Borders around the globe might have reopened, but that doesn’t mean that there’s nothing new to experience in Singapore. This little island is still full of interesting activities that cater to people of all age groups and preferences. Whether you’re a foodie, a creator, or simply one who prefers being in the great outdoors, there’s something for you!
A short boat ride away from mainland Singapore lies a tiny island where time seems to have stood still – the total opposite of what the rest of this ultra-modern country is like. Pulau Ubin is one of the last vestiges of kampung, or even kelong life, and till today, some of these homes still have no tap water or electricity! Once you arrive on this rustic and laid-back island, go on an unforgettable cycling adventure, and get in touch with nature at its finest; pedal through roads and tracks framed by swaying trees, and spend the day discovering secluded beaches, flourishing mangrove trails, and thriving rubber plantations.
The pick-up location for this activity is at 30 Changi Ferry Road, Singapore 499675.

If this sounds like the perfect weekend activity for you, gather your like-minded friends, make a reservation, and look forward to hours of boozy fun!

A huge empty wall, and rows and rows of spray paint cans – that’s what you’ll find when you walk into Heaven Spot, a place where you can unleash your creativity and express exactly how you feel. Suit up in protective gear and start spraying whatever you’d like on the walls – here, you’re encouraged to go wild with your creations, so don’t hold back. If you’ve always wondered what it’s like to be Banksy, then this is the place to be!
Heaven Spot is located at 3 Lorong Bakar Batu, #03-01, Singapore 348741.
There’s nothing quite like a private dining experience. If you’ve never been to one before, it almost feels like dining at a friend’s house – with your friend being a knowledgeable chef. Instead of just savouring food, you’ll first go on a short walk to learn about edible plants, before returning to your host’s apartment to tuck into a sumptuous seafood grazing platter – some of the highlights here include locally-caught snappers, Sri Lankan crabs, tiger prawns and squid. Dig in to this feast while you learn all about the food on the table: history, stories, preparation methods, and more!
Primateve is located at 30 Holland Close, Singapore 271030.
