Heading off the beaten path in Singapore

Leave the Zoo, MBS, and the Flyer to the tourists and spend a day or two exploring some of Singapore’s amazing attractions that you probably didn’t even know existed!

Take your pick from these more obscure attractions listed below.

You can take a guided tour of the Tiger Beer Brewery and at the end of the tour you can even get to taste some of Singapore’s national beer!

A little known green park in the centre of Singapore is Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, which is a little way from the main tourist attractions in the city but gives you a great feel as to what “real” Singapore is like.

For the flight of your life, why not try out Flight Experience Singapore, which gives you the chance to handle the controls of the cockpit and take a realistic simulator flight with a trained professional!

For a change of pace, the Kranji War Memorial is a stark reminder of Singapore’s history as this cemetery is dedicated to the thousands of men who lost their lives in World War 2.

Now let’s get back up to speed with Ultimate Drive, which is the chance for you to drive one of two supercars around the city with an instructor. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity for most people!

One of the top museums in South East Asia, the Asian Civilisations Museum has been wowing visitors for many decades. It showcases a comprehensive history of all things from the region and often has special galleries open to the public.

If you fancy a cool down from Singapore’s hot weather and find that other water parks in the country are a little too expensive, the Jurong East Swimming Complex will be the best suggestion! A cheap and cheerful way to entertain the kids!

pinnacle

Although this is primarily a residential building, The Pinnacle @ Duxton also contains a public walkway at its ‘pinnacle’ where you can get great views all around the area, including of Chinatown, Mount Faber, and the west coast!

You could be forgiven for thinking you are in New York when you visit Parkview Square when considering the art deco architecture of this skyscraper. Pop in for a Singapore Sling at the grand lobby bar, but no photos are allowed inside the building.

reddot

A new attraction in Singapore, the Red Dot Design Museum showcases international design trends from around the world and is a real hip place to hang out!

Focusing on the Battle of Singapore during the World War 2, the small Reflections at Bukit Chandu gallery is a good educational attraction to learn of the local horrors suffered during the period.

thianhock

Built in a southern Chinese style, the Thian Hock Kheng Temple is the largest and most important Hokkien temple in Singapore. Now nearly 200 years old and still going strong!

Finally, Dairy Farm is a small area near the Singapore Quarry, which has some nice family edutainment on offer. You can walk there via one of Singapore’s many walking trails, which makes for a pleasant day.
