North wilds drive
Taking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life can do wonders for our wellbeing. For an urban escape, embark on a scenic road trip around the northern parts of Singapore. Explore the wilder surroundings of the Punggol islands for a bit of respite, then make a stop at Punggol Waterway Park to enjoy the fresh air and captivating views. Psst: Coney Island is also in the vicinity if you’re in the mood for a trek or bike ride.
South plateau drive
Fancy being a tourist without leaving the country? Cruise along the East-West highway for iconic sights of the cityscape. Begin your adventure with renowned attractions like the Singapore Flyer and Gardens by the Bay. Then, venture into nature with scenic pitstop options like Mount Faber Park, Labrador Nature Reserve and Kent Ridge Park. End your road trip in Singapore with a jaunt through the intriguing world of Haw Par Villa!
Eastern seaboard drive
If you want a breezy and relaxing experience, drive along Bedok and East Coast for a carefree road trip. A stop at East Coast Park is a must on this drive! Pack a picnic and have your lunch on the beach while listening to the calming sound of the waves. Or, race your pals on a bike or rollerblades if a thrilling afternoon is what you’re after.
West world drive
Perhaps the only semblance of the countryside in Singapore, the west is full of open fields and thriving farms. This drive route takes you through the greenery of Jalan Bahar and Sungei Kadut. And don’t miss the chance to have a leisurely stroll through one of the many farms in Kranji – make a pitstop to explore horticulture, fisheries and more!
