Special Interests

Although eating and shopping are named as Singaporean's favorite pastimes, there are other things to do in Singapore. It is now common for both Singaporeans and expatriates to be seen going for short diving trips, dirt biking, water-skiing, and rock-climbing, among other things, when given the chance. This active lifestyle is complemented by another growing Singaporean pastime, spectator sport. Singapore is the place to enjoy all thrills and spills with the local S-League, the English Premier League, and even world class events such as the Johnnie Walker Classic and Heineken Tennis Open.

Singapore has numerous private and country clubs with excellent sporting facilities. But the island is blessed with fine public facilities too, especially in various housing estates. Community centers have essential sporting facilities and are open to the public for usage.


Badminton is a popular sport in Southeast Asia. Furthermore, the region has produced some world champions for this sport. There are several badminton courts available in the community centers around Singapore. However, the Singapore Badminton Hall, located on Guilemard Road, are open daily from 8 a.m. to 11 p.m. Bookings are essential.


Singapore has over 20 bowling centers with each offering more than 20 lanes. Bowling is quite a popular game in Singapore. Most bowling centers open as early as 9 a.m. and close between 1-2 a.m. There are a few which operate 24 hours; these are usually found in the Marina South area. The cost per game ranges from S$3 to S$3.80. This is not inclusive of shoe rentals.


As cycling paths link many parts of the island, cycling has become a modest mode of transportation. However, most Singaporeans regard cycling as a recreational activity. During the weekends, one would be able to see locals cycling through the various parks available in Singapore. The more serious bikers may be seen cycling on the nearby islands, such as Pulau Ubin, as it offers the possibilities of mountain or dirt biking. Those who do not own bicycles need not fear as bicycles can be rented at a number of public parks, including those at East Coast Park, Sentosa, Pasir Ris, and Bishan.
