The holidays are the perfect time to get together and spend time with the family, and in Singapore, there seems to be an endless array of activities. The city is well known for its world class shopping, amusement parks, and high-rises, but this time of year is special for an unexpected reason. Singapore is hot, but with the holidays comes the cool breezes that makes the climate mild. As temperatures drop, the outdoors become a lot more enjoyable. Make the most of not needing aircon and get outside with your family, especially if you have young kids! Here are just some of the activities that you can check out this holiday season:

East Coast Park

The East Coast Park is the largest park in Singapore, with over 185 hectares to explore. The park has a dedicated cycling and inline skating route so this is the perfect spot to rent bicycles with the whole family. Go on a leisurely ride and have your very own tour ‘de’ ECP. Think you can handle something a little more extreme? Get the adrenaline pumping at the Xtreme Skatepark and see if anyone of you can master a kickflip or ollie by the end of the day. Don’t forget to wear your helmets!

If you’re looking for something more relaxed, there’s still plenty of activities for you to do! Rent some poles and go fishing at the Bedok Jetty and try to get the catch of the day! Feeling peckish after all the activities? Have a picnic by the 15km stretch of beach or check out the dozens of eateries available in the park.

Wanting to get in the water this holiday season? The Punggol Waterway Park surrounds the Punggol Waterway, the longest man-made waterway in the country. There’s plenty to do the area that can fill up an entire day’s worth of activities. Looking for something different? Take a trip to the Punggol Marina, where you can rent a boat out and wakeboard, wakesurf, or even tag along in a rubber dinghy behind the boat along the selector channel! This is great family fun and exercise for everyone and will be sure to excited even the most unimpressed of teenagers.

Pasir Ris

Pasir Ris is a great place to visit if you want to get closer to nature. It has over six hectares of carefully preserved mangrove forest and several nature walks that allow you to get close to the flora and fauna of the area. If you’re feeling adventurous, bring out your family’s inner sharpshooters and and try your hands at playing darts at Forest 4 (1 Pasir Ris Close #01-313 E! Avenue Downtown East Singapore). With food, drinks, and assistants to help you learn the fundamentals of the game, you’re sure to have a fun filled afternoon.

Heritage Walks

One of the things that makes Singapore such a vibrant city is that racial and cultural diversity has been allowed to flourish as the city develops. Celebrate the holidays and the diverse cultural background of Singapore by taking the family on a trip down memory lane by exploring Singapore’s historical sites. Visit the Chinese Heritage Center and explore three restored shophouses of the early Chinese settlers, take in the sights, sounds, and aromas of the Little India Arcade and indulge in authentic Indian food, or immerse yourselves in Malay traditions at the Malay Heritage Center. Not only is this a great educational opportunity for the whole family, you’ll be able to pick up some great souvenirs and unique treasures too.

The best part of it all is that you don’t even have to travel very far! Singapore may be small, but there’s lots of great activities tucked away in every neighborhood! With many of these sites close to residential areas and easily accessible by MRT, you can probably even hit up several spots at once.
