A renowned island nation located in Southeast Asia, Singapore has become one of the most sought-after tourist destinations over the years. It gives tourists the chance to explore diverse cultures, architectural wonders, and majestic green spaces that are all packed into one tiny country. While getting around in this part of Asia during your holiday, you’ll also be impressed by its highly efficient public transport system. This is also a great destination for those who wish to indulge in some fabulous shopping experiences and other outdoor activities.
One of these activities is skydiving, which you can try while enjoying your Singapore holiday. If this sounds scary owing to your fear of heights, you don’t need to worry at all! At the indoor skydiving facility called ‘iFly Singapore’ located on Sentosa Island, you can experience the thrills of this activity while being in a safe indoor environment. This facility has a five-storeyed indoor wind tunnel, which simulates the experience of a 10,000-feet freefall. As you feel the rush of winds created in this indoor wind tunnel, you’ll have some of the most memorable moments of this fantastic island country.
While you’re on Sentosa Island, you can also go snorkelling over a charming coral reef with many different species of fish moving around in the crystal-clear waters of the Adventure River. During your journey down this river, you’ll also get the chance to pass through 14 different zones. If you’re on the lookout for some high-octane action, try the car rides on the Marina Bay Street Circuit’s thrilling laps. You can fasten your seat belts, put on your helmets, wear the safety gear, and you’re ready for the adventure. You can also try riding the waves at Wavehouse Sentosa, a surfing facility located on Sentosa Island.
Let your inner Tarzan come alive at the Bedok Reservoir Park, which has several obstacles in the form of elevated bridges, hanging nets, trapezes, and logs. You can also get a little more adventurous and try zip-lining over a reservoir while at this park. While exploring Clarke Quay, you can indulge in some reverse bungee jumping with a group. You can feel the adrenaline rush as you descend with great force and then rise to a height of 60 metres. The reverse bungee jumping adventure is conducted every day at 2 pm. Night Safari is yet another experience you must try during your time spent in Singapore as it allows you to witness different species of nocturnal animals in their natural environs.
Take a ride in the Singapore Flyer, which is among the tallest Ferris wheels in the world. It is located in the historical and downtown centre called Downtown Core. Opened in 2008, this Ferris wheel has 28 air-conditioned capsules, which allow you to savour some awe-inspiring views of the island. A trip to River Safari would give you the chance to watch the endangered species of wild animals moving around in their ecosystems. Among the major attractions of this park is a pair of female and male giant pandas that have been housed in a climate-controlled enclosure.
