Sure, brunch and coffee may be a great way to catch up with your girlfriends, but sometimes, we need a little something else to spice things up.
If you’re looking for new and fun things to do with your friends, you’ve come to the right place. Here, we list a whole host of fun activities you can do in Singapore that will keep your hang outs fresh and exciting.
Singapore is replete with green scenery, but there can be no better way to get in touch with nature than at one of its green hiking trails. Check out places such as the TreeTop Walk at MacRitchie Resevoir, Kranji Marshes and more for a wholesome activity that adds to your daily steps while spending some quality time with your friends. Just make sure to pack on a good pair of trekking shoes, sunscreen, and mosquito repellent, and you’re good to go!
Do your friends call you a walking encyclopedia of useless information? Put that knowledge to the test and take part in trivia nights for some good food, company, and a whole lot of drinks. Check out SG Tipsy Trivia, who holds regular trivia sessions at different venues every month, with at least half of their questions Singaporean-themed.
If laughter is the best medicine, then comedy nights have got it. For some notably funny stand-up comedy shows in Singapore, check out Comedy at Canvas, with Singapore’s most iconic drag queen comic, Kumar, or Comedy Masala, a series of open-mic sessions at Boat Quay which has seen famous international stand-up comedians gracing the stage, both happening on Tuesdays.
For something that will please your animal loving friends, head on over to a cat café for an afternoon of unwinding over coffee and cats. Check out places such as Meomi Cat Café over at Haji Lane or The Cat Café at Victoria Street for a quiet and cosy time with your friends and fellow felines.
What better way to broaden your vino vocabulary than with some practical learning via a wine tasting session? Plus, it’s a great way to socialise and spend quality time with your friends in a relaxed environment. Try Fine Wines, one of Singapore’s most established places to learn about wine, with frequent introductory classes focused on particular wine classes and regions.
If you’re looking for something a little different from the usual threatres, check out the alfresco movie spots in Singapore. Films at the Fort offers a menu of gourmet selections whipped up by The Providore Café, as you and your friends sit back and enjoy your movie on cushy inflatables under fairy lights, or mimic an old-school drive in with MovieMob, who hold roving cinema pop ups that usually come free.
If you’ve always wanted to pick up a cool skill, or make something of your own, check out the range of workshops hosted by Naiise, with activities that range from bouquet embroidery, miniature wheel pottery, and even DIY lipsticks. They also offer private workshop sessions if you’d like to hold one with your friends.
If you can’t squeeze in a quick escape overseas, why not check out some of Singapore’s nearby tiny islands for a short break from city life? Explore some of the islands just off the coast of Singapore by ferry, such as Coney Island, Pulau Ubin, or St John’s Island, for sandy beaches, unobstructed seaviews, local heritage, for an overall relaxing time with you and your friends.
Take your usual nail sessions to the next level with your girlfriends at Manicurious, which offers a special nail party package that not only includes nail services, but free flow drinks and one bottle of House Red or White Wine, for a party of six or more. What’s more, you get the whole salon to yourself, for up to four hours of uninterrupted fun.
