Half a year has whizzed by, school has finally ended for a month long semester break! To all the students, do take this time off to unwind before another intense school term starts. You have worked hard and this is time to reward yourself. Here are some of my top picks of interests that may excite you this holiday in this (pretty boring) red dot.
1) Adventure Cove
For people who love water-related activities, this water theme park is definitely one for you. With slides like the Pipeline Plunge and Spiral Washout will get you exhilarated, while there are Rainbow Reef and Adventure River to keep you in awe. Most attractions come with height restrictions, so do find out more to avoid disappointment. Price: $36 for adults and $26 for children and senior citizens
2) HSBC Skywalk
This Tree Top Walk is for the outdoor-loving and adventurous people. Approximately 4.5 km (1.5 – 2 hour walk) from the MacRitchie Reservoir Park and 2.5 km (45 mins – 1 hr walk) from the carpark at Venus Drive, the HSBC Skywalk is a suspended bridge (entirely safe) that overlooks the forest canopy. The place is breathtakingly beautiful.
3) Café Hopping
Now that you have too much time in your hand, take the entire day to do café-hopping! Visit quaint, “indie” clusters of districts to explore. It may be a little costly to patronize every café, but it will be a good time if you and your friends are the curious type. These café clusters usually have other interesting places to check out as well. Some clusters of cafes include: Tiong Bahru, Everton Park, Tanjong Pagar and Katong.
4) Xcape Room
5) Trampoline Park
