Things to do Bukit Timah

Pull a mini axe and send it whirling down the lane, hoping it hits a bullseye with a satisfying ‘thwunk’ – you score points based on where you bury the axe on the target board. This raging new sport not only makes great target practice (which may come in handy if there’s ever a zombie apocalypse) but it’s also a great way to blow off some steam with friends.

Reel in your catch of the night at ORTO

Things to do Yishun

Escape the hustle and bustle of the concrete jungle at this tranquil sanctuary for nature lovers. Doubling as a 24-hour prawning paradise, this scenic multi-recreational park invites you to embrace the thrill of the grill when you barbecue your fresh catch of prawns and yabbies. If you lack the patience for prawning, burn your energy with other activities like futsal and paintball as well.

The beautiful game doesn’t necessarily have to be played under the sun. Whether it’s a balmy or rainy night, take your game of footy indoors at a five-a-side football pitch (there’s six on-site). It may not be Camp Nou but it’s ace for small practices, friendly matches, and showing off the fancy footwork you've been working on for some time now. The venue also blasts energetic music to keep the ball rolling.

Hop on your bicycle and whizz through the new 60km Rower’s Bay. It’s part of the first phase of the Round Island Route, a continuous 150km park connector that circles the island. Connecting Yishun to Punggol, the boardwalk allows you to see the city in the dark with the breeze in your hair as you zoom by the edge of the Seletar Reservoir. There’s also a lookout pavilion, swales and a wetland area for you to soak in all of mother nature come dusk. If you’re making your way to Seletar Aerospace Park, there are shelters with charging points as well as vending machines selling bike equipment and a self- help repair station, just in case your wheels decide to act up.
