Cool down with Hydrodash
Sentosa is home to some costly attractions such as the Adventure Cove and Universal Studios. However, it also has some cheaper options such as Hydrodash – Singapore’s first floating aqua park that is sure to please fans of Wipeout.
Located off Sentosa’s Palawan Beach, kids and kidults can play at the large inflatable playground and obstacle course. The water park is also split into four zones with different difficulty levels. If you still have some energy afterwards, why not head to the Trick Eye Museum to be amazed by optical illusions, or check out Madame Tussauds for some wax figure fangirling?
Let loose at Forest Adventures
Nestled in Bedok Reservoir, this treetop obstacle course features 44 obstacles and three exhilarating zip lines over waters. The thrilling zipline that runs across the reservoir is at a whopping 300m that is sure to make you feel as though you are flying.
For children aged five to nine years old, there is also a Kids Course engineered just for them. This is one definite way to achieving a high adrenaline weekend.
Learn about the arts at Gillman Barracks
A beautiful art cluster, Gillman Barracks is filled with galleries, bars, cafes and restaurants. Visitors will get to see impressive local and international art as well as participate in creative workshops within this cool enclave.

Get up close with nature at Sungei Buloh Wetlands Reserve
An ASEAN Heritage Park, this wetlands reserve is crucial for many migratory birds in Asia. You can feast your eyes on many bird species, crocodiles, and even otters if you pay enough attention to your surroundings, so keep your eyes peeled! Be prepared to slap on a generous amount of sunscreen and mosquito repellent patches to keep your skin protected.
Get off the beaten path at ORTO
Enjoy prawning and longkang fishing? How about hopping on trampolines, shooting paintball, playing soccer, or flexing your driving skills through drift carts? You can do all these and have a delicious mookata and even piping hot little bowls of thai boat noodles at ORTO. A family friendly establishment, it promises to be an all-in-one entertainment venue for everyone.
Watch indie films at alternative cinemas
You are not the only person tired of watching movies at the conventional movie theatres. Do things a bit differently by watching indie films at The Projector, which also serves craft beers, creative cocktails, cakes, craft coffees and more.
The Screening Room is also a hidden boutique film theatre that features an intimate screening room and a calendar of exciting films matched with food and cultural events. Expect timeless classics and thought-provoking independent or foreign films.
‘Jet off’ to surrounding islands

Cruise around the river
Spend some time this weekend floating down the Singapore River from Clarke Quay to Boat Quay. You will get to see bridges and various iconic landmarks such as Marina Bay Sands and the majestic Merlion. If you have already gone on the cruise in the day, try hopping on at night this time round. The experience will be vastly different, and much more cooling!
