This drive-in concept is perfect for first dates, chill out sessions, and anytime you’re feeling bored. Don’t worry if you do not have a car, there’s more than enough space for you to roll out a picnic mat and lay there. Also, you get to vote on which movie that they are going to screen, so who knows?

Remember how the last time someone decided to do some art on Singapore’s train? Yup, it definitely did not go down well. Well, if you’re into graffiti art, you can actually head down to Somerset Scape Park to ‘vandalise’ in broad daylight and you won’t be taken away in handcuffs. At that place, you are allowed to unleash your inner artistic side and run wild with the spray paint.

Take a walk through the garden, soak up the smell of the flowers, and gaze at the beautiful nature that lies before your eyes. Now, add in some picnic fun and free concerts, and you’re looking at an entire day worth of fun. If anything, bring along a Frisbee to play after having your picnic.

That’s right, you no longer have to fly all the way to Taiwan to experience the amazing hot spring. Tucked away in a quiet place along Gambas Avenue, it’s the only natural hot spring in Singapore. It has free flow of hot spring water, so grab a huge bucket and soak your entire body in it. Some actually swear by its healing properties.

Honestly, I had no idea that Singapore had free markets. But it is true. It is run by a group of individuals who aims to build a community based on sharing resources. Literally everything there is free. And anyone with clothes that they would like to give away is also welcome to go down and set up a stall. Like their Facebook page in order to keep up with their events.

Home to a cluster of art galleries, NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore (CCA), non-profit visual art organisations, and great food choices tucked away, this place is an art lover’s paradise. The galleries feature a diverse range of international artists, and the entrance is, well, free. You can also go for their complimentary guided tours and walks around the galleries.

Go for hikes

Nature lovers will be delighted to know that hiking places in Singapore are usually free. Instead of joining the nearest gym, hike up the famous MacRitchie’s Tree Top Walk, or the meandering walk at Mount Faber Park’s Southern Ridges, and even the all-time Bukit Timah Hill. You’ll not only get the same kick from it, the scenery is just simply gorgeous.
