest flight out of Singapore to find new places to explore.

But is that really true? Is Singapore too small and boring for us Singaporeans who have been staying here all our lives?

If you think so, then you’re never more wrong. Here are 5 places in Singapore that you and your other half can go to have a blast of a time!

Homerun Baseball

Singapore is known for its love for sports like basketball, football, netball, IPPT, but baseball as a sport has never really caught on here. The closest we have are the cricket games being played in big fields around the heartlands.

Well, located in the sleepy west of Singapore is Homerun baseball where you can be try your hand at being the batter and pitcher in baseball.

Flight experience at Singapore Flyer

Singapore Flyer isn’t just about sitting on a giant wheel peacefully taking in the sights of Singapore from a bird’s eye view. You can also feel like a real Boeing 747 pilot by experiencing their flight simulator, which is by the way used for real pilots in their training simulation, strapping yourself into the seat, pilot the Boeing 747 when it takes off and land it safely at a predetermined airport.

And if that’s not realistic enough, you’ll have to check altitudes, airspeed and watch your heading throughout the flight. How many people dream of becoming pilots when they were young?

Urban Ski Singapore

For a tropical country, we did pretty well with ice-skating rinks and Snow City, but wait till you hear this: you can now ski down snow slopes in sunny Singapore whose highest mountain is Bukit Timah Hill.

Of course it’s not real snow, but skiing down a giant conveyor belt can be pretty fun too. Here’s a suggestion on how to spend your Christmas holidays, visit Snow City in the morning, have fun ice-skating in the afternoon before ending off the day with a skiing trip at Urban Ski Singapore.

Imagine having to take a boat out to take your dinner: doesn’t that just sound like you’re some millionaire tycoon? Of course, before you start letting your imagination run wild, you’re not going to some fancy cruise ship but a kelong instead, although the taste and freshness of the seafood is comparable to the fancy restaurants right here in Singapore.

Sentosa Fort Siloso Skywalk

You’ve all heard of the amazing views of Mount Faber, the breathtaking ornaments in Chinese Garden and just all around awesomeness of the Singapore Botanic Gardens, incidentally a UNESCO site, but here’s another place you can go for good view and an equally good workout.

If you’re a hiking junkie like some of the writers in the office, then you definitely have to visit this skywalk. Be rewarded for your hard work by taking in the awe-inspiring view of Singapore above the treetops.

Address: Siloso Rd, 099981 (Open to public 9am-7pm)
