After staying in the country for more than a year, you might be feeling the heat from the same sights and sounds. But just as how you’ve reimagined holidays into staycations, why not take a breather and go on a road trip around Singapore?
With multiple expressways and an increasing number of connecting roads, it’s easy to navigate Singapore with an automobile! With various ‘Instagram-worthy’ and fun-packed places, choose your road trip vehicle from the many car rental services in Singapore and rediscover amazing sites which were right under your nose.
1. Make a trip down to the Kranji farms
Over in the far north of Singapore, did you know that there is a long stretch of farms at Kranji (Neo Tiew Lane)? And many of these local farms are actually accessible to the public! You don’t need to travel out of the city to experience a laid-back life on the farm.
One of the most notable farms located in the area is Bollywood Veggies. As a sustainable organic farm with a large variety of vegetables and fruits, it’s a great education stop for the family. But only accessible by car, set aside some family time this weekend and take a 10-15 minutes’ drive in from the main road.
2. Take scenic photographs at Jurong Lake Gardens
Nestled in the west side of Singapore is one of the newest family-friendly parks, Jurong Lake Gardens. You can choose to park your car in the garden or at the many nearby HDB carparks.
As you explore the beautiful park, be sure to check out the Lalang field which offers breath-taking autumn-like scenes. Shoot some videos for family fun and when you review them after, you’ll find that the shots look as if they were taken outside of Singapore.
3. Revisit attractions at Mandai: Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari
Do you still have a couple of SingapoRediscover vouchers remaining? Then drive down to the Mandai area to revisit some of the country’s best attractions: the Singapore Zoo, the Night Safari and the River Safari. Especially for animal-loving families, you’re guaranteed to have a whale of time here!
Accessing these attractions by public transport can be a hassle because only a couple of buses go into this area. Also, if you’re spending an entire day out, it’s much more convenient for you to rent a car. You wouldn’t want to miss the last bus out of Mandai!
4. Bask in the flowers at Gardens By The Bay
Another ‘Instagram-worthy’ place to utilise your SingapoRediscover vouchers is Gardens By The Bay. The gorgeous flower domes create a dreamy effect – stepping in is a unique experience in itself. Different from the regular neighbourhood parks in Singapore, you’ll be spoilt with an array of vibrant yet calming flowers.
As a must-visit attraction located in the heart of the city, it’s better to take a drive down instead of fighting with the weekend crowd.
It’s time to reimagine road trips that can be done locally, here in Singapore! Opt for a car rental and take the weekend off, soaking in the local sights and sounds.
