There is simply nowhere else in Singapore that can provide you with the calm, peaceful experience of kayaking through the beautiful Mandai Mangroves. Enjoy this oasis of serenity amidst the bustling city as you paddle along the river through large aged mangroves and structures of abandoned kampongs.

The coastal tract is also home to many horseshoe crabs, and if you’re lucky, you might just be able to spot Brahminy Kites and White-bellied Sea Eagles circling the skies above you!

In the now modern city-state of Singapore, Pulau Ubin is one of the last surviving islands that can provide visitors with the experience of the country’s humble past. The island is filled with indigenous kampongs, sandy beaches, a unique wetland ecosystem, and some of the most breath-taking sceneries you’ll ever find in Singapore.

Just rent a bicycle at any of the stalls near the entrance and cycle down the well-marked biking trail for the ultimate island experience. Be sure to also take a trip up different peaks at various points along the trail for a beautiful overview of the island.

3) Adventure into the Marsiling WWII Tunnel



If you’re looking for an adventure, then the Marsiling WWII Tunnel is where you’d want to go. The tunnel was once used by the British Royal Air Force during WWII but was left abandoned after Singapore gained its independence in 1965.

Be prepared to get your hands dirty though, getting into the bunker will require you use a rope at the entrance after taking a small hike through the forest. The tunnel gets darker as you venture deeper in, so be sure to bring along a headlight or a strong torchlight with you.

If you’re looking for an authentic experience of Singapore’s humble beginnings, then Kampong Buangkok is a place you have to visit. Kampong Buangkok is widely considered by the locals as the last surviving “Kampong” (village) in Singapore.

The “Kampong” is home to no more than 30 families living in colorful houses mostly made of wood with zinc roofs. And in traditional “Kampong Spirit”, the locals living there would be more than happy to show you around the area and help you learn more about the early days of Singapore.
