“Aiya there’s nothing to do in Singapore” — ever heard this from the locals? The truth is, as long as we’re willing to dig a little, there’s plenty of exciting new things to do here in the little red dot! Even revisiting a place you haven’t been to in a while can be an adventure.
Since travel has been put on hold, there’s truly no better time to rediscover our home. This weekend, stray from your usual haunts and try something new instead! Here are some ideas to get you started:
Feeling stressed? The Fragment Room will take care of that. Described as “the most exciting anger therapy in the market”, it’s the perfect place to vent your frustrations. Choose your weapon — a baseball bat or crowbar — and smash away!

Here’s another unique way to destress. Instead of smashing glass like the hulk, here you’ll find inner peace just like Po in Kung Fu Panda. In floatation therapy, your body is free from gravity as you float in a pod filled with water infused with epsom salt. Benefits include stress relief, muscle recovery and increased mental clarity. Sounds pretty good to me!
Let your creativity run wild at Singapore’s first splatter paint studio. Here you aren’t just limited to a paint brush — make use of paint guns, cups and even your hands or feet! Take your painting off the canvas; the walls and floors are fair game too.
Spice up date night by swapping a regular meal for a fun night of mini golfing! With a unique 27-hole course, you’re guaranteed to be entertained for hours. Holey Moley has several quirky pop culture references from shows like Game of Thrones and The Simpsons infused in the decor, so be sure to get your camera ready!

5) Have an adventure at Changi without your passport
