Singapore is clean and green and maybe a little too organised for its own good. But it also has incredible views that will take your breath away – here are fun-filled ways to enjoy those sights and sounds. 

 

You have been dying for a change of scenery. The same old routine back home does not cut it anymore. Whatever the case is, you are glad to travel once again. Maybe even to an entirely different continent for the first time in years. Why not then travel in style and soak up killer views of Singapore while you’re at it? Trust us. A dramatic landscape is not only fabulous for the gram but will nourish your soul as nothing else can. Here are eight activities that will give you the most stunning sights of Singapore:

Tiny in size but big on biodiversity, Pulau Ketam (translated into “Crab Island” from Malay) is a narrow strip of land across a channel from Pulau Ubin. This little-known ecological jewel is a perfect spot to immerse yourself in nature and lap up wildlife views. Here, paddle around lush mangroves on an open sea kayaking journey and explore Singapore’s rustic side, enjoying a bit of real jungle instead of the concrete jungle for once.

That’s the sort of experience you’ll get at AJ Hackett, the perfect place for daredevils to get their fill of thrills. Bungy jumping aside, add the Giant Swing to your wish list, a whirlwind of a ride that will get your pulse racing, and step on the Skybridge, an exposed bridge with scenic views of Siloso Beach.

  • Out-of-city Experience

Singapore is more concrete jungle than actual jungle, even though the city is technically on an island. Still, there is plenty of fun in the sun and great views to boot if you are looking for it. Get your splash on and embrace the tropical climate with water activities at Ola Beach Club, a Hawaiian-themed bar and water sports centre where you can try standup paddleboarding, kayaking, and riding a donut behind a speedboat. Chill by the shoreline right after, and your de-stress sesh is complete.

Pamper yourself like how a real king or queen would by setting sail on the Kingdom – a luxurious 54-foot catamaran with three decks of interior and exterior space. Live the high life on this beast of a vessel, elegantly furnished with an open-concept cockpit and salon, equipped with a grill, bar, and entertainment system that will keep you amused as you sail the scenic Southern Islands of St. John’s Island and Lazarus Island.

The Singapore Cable Car is a little retro and a childhood favourite of many Singaporeans. But there is a good reason for its longevity. The fact that this attraction has reinvented itself over the years has made it a mainstay. Today, you will not only be able to experience superb views from the top of Mount Faber Peak to Sentosa, but you can also savour an exquisite four-course dinner in your very own private cabin. Is there any better way to get to know Singapore’s beautiful side? We think not.

One sure way to get a taste of Singapore’s more scenic side is to tour the world’s highest microbrewery. Your stop? LeVel 33, a rooftop bar that is perched, you guessed it, 33 stories above the ground, offering unobstructed views of the city skyline, with tasty house-brewed beers to chug down. Join the brewmaster as he takes you on a tour of state-of-the-art microbrewery systems. And afterward, head to a terrace table for a tasting beer paddle of tapped beers and delicious bar bites.
