Top 5 Offbeat Things To See In Singapore

Singapore Off beat destinations

Singapore has always been a much-adored destination for Indians, especially honeymooners, due to its proximity to India. It is also recognized as one of the most revered shopping destinations in South East Asia. With so many websites selling Singapore honeymoon packages and adventure packages, the country has become a melting pot of travelers from across the world.

Offbeat destinations in Singapore

But Singapore can sometimes get boring due to its lack of adventure and mystery, and because everything is so well-organized. This is why we have come up with a list of offbeat destinations in Singapore that you can try on your next visit.Umbrella Trees Singapore

Umbrella Trees

Located on Hindoo road, this is a sight that not many people get to see around the world. Little India’s unusual attraction, Umbrella Trees are actual trees whose leaves have been replaced by colorful umbrellas. A local artist took up the responsibility of converting this dull-looking public park into one of the most colorful corners of Singapore city. The 5 umbrella tress in red, orange, yellow, blue, and purple, with a green grassy cushion underneath, creates a spot for visitors to escape the scorching sun or the torrential rain that Singapore experiences every year.

MacRitchie Treetop Walk

MacRitchie Treetop Walk

Located in MacRitchie is one of the many long hiking routes in Singapore. Unless you are scared of heights, we highly recommend trying the fascinating and adventurous TreeTop Walk. So, what exactly is it? The first of its kind in Singapore, this free-standing suspension bridge in the middle of the sanctuary is 250 meters long and at its high point is about 7 stories high. Getting to the top takes a little time but once you’re there the view is absolutely breathtaking. Since this is a nature trail, be prepared to hike at least 6 kilometers. We suggest you pick a day with pleasant, clear weather. This is a good spot for couples, especially if you plan to experience the Titanic moment.

Lazarus Island

Singapore is not exactly a beach destination and loses out to its more popular neighbors like Malaysia and Indonesia just for that. But Lazarus Beach might just be an answer to those looking to enjoy some beach fun in Singapore. A 15-minute boat ride from Marina South Pier takes you to this clean and serene beach that is not yet crowded with locals or tourists. Tucked away quietly between St John Island and Kusu Island, Lazarus Island is part of a group of 8 islets collectively known as Singapore’s Southern Islands. If you like flying kites, then get one before you hop on to the boat as Lazarus Island is a popular kite-flying destination.

Mystery Restaurant

How would like to dine in a restaurant that does not exist? Well technically it does, but no one knows where it is. Welcome to And so forth, an immersive theatre and dining experience that is so unique that bookings close weeks in advance. This is a secret pop-up restaurant whose location is revealed only to those who have made the booking. The location and menu are shared just a few hours before your mealtime. Interesting concept, right? Along with this, you will also get to see performances by local artists right next to your table.

Mangrove Kayaking

Did you know that Singapore has mangroves? Grab a kayak and head to the Mandai Mangroves if you’re looking for some quiet time away from the loud and busy streets of Singapore. These unique mangroves are a delight for nature lovers. The best way to enjoy them is to kayak through traditional villages with wooden huts called kampongs, see horseshoe crabs, and spot rare birds as you float on the Sungei Mandai Besar and Sungei Mandai Kechil rivers.
