The Best Outdoor Adventures in Singapore

Written by Fiona

Singapore, or the “Garden City” as it’s known thanks in part to its tree-lined roads, takes pride in being an exceptionally green and clean city. The city state is also safe, with crime rates being so low as to be negligible. So, it’s no wonder many people have Singapore on a must-visit list.

The island state is a commercial hub and with multinationals having a presence in its corporations, you may consider getting a job there. As a non-Singaporean, looking for work in Singapore and arranging your relocation will be easier if you work with a highly reputed agency for work in Singapore, as they have widespread experience and will help you secure your visa and other documents. Once in Singapore, whether for work on on holiday, you can try  a host of outdoor adventures.

Formula One adventure

Do you like an adrenaline rush? If you do, go racing in a Ferrari or Lamborghini on the city state’s Formula One circuit. Do several laps or a tour. Formula One is undoubtedly one of the most exciting, adventurous activities you can do in Singapore.

Book the activity at Marina Bay Sands Hotel or at the Singapore Flyer from 9 in the morning to 10 at night. It costs from $300 to $800.

Reverse bungee

For daredevils, the reverse bungee at Clarke Quay offers the same feel of gravitational force as a rocket launch. You will be taken up to a height of 60 at no less than 200 km/h. 

The Singapore Flyer

Atop the Singapore Flyer, the largest Ferris wheel in the world, at about 165m from the ground, you’ll enjoy an unobstructed panorama of the city. With other fantastic additions, such as romantic sky dining or high tea, supercar rides and more, you cannot afford to miss out on this memorable ride.

Forest obstacles

Go on a forest adventure with raised bridges, swinging trapezes, unstable logs and hanging nets. Then fly over a reservoir on a breath-taking zip-line.

You can enjoy this activity at the Bedok Reservoir Park, between 9:30am and 6:30pm, every day except Monday. It costs around $45 per adult.

River Safari Singapore

Climb aboard a vessel and travel through the only river-themed wildlife garden on the Asian continent.You’ll see many animals on your trip. To crown it all, you can spot the pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai at the Giant Panda Forest.

Riding through the jungle and seeing the various forms of wildlife on the River Safari Singapore is great for mental relaxation and costs $28 for adults and $18 for kids.
