As a destination that constantly evolves, reinvents, and reimagines itself, Singapore always has something new to offer visitors.
Head on to Singapore for a recharge, as the Lion City provides fresh possibilities to deepen passions or explore new ones.
Its new tourism brand is “Passion Made Possible” and it encapsulates the spirit that permeates Singapore, from its hard-working people and amazing experiences to the delicious food and stunning architecture.
Here are some of the new things in store for you in Singapore.
Reinforcing its title as “Garden City,” Singapore has added the Ethnobotany Garden to the Botanical Gardens. Split into four zones according to whether the plants are for construction, domestic, medicinal, and spiritual uses. Visitors can join hands-on activities offered at the garden.
It also now offers an exhilarating adventure for adrenaline-rush junkies among nets, giant Zorb balls, slides and mazes at Airzone. Located at the City Square Mall, this massive attraction encompasses six floors of exciting mazes, slides between levels, and a ball pit with 10,000 balls.
Sentosa’s newest attraction, AJ Hackett, provides another adrenaline-charged experience. On the shores of Siloso Beach, the colossal 50-meter structure offers risk-takers such experiences as an exciting dive atop its Bungy Tower, whooshing and swooping in on a high-speed giant swing, taking a death-defying walk on a 44-meter Vertical Walkway, and enjoying the feeling of walking on air in the glass booths at the open-air SkyBridge.
For the newly-renovated Maritime Experiential Museum in Resorts World Sentosa, it’s all about taking visitors on a voyage of epic proportions.
The experiential journey includes exhibits of intricate ship models, fun workshops on navigation, nautical charts and knot tying, and exciting simulations that will transport you along the Maritime Silk Route, get you in an adventure with pirates, and take you on a terrifying voyage into stormy seas.
