9. Climb@T3

Usually, you’d make a trip down to Changi Airport Terminal 3 to catch a flight or pick someone up (unless you are an Eastie!). But what about signing yourself up for some thrill at Changi Airport’s new attraction? No, we’re not talking about The Slide@T3. 

Climb@T3 is a wall-climbing spot that recently opened in March 2023! An eight-metre wall stationed at the basement level, this attraction has climbing routes that both beginners and experienced climbers can enjoy. 

This facility uses an auto-belay system instead of having a belayer who is connected to the climber by a rope. This technology automatically catches a climber if he falls, making it quite safe to use. It is also easier to manage and more people can climb at the same time!

Note: Kids under 12 will need to be accompanied by an adult. You can also opt for a guided class if you need an instructor to show you the ropes. 

Address: Changi Airport Terminal 3, Airport Blvd., B3-01/02 65, 819663

It holds the title of being the first of its kind: a sports complex that lets you ski, skate, and surf within the same premise. 

Wish you could be snowboarding up in the mountains of Hokkaido or riding the waves in Hawaii? This attraction can make that happen for you. What’s more, you get to experience being high up in the Alps by utilising their VR ski simulator!

Address: 10A Exeter Rd, Singapore 239958

11. SkatePark@Lakeside Gardens

Prefer to do sports while being surrounded by greenery? Here’s an attraction for you! SkatePark@Lakeside Gardens is the largest outdoor skate park in Singapore, spanning about two football fields. The park consists of a parkour park, a three-metre bouldering wall, as well as five skate pods that are tailored to different experience levels.

12. Rail Corridor (North)

Speaking of attractions in nature, the northern part of the Rail Corridor opened in early 2023 as part of the Singapore Green Plan 2030, an initiative that will introduce more nature trails. The trail spans more than 21 kilometres, from Kranji MRT Station to Spooner Road (near Tanjong Pagar). 

Some features to check out there include: the 2,000-square-metre field for community events; a six-metre-high steel bridge on Hillview; and a lookout deck that offers a charming view of the Rail Mall and Bukit Timah Nature Reserve

As the former railway line ran through Singapore into Malaysia, the transformation of the railway into a nature trail is not 100% complete. Luckily, other parts of the trail and the Tanjong Pagar Railway Station will be reopened after 2026, giving nature lovers something to look forward to.
