6. Night Safari

Probably one of the top attractions in a city that is full of tourist hotspots. Most of us have been to, or at least have heard of, safaris during the day time. However, what that means is that you get to miss out the nocturnal animals in all their magnificence in their local habitat. Not if you visit the sprawling 40 hectare park in Singapore that boasts of over 1000 animals belong to 115 species. Almost 30 per cent of those species are critically threatened, facing the risk of extinction. This is the kind of night life your team wouldn’t have envisioned in Singapore, one that is both entertaining and educational.

Visit Tanjong Pagar Distripark to marvel at the artifacts in five different art galleries. From minimalist, modern and contemporary art to indigenous art from local tribes as far as Australia, you will encounter one masterpiece after another. The Distripark also has an art space to organize enriching team building competitions – the type that involves free associations, creativity and imagination – that allow people to express their own interpretation of team work and ethos.

  1. Great ideas! Our company will be having an anniversary celebration 2 months from now, and I’m already planning it right now. Might consider proposing some of your ideas to my boss. Keep it up!

  2. Victorya Tham

    There is actually a pretty cool venue that you missed out in the West of Singapore that offers a very exclusive and plush environment for corporate events that can raise the bar to a whole new level. With a stunning view of the race course and a venue setting enough to support up to 20 people for intimate social bonding or retreats, Singapore Turf Club is really a hidden gem.

  5. Can anyone recommend an amazing and challenging outdoor experience in Singapore?. At least 2 days. Including overnight

  6. We just attended ‘Perfume making workshop’ . What a beautiful idea and amazing place.

  7. I had absolutely no clue that Singapore had a rural, green area. Neat! I knew the city, the beauty and the orderliness of the city – and the fact that you’ll get smacked down if you sully the cleanliness lol – but the nature aspect outside of town really resonates with me. I can do a city, even a nice one, for about a month before I need to head for the green, nature, where all the cute critters hang out in peace. Way cool safari too.

    Thanks for sharing the story and these eye popping images!
