Rain, rain come today! Look to this list of things to do indoors the next time it rains or when the PSI levels soar high...
They say that when it rains, it pours. We can’t agree more – in this case, Singapore’s pouring with things to do during the showers. Yes, the usual rooftop bars or binge-watch list may come in handy but why not try something new for a change? Before you text your friends to cancel plans, send this list to your Whatsapp group chat for a solid contingency plan. Have kids? Our sister site has a massive list of things to do with the kids!
Pick up a new skill
You’ve had this on your to-do list forever but just never had the time. Now’s your chance to learn something new! From art jamming to cooking classes; creating your own gin to craft workshops, there’s something for everyone. Some workshops need to be booked in advance but no harm in trying your luck for an extra spot. *wink*
Let’s go shopping!
Spoken in true “White Chicks” fashion, Singapore is spilling with amazing malls for retail therapy. It is, after all, one of our favourite pastimes. From new kids on the block such as Jewel Changi Airport and Funan to a whole trail of malls along Orchard Road, you’ll be spoilt for choice.
Curl up with a kitty or two at a cat cafe
This one’s for all cat ladies and gentlemen. Have purr-fect day with the cutest cats in town. Order up some coffee and proceed to de-stress by watching some kitty antics. *Controls squealing*
Feel like a kid again
Unleash the child in you or tap into your competitive side with indoor golf at Holey Moley, escape rooms, the trampoline park, a friendly bowling tournament, laser tag or sweat it out at SuperPark. Stay tuned for our complete list!
Watch a movie at an alternative cinema
Watching a movie at a mainstream cinema is one thing but for a unique experience, book your tickets to an indie flick at one of Singapore’s alternative cinemas instead.
Who doesn’t love steamboat?
Another favourite pastime? Feasting! There’s nothing like a boiling pot of steamboat to warm up our souls during a cold and wet day. Hotpot, steamboat or mookata? We’ve rounded up the best steamboat restaurants for you.
TREAT. YO. SELF.
Real talk: we don’t need a reason to treat ourselves every now and then. Hell, we’re down for a spa sesh, rain or shine! It’s the perfect opportunity for a facial or to loosen those knots with a massage.
More than your average bar
Yes, your usual hangout is great but if you’re seeking a change of scene, themed bars where you can play golf, board games, arcade games and check out vinyl records are aplenty.
Vent it all out at a rage room
Next time you’re having a sh*tty day, vent all that frustrations at Singapore’s only rage room, The Fragment Room. Each session provides you with breakable items such as plates, cups and vases, electronics like TVs and radio sets. You can even bring something of your own – or your ex’s, perhaps? Suit up, gear up and get smashin’! Watch a throwback to our last visit.
Get acquainted with Singapore’s cafe culture
You might need to bring out your brollies for this. Even better if you’re driving! We don’t have to tell you about the cafe culture in Singapore. The astounding number of cafes in every neighbourhood speaks for itself!
Bruno Mars, who?
Doesn’t matter if you’re a bathroom singer, show-stopping diva or can’t hold a note to save your life – belt out your favourite hits and karaoke classics at a karaoke studio near you. Hit that track!
Join the tourists
Singapore is filled with plenty of attractions – we totally understand how hard it is to keep up. Visit lesser-known tourist hangs such as the Singapore Flyer, Trick Eye Museum, Madame Tussauds, Snow City Singapore, Science Centre Singapore and S.E.A. Aquarium for hours of fun.
Get your culture fix at a museum or art gallery
Spend hours at a cafe-in-a-boutique concept
If you’re looking for cafes that offer more than just brunch and coffee, they are multi concept hangouts where you can shop and get a manicure or shop and dine under one roof.
