When it comes to retail, restaurants and recreation, Singapore is well-known for having a lot to offer. What might be a little less-known is that there is no dearth of things to do for adventurous and nature-loving folks, too! Here’s our quick list of some places to visit if you’re looking to be outdoorsy in Singapore.

Macritchie Treetop Walk Trailhead

The MacRitchie reservoir is the oldest reservoir in Singapore, and the walk around it is bordered with lush vegetation. While the entire walk might take too long, our sources suggest the Tree Top Walk, which is a 250 metre-long pathway that hangs suspended between the two highest points in MacRitchie. The views from here are gorgeous, and you can walk along it– at treetop height. 

Pulau Ubin

This island spot is good for a day trip; visit with some time to spare, cycle around and explore this island and its beautiful coastlines. Dig into some local fare before heading back to the mainland.

Seah Im Bunker

For the more adventurous of heart, the Seah Im Bunker at the foot of Mount Faber is an exciting and offbeat experience. Take a torch and a friend along to explore this bunker that may have been used as an air raid shelter during World War II. 

Sembawang Hot Spring

This is the only natural hot spring in Singapore. Discovered in the early 1900s, this is a beautiful spot! Over the years it has morphed into a tourist attraction of note, now updated with a cascading pool, cafe and a lovely garden.
