In this pandemic, hotel staycation proposals have become the norm. But if you’re a hopeless romantic that refuses to submit to COVID-19’s travel limitations, this is for you. Set sail on the Royal Albatross where you’ll be able to ride into the sunset with your partner, enjoy an intimate dinner, and watch the city lights as darkness falls.

Besides, when you’re under a canopy of sails with a view of the cityscape, it’s very difficult to say no.

Kayak fishing

The start of 2020’s Circuit Breaker brought attention to Animal Crossing, a game where players are tasked to build a village by collecting building materials and doing side quests like fishing. The days of spending hours on the game may be long gone, but true Animal Crossing fans can relive their farming days through this kayak fishing experience.

You’ll get to kayak across the sea and hunt for fishes such as groupers and snappers, pretty dapper if you ask me—if you know, you know.

It’s easy to help a friend track down their crush’s socials when you’re determined enough—even if the only information you possess is their crush’s first name. For those who’ve been applauded for their CSI stalking skills, perhaps you’ll be able to channel your inner Sherlock into the Chinatown Murders Game Tour.

Played in a team of two to five participants, hone your detective skills by solving a Cluedo-style puzzle to uncover the mystery behind a serial killer on the loose.

Singapore may be an urbanscape of high-rise housing and skyscrapers, but there’s one last kampong that has survived this unceasing game of development.

In this guided tour, you’ll have the opportunity to explore Kampong Buangkok, a village of colourful handmade houses surrounded by the tranquillity of nature.

Singapore Western islands speedboat tour

Nothing else screams “James Bond” louder than cruising through the waves on a speedboat. The Quicksilver yacht for the Singapore Western Islands Speedboat Tour may be no Glastron GT-150, but it does the job of sending its passengers through adrenaline high, and of course, making them look cool.

The boat chase will bring you through the history of lesser-known Western Islands such as Pulau Semakau, Pulau Jong and Pulau Bukom, provided you don’t get seasick.

My friends and I have often joked about busting into Old Changi Hospital since it’s rumoured to be one of the most haunted places of Singapore, but we never got to it…due to its restricted access.

The tour will bring you to four different haunted places, and horror junkies will get to hear spine-chilling stories of incidents that happened in the area. For the more courageous, you’ll even get to use paranormal investigation devices.

With chicken rice being the common go-to for many Singaporeans who just can’t decide on what to eat, it has almost become a symbol of our identities.

The Hainan cultural cooking class will guide you through recipes for Hainanese Chicken Rice, Hainanese Pork Chop and even Kueh Yi Bua, a Hainanese steamed dumpling made of glutinous rice flour dough.

This one is for the alcoholics. Besides exploring the history of brewery houses, you’ll get to taste varieties of signature local craft beers from The 1925 Brewing Co’s microbrewery as well. A Teochew dinner is also provided at the brewery’s house restaurant bar, where guests get to pair their alcoholic drinks with local favourite snacks.

It’s no wine and dine, but the experience will be intoxicating.
