Singapore is known as a ‘Garden City’. Internationally, we are lauded for having trees lining our roads and our clean streets. No, seriously – ask any foreign friend of yours and it’s likely they will say their first impression of our sunny little island is that it’s “clean and green”.
1. Kayak through a mangrove swamp at Khatib Bongsu
2. Or paddle your way from Pasir Ris Park to a fishing kelong
3. Rent a fishing boat with your khakis at Sungei Ulu Pandan
4. Abseil down Singapore's ONLY real rock wall at Dairy Farm
5. Learn how to climb a tree, because why not?
6. Zipline across Bedok Reservoir
Other obstacles here include The Sherwood Crossing, which consists of walking on small wooden octagonal planks up in the air, as well as the relatively easier Indian Bridge, which was a horizontal “ladder” among the trees. You’ll get a 20-minute briefing before going up among the trees to ensure all safety aspects are covered.
7. Explore the unprocessed beauty of Coney Island on 2 wheels
After all, there is no better way of soaking in the idyllic charm and tranquility than by cruising slowly on your bicycle through the undiscovered nooks and crannies of the island. To do so, you can either rent a bike from one of the rental shops at The Punggol Settlement, or bring your own bicycle.
8. Step out of your comfort zone and learn to work as a team with OBS
9. Discover an untouched diving site at Pulau Hantu
10. Pulau Ubin
If you are feeling a lil’ more gung-ho, explore the beautiful island further and challenge yourself to hiking at the island’s highest peak – Puaka Hill. Not only will you be rewarded with a good workout, you’ll also be treated to a breathtaking view. What’s more, the trail was only opened to the public recently, so you’ll win bragging rights if you conquer it before your friends. Score!
