ACTIVITIES YOU CAN DO IN PHASE 2

Singapore is finally in Phase 2, and this means that we are given a little more freedom to go out and about. While the pandemic situation across the globe doesn’t seem to be getting better anytime soon, Phase 2 in Singapore is definitely a step closer towards normalcy.

If you’ve been indoors for too long and are stumped on what you can or cannot do in Phase 2 in Singapore, here are 8 activities that we are allowed to partake in. Do remember to practise safe distancing and good hygiene habits while you have fun with your loved ones; we don’t want to find ourselves back in another Circuit Breaker.

APPRECIATE ART AT THE ARTSCIENCE MUSEUM 

Art enthusiasts who have been surviving on online virtual tours of museums and attractions during this period will be glad to know that museums will be open in Phase 2. One of these museums is the futuristic Artscience Museum near Marina Bay Sands Singapore. A plus point that comes along with the reopening of museums in Singapore is that crowds will be relatively smaller due to safe distancing measures.

READ A BOOK AT THE LIBRARY

If you’re a book nerd or someone who enjoys the peace and quiet of libraries, you must have been devasted to know that libraries were not accessible to the public for quite some time. Libraries in Singapore are finally reopening in Phase 2 so we can head there for some alone time and a good book.

SOAK UP THE SUN AT THE BEACH 

It’s time to get a good dosage of vitamin D to make up for all the time you spent stuck at home. Head over to one of Singapore’s many beaches to frolic in the sand & sea, get a good tan and just laze around. Who knew that we would one day miss the sun so much!

Some beaches you can visit in Singapore’s Phase 2 include Palawan Beach, Siloso Beach and East Coast Park. You can also have a mini getaway and go island hopping at some of the few islands that surround Singapore.

Sentosa Imbiah Trail

WORK YOUR LEGS AND DO A WALKING TRAIL 

Stretch those stiff legs and take a nice long walk at one of Singapore’s many walking trails such as Imbiah Trails, Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and Southern Ridges. It’s a wholesome activity to do in Phase 2 with your partner and friends after being apart for so long!

Picnic

HAVE A PICNIC AT THE PARK 

Everyone is all excited about dining out in Singapore and we can expect some pretty long queues for our favourite eateries. To skip the crowds, why not have a picnic at a park instead? Places like The Botanic Gardens, MacRitchie Reservoir and Chinese Garden are open again in Phase 2 in Singapore so you can prepare a sumptuous feast with your loved ones for a fun picnic session.

GO MURAL HOPPING 

If you don’t fancy the usual attractions such as Universal Studios Singapore and Singapore Zoo, an alternative activity you can try out is mural hopping. Singapore is home to a number of beautiful murals, with the more popular ones being by Yip Yew Chong. Embark on a wall crawl and discover hidden pieces of art that will let you rediscover Singapore from a different perspective in Phase 2.

Flower Dome

SURROUND YOURSELF WITH FLORA AND FAUNA AT THE FLOWER DOME IN GARDENS BY THE BAY 

Nature loves who are afraid of Singapore’s unforgiving heat can find solace in The Flower Dome at Gardens by the Bay Singapore. The famous air-conditioned glass greenhouse houses a myriad of gorgeous plants and flowers for you to admire and take photos with.
