Singapore is actually a whole lot more fun if you are adventurous. There are tons of exhilarating sports and outdoor activities to take part in and they aren’t necessarily your everyday sports.

Besides the usual surfing and skating, think water-propelled jet packs that “flies” you up and even yoga on a stand-up paddle board in the sea.

Whether you are feeling stressed from work, or you just need some quick unwinding over the weekend, here are 10 Fun & Adventurous Outdoor Activities to Do in Singapore

Time to get out of your comfort zone, guys.


Cable-skiing or wake-boarding is one of those water sports that are both thrilling and exciting. It might take you some time to get used to it, but once you are actually skiing correctly, that adrenaline rush is unbeatable.

Beginners should always go for proper, guided lessons to ensure you are doing it safely and correctly.

Jet skiing is widely regarded as a luxurious sport as it is popularised by celebrities who own their own jet skis in the Bahamas.

Stand-up paddling is not as easy as it looks, but it provides a nice variation to the more intense sport of surfing. Even kids can take up lessons at East Coast Park.

For others, it can also be a slow lead-up to surfing if you are too intimidated by it.
