Where to Chill Out in Singapore

Singapore is a dazzling city, full of bright lights, lavish shopping and hidden opportunities. As with many major metropolis, its citizens are used to a fast-paced lifestyle. If you have just relocated to this great country and need to relax, you need not worry. Singapore is full of amazing places in which you can chill out and recharge your body, soul and spirit.


Singaporeans love looking after their parks and other natural jewels. If you want to retreat from the city, you’re in luck. Coney Island Park is a 50-hectare national park that is perfect for bird watching. This lovely spot is home to more than 80 species of birds. If you are looking for a place to have a picnic and enjoy the view, Mount Faber Park will amaze you with it cable-car access and hilltop dining. At 105m, this park offers the perfect position to enjoy the view over Singapore and enjoy a relaxing day out.

If you prefer to stay closer to the city centre, you can’t miss the chance to explore Gardens by the Bay. This manmade wonder has quickly become a landmark of Singapore with its decadent light shows and daily water displays. It’s just a 5-minute walk from the Marina Bay and covers 101 hectares. Delight your senses in the Flower Dome, the largest glasshouse in the world, where you can appreciate plants from all over the world.


There is no better place to unwind than the beach. Singapore has beautiful beaches where you can truly take some time breathe and gather your thoughts. Tanjong Beach, Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach, all located on Sentosa Island, and Pulau Ubin are among some of the best places to lay on the sand and watch the calming waves. If you stay long enough, seeing the sunset offers the perfect end to your day.


Those who prefer to stay within the city can spend their time immersing themselves in the rich culture of Singapore. You can stop by the National Gallery Singapore, which is located in the Civic District. Visitors can enjoy a large exhibition of modern Southeast Asian art in what used to be the Supreme Court building. If you are interested in spiritual sites, the Yueh Hai Ching Temple won’t disappoint. Located in the bustling Raffles Place in the SG CBD, this UNESCO heritage-listed site, which was built by sailors and traders in the 19th century, may be surrounded by traffic and crowds, but offers a certain calm in the middle of the city.

Those who prefer to get involved will love the Arteastiq Mandarin Gallery and teahouse, in which you can express your artistic flair. The gallery provides the materials so you can create your very own masterpiece, while the boutique teahouse is a ritual of enjoyment. If you marvel at the universe, the Observatory Deck at the Science Centre has what you need and more. You can use the telescopes during their weekly sessions to gaze at the stars.

If you need some help with your self-nurturing, book a luxurious appointment at one of the many spas in Singapore for some TLC pampering.
