Can’t travel? It doesn’t matter. It’s time for us to explore our own backyard. Many of us lament that there isn’t much we can do in our home in terms of outdoor activities. There is no doubt that we cannot compare ourselves to those in the Australian outback and national parks in countries like the United States. But there is actually a great diversity of flora and fauna in our Garden City if we just wanted to give it a chance.
Did you know that Singapore has 350 parks and 4 nature reserves? And that our whole island is well connected by an interconnected network called the Park Connector Network (PCN)? There are many designated green spaces where we can indulge in our favorite outdoor activities. Whether it’s water sports, running, hiking, biking or just walking, find out where to go to enjoy the therapeutic benefits of nature on the National parks website. But before you go, check out the secure remote site for traffic at these locations.
Get away from the frantic crowds in shopping malls. With no signs that the COVID-19 situation is easing, there’s no better time to get out and explore the great outdoors of Singapore. Here’s a list of our favorite outdoor activities you can participate in, along with accompanying gear and accessories to get you working out safely and going out in style. And don’t forget the Solar cream!
Run like the wind
Since the breaker started in April last year, more and more people have embraced running and discovered the joys of beating the streets. Not only is running a good form of cardio exercise, weight training also builds bone density. Are your sport shoes worse for wear now?

Hiking and swimming in the forest
It took a pandemic and locals travel restrictions to explore our own backyards. In fact, many have been pleasantly surprised by the diversity of nature Singapore has to offer, in terms of flora and fauna, PCNs, and even off the beaten track trails worth exploring. Who knows, you might be the next to spot some wild boars and monkeys commonly seen on hikes in Singapore. All you need to get started are a pair of sturdy, hard-working hiking boots and rain-resistant gear.
If you like cycling
There is nothing quite like the wind blowing your face and vitamin D shining on you to rejuvenate and rejuvenate you. But a sore butt is a real pain in the ass, literally. Here’s a pro tip: Many cycling pros swear by the chamois cream. Apply on the buttocks before your outings. Try it for yourself!
