Get your sketch on
Got a love for drawing? Urban Sketchers is a network of artists around the world who draw the cities they live in and travel to. This one’s not exactly a tour, but the Singapore branch hosts monthly sketch walks highlighting different vantage points of neighbourhoods. And it’s a great way to let loose your creative side and explore new estates at the same time. 2020 has made things a little different (there won’t be a show and tell sesh at the end), but you can still gather with fellow sketchers in small groups and post your pretty pieces online to admire each other’s artworks. Previous ‘hoods covered include Tiong Bahru, Marina Bay and Chinatown.

Row, row, row your boat
Hop on the boat and explore Singapore by water – but we’re not talking about those bumboat tours going up and down the Singapore River. Kayaking is a great way to see the hidden parts of Singapore.

You can also wander through the Northern Islands on a coastal expedition or embark on a wild and wet adventure through Pulau Ubin. Beginners are welcome, so grab your friends!
