Outdoor Activities in Singapore

There is so much more to do than just shopping and nightlife in Singapore. In fact there is a lot of outdoor activities in Singapore with many adventures to be had!

Outdoor Activities in Singapore

Here are some ideas for you to plan your outdoor adventure when visiting this tiny country that packs a punch.

1. Rock Climbing

Who knew? Singapore has some great rock climbing at the old Bukit Timah Quarries. There are almost 50 routes to challenge a climber from easy 5.7's to difficult 5.12 b routes.

Rock climbing is fairly new to Singapore, but it is catching on quickly.

2. Wake boarding

Not only is it popular to head out to a reservoir and hire a boat, there is also a Cable Ski Park. This looks like the best way to learn tricks on a board as you are pulled around a lagoon on a cable.

It is cheaper than renting a boat and up to eight riders can be on the cable at one time, giving you lots of water time.

3. Paragliding

A new addition to the adventure travel world of Singapore, Paragliding just might take off as a popular adrenaline activity.

Dave did this in Peru and New Zealand. We had never thought of it over a city, but Singapore just may be the place for us to give it a try!

4. Ziplining

Mega zip adventure park has outdoor activities to keep the adrenaline pumping for an entire day. Between its zipline over the jungle canopy, high rope obstacle course, mini bungee jump and rock climbing wall this may be family fun, but I want to go too!

I haven't been a fan of bungee jumps in the past, but I think that I would be able to actually try the 50 foot jump at Mega Zip.  Sign me up, we're going to Singapore.

5. Mount Faber Park

We actually made it to this one.  Our friend Gilbert took us out to Mount Faber for spectacular views of the city.

This 9-km wide park is lush and filled with plant life. Trails cut through the forest and it has the highest pedestrian bridge in Singapore.

6. Zorbing

It isn't only in New Zealand any more.

This inflatable ball that rolls down a grassy hill has arrived in Singapore and we would love to give it a try. ZOBVB Singapore has more information and fun activities.

7. HSBC Tree Top Walk

A rainforest wouldn't be complete without a canopy walk and Singapore is no exception. Located in the MacRitchie Reservoir this suspension bridge is only 250 metres long, but the hike through the rainforest is nearly 10 km.

You may even catch sight of some monkeys and exotic birds.

8. Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

At 7500 acres in area, the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve is Singapore's oldest rainforest.

Home to over 500 species of animals and even more plants, it is a quiet refuge from the city.  It even keeps noise and visitors to a minimum by having a cap on the amount of people allowed to hike in a group.

Most of the trails are easy, but to hike anywhere in a rainforest is always fun.

9. Beach Life

We didn't even know that Singapore had a beach! But East Coast Park has 7.5 km of sand and sun.  Not only can you relax on the beach and catch some rays, there are water sports, bicycle trails and running tracks.
