Can’t decide what to do on Father's Day? We’ve got some fun and exciting Fathers Day activities that will make Pops proud
Scrambling for an exciting Father’s Day plan that will please Pops? Fret not! We get you; devising mind-blowing plans for that special man in your life can be quite tricky, but we’ve got you covered. From catching an EPL live match to taking photographs of buildings in Singapore, here are our 10 recommendations on what you can do with Dad on Father’s Day.
Catch a big game at a rowdy sports bar
The electrifying atmosphere in a sports bar, brought about by the unified cheers of fellow groupies (and rivals), makes watching a match outside your own home so much more exciting. What’s more, you won’t have to clean up after the game, or tick off everyone in the house and the neighbours with your roars and arguments. This Father’s Day, hit up these sports bars in Singapore with your dad and catch exciting football, rugby, and tennis matches while enjoying a few rounds of beers – we hope y’all support the same team!
Score some birdies on the green
Whether your dad’s a pro at golfing or simply just a golf enthusiast, this might be something he’ll love. Having more golf courses – per square-kilometre – than any other country in the world, Singapore is definitely a golfer’s paradise; and this Father’s Day, you should hop onto that fun fact. From the most exclusive to the most challenging, beginner or pro golfers in Singapore are sure to find a course that strikes their fancy with our list of golf courses in Singapore.
Scale rock walls like Spider-Man
If your dad loves to exercise, it’s about time to spice up his workout routine! Tell him to get off the treadmill and experience the thrill of rock climbing while building his upper-body strength and stamina. If he’s feeling adventurous (or want to pretend he’s a member of the SWAT team), he can jump right into the more advanced classes and learn how to abseil or lead climb. For beginners, you can always join a quick trial class to ease yourself into the sport. Get your dad strapped into a harness and get fit the fun way with these best rock climbing gyms in Singapore.
Get your trek on and hike through Singapore’s natural flora
Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, MacRitchie Reservoir and Pulau Ubin aren’t the only places to get in touch with nature! Get rugged with daddy dearest and explore parks and nature reserves that are hidden away from our rapidly developing cityscape. From forested hills to swampy wetlands, we’ve found 17 hiking trails in Singapore for you and your dad to get out of the urban gridlock and back into nature.
Gallop and giddy up at Singapore’s beautiful stables
Is your dad an adventure-seeking fella? Then surprise him with an eye-opening horse riding experience this time around. Believe it or not, you can hop on a magnificent stallion and ride away into the sunset in Singapore (or pretend you’re a jousting knight). Visit the city’s best stables that offer riding trails, and horse riding lessons for both competitive equestrians and beginners. Trot along!
Engage in an adrenaline-pumping paintball war
Take bonding with your dad to a whole new level. Rustle up your posse and get your protective masks ready for a wicked paintball game with School of Paintball. Let your dad unleash his inner Rambo at this surely unforgettable, adrenaline-pumping weekend activity for the entire family. The bruises will be stories worth retelling.
Take shots of architectural wonders in Singapore
If you and your daddy are photography aficionados, this might just be the perfect Father’s Day plan for the both of you. Go around Singapore with your dad and capture beautiful images of architectural wonders in Singapore. From residential condominiums to hotels, and even untraditional mosques, Singapore is filled with remarkable buildings that deserve to be photographed beautifully. Learn some photo tips from your pops – or perhaps, the other way around.
Feed those curious minds by hopping through museums
For all the kids who are stuck with the culture vulture daddies, this one’s for you. Take your dad on an exciting museum-hopping experience to see rare masterpieces, historical artefacts, revolutionary sculptures, thought-provoking paintings and cultural relics at various museums all around Singapore. The best part? Most of these museums offer free admission to locals and permanent residents.
Give Dad a makeover at Singapore’s top men’s grooming places
Gone are the days of the Neanderthal when a man’s basic grooming routine comprised the three S’s – shave, shower, and shi… you get the idea. These days, a real gentleman is turned out: no straggly beards and unkempt hairdos. Think it’s about time to give your dad a spiffy makeover to give him a new boost of confidence in life? Then bring him to one of Singapore’s top men’s grooming spots where he can get a gentlemen’s haircut, shave, mani/pedis, waxing treatments and many other pampering treatments.
Pamper your dad with these spa treatments for men
There’s nothing to be ashamed about pampering oneself in this day and age. Though typically seen as a female indulgence, we’ve started to see a spike in the number of dudes flocking to spas with professional services and treatments specially catered to men for some TLC. So time to convince your overly hardworking dad to slow down, get some me-time, and enjoy a relaxing massage. Wait no more and book an appointment for him pronto!
