Majority of Singaporeans who have lived in Singapore would have realised that the things we want to try for fun are extremely expensive.
That should not stop us from enjoying ourselves over the weekend. Here are some ideas to explore during the weekend on a budget!
Weekend Plans On A Budget
Low Budget: $20
$20 is very little money especially when you plan on going out during the weekends. However, no money should not mean no fun! Go out and get active by going for hikes which are totally free or rent a bike using the Obike app and cycle around town or rent a bike at east coast park and enjoy the beach breeze. Use the remaining money to enjoy a meal at the East Coast Lagoon Food Village where you’ll be able to enjoy a satisfying meal for a minimum of $10.
Obike: $0.50 for 15mins
East Coast bike rental: $10 for 1-2hours
Not a fan of cycling? Try some mental exercise at The Mindcafe! This board game café holds 328 different kinds of games, all you’ll have to do is pay $8.80 for a free flow of drinks and snacks for one hour of gaming.
One hour of boardgames + free flow snacks and drinks = $8.80
Medium Budget: $40
There are currently six trampoline parks all around Singapore with BOUNCE being one of the newest. With 28 interconnected trampolines set up as a free jumping arena, there are loads of space to jump about. There are other zones such as ‘The Wall’ where you get to experience wall running a live your dreams as a circus performer or even play a game of trampoline dodgeball with soft dodgeballs!
As BOUNCE is located at Cathay Cineleisure, enjoy a meal around town with the remaining $15!
Get your adrenaline pumping and have fun!
General Access: $25 for the first hour
Flea Market Shopping
Does bouncing about give you a headache? Opt for some shopping instead! Visit flea markets with local designers, artists or even indie business where are will be sure to find something unique for yourself or for Christmas gifts.
Check out the Market for Artists And Designers at the Little Red Dot Museum or The Public Garden Christmas flea market at Suntec convention hall. Last but not least, check out the largest flea market organizer FleaWhere for second-hand goods or even brand-new items from blog shops!
High Budget: $60
Fun at Sentosa
With a little bit more cash in your pocket, visit Sentosa for a day of fun! Try out the Luge at $28 per person for 4 luge and skyrides. If you would rather cool off from the heat and don’t feel like getting sandy, visit Adventure Cove Waterpark at $38 per person!
LUGE (4 Luge and Skyrides): $28
Adventure Cove: $38
TIP: Code valid until 31 Dec 2017: LUGEFORLESS when buying online (For Singaporeans/PRs only!)
If travelling all the way to Sentosa is not something you want to be doing on your weekends, travel to Downtown East where Wild Wild Wet awaits you, with three new rides, ticket prices are at $32 for adults on the weekends!
Indulge in every Singaporeans’ favourite past time, eating! Check out some buffets under $50 like Brazil Churrasco that serves authentic Brazilian barbecue at only $49 for dinner!
These are great ideas if you want to go out and explore the country BUT if you can’t be bothered to leave your house, create a Netflix account (if you don’t already have one) which offers a free month trial and have an instant noodle party!
