Fun Drive at $128.00*
1. Fairways Drive (Off Eng Neo Ave)
This is one of the most picturesque drives in Singapore. As you turn off Eng Neo Ave, you realise the scenery changes almost immediately. Suddenly the road becomes narrower and bumpier. You see a lot of trees, before seeing the strangest signs.
This is definitely NOT a sign you normally see in Singapore!
And then you, see fields of green, with zero high rise buildings in sight. As your car bumps around a little more, the change of landscape rolls into a clearer picture… really quaint buildings, and then a horse! Yes, you see a horse, and maybe another three or four more if you are lucky.
The entire drive around Fairways Drive is not very long, just maybe about 20 min. You get to see really scenic scenery, and the drive will make you think you are somewhere overseas. At the end of the drive, there’s Rider’s Café and Marmalade Pantry where you can have nice coffee and tea to end the afternoon.
2. Macritchie Treetop Walk
One of the interesting places that you can explore with your family, can be found at the Macritchie Treetop Walk.
3. Garden by the bay
Located on 101 hectares of reclaimed land in central Singapore and adjacent to the marina reservoir is The Gardens by the Bay – truly transforming Singapore into the ultimate Garden City. Although it is relatively near the city, getting to the gardens ain’t that straight forward. This is especially after the MCE opened!
This drive is rather short, but the roads here are a breeze to drive in. Wide and spacious, and very clean and new looking. (If you check out the bitumen along the route, it looks really new and black!).
The kids will love the big open grounds, and the 2 conservatories to explore. You can find many different species of plants here, and even Carnivorous plants like the Pitcher Plant and Venus Fly Trap.
4. Punggol Park
The drive of course is via the Expressways. If you live in the North-Eastern part of Singapore, this would be familiar. But for the rest of us, driving to Punggol is always a treat. We get to zip past the CTE and TPE. Along the way, we see an array of sights from HDB estates to flat empty grounds.
My Waterway@Punggol features Singapore’s longest manmade waterway at 4.2 km, with five bridges. Created out of barren land, it connects Punggol Reservoir to Serangoon Reservoir. Besides the playground obstacles, the kids will find water obstacles as well. Kids and water-play always go together – and the kids will simply love this.
If you have the space in your car, this is a great place to bring your bicycles. The kids will not find this like the crowded pathways found at East Coast Park, but instead they will enjoy the space offered to them.
This of course, has to be included in the list. To drive across the Sentosa Gateway (although very slowly due to the speed cameras), always brings excitement to the kids. There are just so many things to do on this little island.
Enter the island early in the morning, and head for the Sesame Street breakfast with your favourite characters. Your kids will not just get to eat their favourite pancakes and waffles, but more interestingly, have personal photos with the cute adorable characters from Sesame Street.
Besides Universal Studios, you can drive the kids over to Mount Imbiah and let them experience the Sentosa Luge. Coming down the hill at quick speeds is totally fun and exhilarating, and the kids will love it.
