Singapore may be small but there is an abundance of activities to enjoy within this little red dot.
From busy town areas to peaceful heartlands, every corner of Singapore has something fun to discover – you just have to look at the right places.
If you need some inspiration for your weekend plans, here are five activities that are worth trying with your friends:
Go back to the good old 1950s and 60s at Hi-Roller, Singapore’s largest indoor skating rink.
With its loud music and colourful disco lights, this place has become a trendy place for youths to visit – you should know what I mean if you’re on TikTok.
Worried you can’t balance? Fret not, other than the usual roller blades, they also offer quad skates that have four wheels for better stability.
Weekends and public holidays are their peak periods so do book in advance if you wish to visit them during this time. Due to COVID-19, they now have a limited capacity of 50 pax.
Visit their website for more information.
Unleash your inner artist and let your creative juices flow at Taoz Ceramics. Located in Orchard Gateway and JCube, they offer wheel throwing trial classes and ceramic classes from the beginner stage to the advanced stage.
If this is your first time trying out pottery, you may want to register for the trial class first before deciding whether or not to take actual classes.
The wheel throwing trial class costs $40 per pax for 30 minutes. Fees are inclusive of one piece of clay, tools, firing and glazing. You can also decorate your piece after the first round of firing if you wish.
K Bowling Club is Singapore’s first cosmic bowling alley. Located in 313 Somerset, this all-in-one hangout with a bar, pool tables, arcade and more is definitely down everyone’s alley.
The bowling alleys and seats are lit with bright neon lights. While waiting for your turn to bowl, you can chill in those egg-shaped seats and enjoy your favorite music videos playing on the TV screens.
Other than bowling, you can also play darts for $2 per game. If even that is not enough to entertain you, there are karaoke booths where you can sing your heart out too.
Apart from the usual canvases and art materials, LionHeart Studio provides free flow hot drinks (coffee or tea) and pastries for you to snack on as you paint.
Two hour sessions cost $45 per pax, but you can also book a LionGroup ($175 for 5 sessions) or LionKings ($300 for 10 sessions) package.
LionHeart Studio also offers portfolio preparation services, graphic design and digital art classes – perfect for aspiring artists.
Suitable for all ages, Lockdown Escape is a first-person adventure game simulating online room escape games.
The game requires players to be observant and use their critical thinking skills to solve riddles and challenges in order to escape, all within a time frame of an hour.
Lockdown offers four themed escape rooms to provide a different playing experience each time.
The escape rooms cost $22 per pax on weekdays and $25 per pax on weekends and public holidays. You can check them out here, and do take note of the number of players allowed in each room.
