Singapore’s Hidden Treasures

July 25th, 2005   •   6 comments   

In any conversation about what to do in Singapore, you invariably end up with one of several scenarios. Either

  1. You get the usual litany of complaints that Singapore is so boring and that there is nothing much to do.
  2. You get a list of the usual suspects like shopping, dining, watching the movies, blading at East Coast etc…
  3. You get a straightforward, monotonal answer “No time lah..”

Well, unlike many Singaporeans, I think that there is much that you can enjoy here, if you look hard enough. There are many hidden nooks and crannies around our island which provide fodder for interesting personal expeditions. All you need to do is to go off the beaten track and uncover the cultural and natural gems of Singapore.

For example, do you know that there are more than 100 historic sites, complete with markers that tell the stories of days gone by? Or that we have one of the world’s best collection of South-east Asian artworks at the Singapore Art Museum? Also, one should try to visit the Sungei Buloh Nature Reserve, located way up north at Lim Chu Kang/ Kranji area, and catch the sunset there. And or course, the tree-top walks either at Macritchie Reservoir, or along Kent Ridge Park-Reflections at Bukit Chandu. Simply gorgeous.

While we are still a young nation which only hit 40 in recent months, we do have a rich cultural and natural heritage. By digging deeper and taking the road less travelled, you can hit the motherload. And you may be surprised at just how close to your doorstep such adventures can be.
