Wander Through New Possibilities
True to its “Garden City” name, Singapore has a new addition to Botanical Gardens, the Ethnobotany Garden. Living a nature lover’s dream, this diverse garden is split into four zones based on the plant’s purpose: domestic, spiritual, medicinal, and craft. This new attraction is not only special because of its beautiful and lush greenery but also the immerse, one-of-a-kind experiences that visitors can gain from the workshops, the hands-on activities, and the learning journeys that will help nurture a new-found appreciation and love for nature.
Other than the serene journey around a garden filled with the finest flora of Southeast Asia, you can also take an exhilarating adventure among giant Zorb balls, nets, slides and mazes with Airzone. Adrenaline-junkies will surely enjoy the world’s first suspended net playground. Located at the City Square Mall, this massive attraction spreads across six floors with slides between levels, exciting mazes, and a ball pit with more than 10,000 balls. You can have fun inside the giant Zorb balls, play dodgeball, and experience the thrill as a trapeze artist in this game and activity playground.
Another adrenaline-pumping experience awaits at the newest attraction of Sentosa, the AJ Hackett. Located at the shores of Siloso Beach, this 50-meter structure offers a thrilling playground where fearless risk-takers can take an invigorating dive from the top of Bungy Tower, swing with the high-speed gang swing, take a death-defying walk on the 44-meter Vertical Walkway, and have fun while walking on air in the glass booths at the open-air SkyBridge.
Bigger and Better Attractions
With the newly-renovated Maritime Experiential Museum located in Resorts World Sentosa, it is all about taking visitors on a journey of epic proportions that includes an exhibit of intricate ship models, nautical charts, knot tying, fun workshops on navigation, and an exciting simulation that will transport you along the Maritime Silk Route. Get on an adventure with pirates and take on a terrifying exhibition into the stormy seas.
After experiencing what it is like to be a sailor, step into another world and meet your favorite superheroes at the Madame Tussauds Singapore and its new Marvel 4D experience. Watch an action-packed movie in 4D which features some of the country’s top attractions as the background of the film with high impact special effects. Strike a pose next to the new additions to the wax figure family: Captain America and Iron Man. Channel the hero in you by trying out Iron Man’s armor too.
Passion-Powered Activities and Events
Celebrate Singapore’s biggest Lunar New Year Celebration with the Chingay Parade. Living up to its meaning “the art of costume and masquerade,” it is no surprise that the parade includes dancing dragons, spectacular floats, stilt walkers, and a lot more. Being the largest float parade and street performance in Asia, expectations can witness the colorful ethnic diversity of Singapore as people from different countries and races perform in their traditional costumes.
Another annual event that everyone is looking forward to is the Light Marina Bay. Known as Asia’s leading sustainable light art festival, visitors can expect 20 sustainable light art installations. Kids and kids at heart will also enjoy the Art-Zoo installation at The Float, a playground that resembles a zoological garden complete with huge inflatable animals.
This year is also an exciting year for the entertainment scene as the world’s premier electronic music festival, Ultra Singapore, returns in June to feature blockbuster artists and the freshest DJs. The biggest names in the industry such as Bruno Mars, Harry Styles, Katy Perry, Niall Horan, The Script, and many more, will be coming to the country.
