The humidity of Singapore is one downside to living in such a fantastic city. Now that the summer months are well and truly here, it can seem like escaping from the perpetual heat is akin to mission impossible. So here are some of our ideas for cooling off in the city.
This is an especially good idea if you are travelling with children. They have built four new rides since October 2017 and this water park is a great day out for little and big kids alike. From the Kraken (a four lane mat slide) to the Torpedo, where you are ejected from a capsule eighteen meters in the air into a freefall, there is plenty to do for those who prefer to cool off in the water. They also have more gentle slides like the Royal Flush, Slide Up and Ular-Iah, which allows families to ride together. They even have rest zones where you can lie back and suntan. For little kids, there is a toddler’s play zone as well as a pool for babies. They have plenty of facilities for young families, such as nursing rooms, kid’s shower cubicles, baby carriers and even baby floats. A great choice for the whole family!
Whilst this sport may usually be reserved for winter months, it is also a great chance to cool off whilst enjoying a new sport. Thanks to it’s indoor location, you can also enjoy the air-conditioning! JCube Shopping Mall has a rink which also offers classes in figure skating, ice hockey, curling and speed skating.
Increasingly popular, and with plenty of options all over Singapore, these are a great indoor activity that means you escape the heat of the street. If physical exercise is not your bag, then some mental exercise might just do the trick instead. This is a great activity if you have a group of friends willing to take part, and it can be a lot of fun. Many escape rooms have different themes, such as solving crime or escaping from zombies. You can even try to escape from Aokigahara, Japan’s notorious suicide forest, or Alcatraz. Lost SG, Escape Artist, Lockdown, Escape Hunt and Trapped SG are some of the best.
Why not visit the tallest indoor rock-climbing space in Singapore? Located in Kallang Wave mall, indoor climbing has never been so fun. There are plenty of different lanes, with corresponding levels of difficulty and there are safety briefings for beginners. The climbing walls are open-air, so bear in mind that other shoppers will be able to see you!
Visit a dog cafe
Singapore has plenty of animal cafes, so why not spend some time indoors with a furry friend, enjoying a sweet treat and an iced coffee? Many of these cafes are also pet-friendly, which allows you to bring your own pet if you so wish. They also often offer menus for the animals as well as humans, so everyone is a winner. We Are The Furballs is one such place, as well as Ofur Paw Cafe, which showcases guest dogs every week. What better way to relax indoors with a furry one?
