The best things in life are free – and we couldn't agree more, especially when we're looking to save some dough while still having fun. A lot has been said about how expensive it is to live or vacation in Singapore, but that doesn't mean you have to break the bank. From enjoying ticketless art exhibitions and offbeat attractions to exploring Singapore's great outdoors, here's how to live it up the city gratuitously.

Cross the oldest bridge in Singapore

The title of 'the oldest bridge in Singapore that exists in its original form' is none other than Cavenagh Bridge. The city's only suspension bridge links the Civic District on the northern bank to the Commercial District on the southern bank of the Singapore River. Built in 1869, it was originally named Edinburgh Bridge after the Duke of Edinburgh’s visit. But it later became Cavenagh when it was named after the last India-appointed Governor of the Straits Settlement, Sir Orfeur Cavenagh. The Cavenagh coat of arms and original signages still stand at each end of the bridge that's still used by pedestrians. Based on the vintage police notices that are still up, no vehicles – even cattle and horses – are allowed to cross to this date.

If you're lucky, you might also spot Singapore's otter family at the Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and rare migratory birds at Coney Island. Be sure to use the roadside paths and park connectors to navigate your way around. Oh, and don't forget to pack a bottle of water and stay hydrated.

Soak your feet at Sembawang Hot Spring Park

Things to do Mandai

The hot spring in Sembawang is a peculiar attraction in Singapore. First discovered back in 1909, the hot spring was popular with villagers who believed that the water had healing powers. Later on in 1922 when the site was acquired by soft drinks giant Fraser & Neave (F&N), the water was bottled and sold to the public. And during the Japanese Occupation, the place was converted into thermal onsen baths. It finally underwent a major facelift and reopened in January this year. The new Sembawang Hot Spring Park is where visitors can learn about the history and geology of the place, reminisce about the old kampung days by strolling through the fruit trees and edible plants, and of course soak their feet in hot waters at the pool or the wooden basins provided.

In this nine metre deep reservoir, expect to catch many non-natives of Singapore, such as the African Walking Catfish, Armoured Sucker Catfish, Peacock Bass and Tarpon. As it is a reservoir, do try to use artificial bait only – as to not contaminate the water quality.

With its vintage photographs and décor, the diner is a relic from the past that invites guests to step back through time. The blocks of walk-up apartments and semi-detached houses were built in the ’40s and previously used by non-commissioned British officers and soldiers.

Built in 1956, the collection of pastel coloured wooden huts is more living history than anything else, as rumours are constantly circulating that it’s due for demolition. If you go, be respectful – residents often complain of people taking photos without their permission.
