Experience the great outdoors
In Singapore, you can enjoy ‘’roughing it out’ in the great outdoors without compromising on too many material comforts by going glamping at East Coast Park. Glamping City offers luxury tents withbeds, pillows and quilts, USB charging ports, a chiller box and even a standing fan. The tents can fit between two and six people, with prices starting from S$170 per night (S$85 per person) for a two-person tent. Additional features like themed tent decor or outdoor picnics can be arranged at an additional charge .
Enjoy a meal, with a twist
The next time you dine out, how about trying something novel like having a meal while blindfolded? Suspending one sense when dining in Nox – Dine in the Dark (S$88 for three courses) could allow you to discover subtleties in the taste, smell and textures of your food that you’ve never noticed before. There will be plenty to talk about during and after the meal.
S$100-S$150 per person
Hold a private “concert”
You don’t have to travel to Japan or Korea to enjoy a VIP karaoke experience. Book a private KTV suite at an establishment like Ziggy’s, which comes with Korean-style props and costumes, a minibar and plush throws in case it gets cold. Some rooms even come with a mini stage so you can hold your very own “concert”. Prices start at S$80 an hour for a room – plan for at least a few hours of singing time – which means you’ll have some dollars left over to spend on drinks and snacks as you party .
Be a thespian for a night
Instead of sitting and watching a play or movie, why not be a part of a theatrical experience? Immersive theatre shows, like those at Andsoforth require the audience to interact with the cast, which could encourage even the more reserved individuals among your friends to break out of their shells. The productions also serve course dinners that are weaved into the story and setting as an integral element of the experience. Tickets cost $108 each, including dinner.
S$150-S$200 per person
One of the few late-night spas in Singapore, G.Spa is a luxury option where you and your friends can indulge in some post-work pampering. Inspired by 24-hour spas in Korea and China, this mega spa has plenty of communal facilities – both unisex and same sex – including sauna and steam rooms, indoor pools and a lounge to relax in pre- and post-treatment. A 60-minute massage starts at S$155.
Watch the sun set while out at sea
Did you know that you can charter a luxury yacht that takes you out to sea to enjoy a panoramic view of the sunset? Depending on the yacht you choose, entertainment options can range from kayaking and fishing to docking at a nearby island for a private BBQ. Yacht charter rates vary but expect to pay about S$150 to S$200 per person for this indulgence.
