Hitch a ride with the Trishaw Uncle
Trishaws are a form of transportation in the days of yore and as children growing up in the 80s, we recall hopping on one of these four-wheelers on weekly commutes from the local markets with our grandparents. While rides used to cost a mere 50 cents back in the day, using the trishaw to get around in our busy city now is almost impossible – which is why it’s now only used to ferry tourists around the Bugis area. Embark on a journey to experience the sights and sounds of the oldest streets in the vicinity with the Trishaw Uncle.
Pay a visit to the animals at the Night Safari
Anything that’s a world’s first is most definitely worth a visit and in this case here, we’re talking about the Night Safari! The award-winning safari park for nocturnal animals is home to over 2,500 animals and is a great spot to bring the entire family to. Experience the guided tram ride that takes you across seven geographical zones of the world and see them in their natural habitats. If you’re lucky, you might just be able to catch some free-ranging animals at arm’s length away! There are also walking trails, shows and special performances throughout the night so be sure not to miss out anything when you’re there!
Try your luck at the Marina Bay Sands Casino
If you’re game to try your hand at blackjack, craps or roulette, why not go on a few games at the casino at Marina Bay Sands? It’s open 24 hours and of course, admission is only for 21 years and above (of course). A word of caution: you can spend as much time as you want here, but don’t get carried away!
