10 Unusual Things to Do in Singapore - Top 10 Unique Activities to Enjoy in Singapore

Discovering Singapore's lesser-known activity hubs can be among the most rewarding experiences in the Lion City. Here are ten unusual things to do when holidaying in the island nation.

1

Enjoy a Selfie Coffee

Fancy sipping on a cup of coffee with one's face etched in the froth? Head to the Selfie Coffee Café in Singapore to sip on this unique beverage which features one's likeness. Visitors must first take a selfie at the cafe using a number of props so the cafe has the facial features of the customers. Located down Haji Lane, this hipster cafe is the talk of the town for this reason alone.

2

Cruise on a Donut

Often regarded as the best way to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea during sunset, the doughnut-shaped boats offer travellers the chance to engage in a truly unique activity. This river cruise which is brief but memorable allows visitors to sip wine and experience the views of the quays while those who sign up for a daytime dounut tour can dig into a brunch menu instead.

3

Sign Up for a Sidecar City Tour

There's nothing like discovering the heritage sites around Singapore in a vintage Vespa sidecar on a one of a kind city tour. Driving through the suburbs and backstreets in the city, the sidecar tours explore lesser-known parts of the city most tourists fail to visit.

4

Tour the Asian Civilisation Museum

Home to a whopping 1300 artefacts, the Asian Civilisation Museum is also an off the beaten track attraction visitors can experience when holidaying in Singapore. Sign up for a free guided tour to learn fascinating facts regarding Asian cultures.

5

Discover the World's Biggest Greenhouses

Occupying pride of place in Gardens by the Bay, the greenhouses are an often-overlooked highlight in Singapore. The Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome are just as impressive so be prepared to spend a few hours at this futuristic garden space.

6

Wine and Dine at a Hawker Centre

Forgo Singapore's fine dining establishments for a truly authentic dining experience at a local Hawker Centre. Often described as the locations in which soul food is served in Singapore, the Hawker Centre is full of street food kiosks serving everything from Satays to chilli crab. Even if one is not a food lover, the sheer variety of meals and dishes available make the trip a worth it. Those based at Grand Park City Hall or any similar City Hall hotel in Singapore can find a hawker centre near their accommodation hub.

7

Go on a Bumboat Cruise

Regarded as the best way to cruise to Pulau Ubin, the half-day tour to the country's last remaining village is a must for those in search of unusual adventures in Singapore. Hop on board a bumboat from the Changi Point Ferry Terminal and take the 10 minute trip to the kampong which is also home to a wildlife sanctuary and birding paradise.

8

Learn How to Cook Local Delights

Singapore's authentic cuisine is not only diverse but also worth learning about in a culinary course or demonstration. Cooking classes are a great way to learn a transferable skill while in the country and prepare delectable dishes at the same time.

9

Hike across the Treetops

Head to the Southern Ridges Trail and enjoy the hiking adventure of a lifetime. The 10km trail not only offers visitors spectacular views of the gardens and parks in Singapore while walking on these vaulted bridges.

10

Camp Out at the Aquarium

Those who visit the S.E.A Aquarium can sign up for the Ocean Dreams tour package where one can camp out in the Open Ocean Gallery where countless marine species are visible.
