Go off the beaten track and discover a whole new dimension to Singapore with this three-day itinerary.
Move away from the bustling main areas of Singapore and wander into the heartlands instead. Start your day at Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park, located at the heartlands of central Singapore. Go for a jog or rent a bicycle to make your way around the 62-hectare park. With grassy banks on both sides of the park’s meandering 3km river, there are plenty of spaces for a picnic too.
Hop on the MRT to go to housing estate Toa Payoh, which is just two stops away. Besides joining the locals at the area’s popular hawker centres at lunchtime, do check out the precinct’s green spots such as the Toa Payoh Sensory Park and the Toa Payoh Town Park. As for food, try Hokkien mee (stir fried prawn noodles) at Kim Keat Hokkien Mee – located in Lorong 4 Toa Payoh.
On the other hand, if you happen to be in the city, don’t assume you’ve seen it all. Try hitting up areas like Emerald Hill on Orchard Road; this little enclave may be known for its vibrant nightlife scene, but take a closer look at the buildings and marvel at the beautiful architecture as well.
