8 Fun Things To Do in Singapore – September 2020


September is typically when Singapore turns into a charming stage for theatre artists, musicians, F1 enthusiasts and adventurous audiences from all over. This year, things are different (due to the pandemic), the city is quieter, and the traffic is smoother, but the appetite for fun and entertainment is insatiable.

The past couple of months have been, you could say, no walk in the park. While we’re turning to online entertainment, virtual festivals and gaming devices to de-stress, nothing beats the joy of frolicking under the sun by the beach or simply hanging out with your best pals at your favourite cafe.

Can we still have fun living in a time of pandemic like this? 

I don’t think there’s a perfect answer to this, but in the coronavirus era where work and play are carried out at home, the desire to go outside (unless you lived in a big mansion) even if it’s just for a while, is natural since we can’t even go on a holiday abroad.

Now, instead of going out every day, masked flâneurs might consider reducing the frequency and always plan ahead to avoid the crowd. Let’s keep in mind that Singapore is still in Phase 2 of safe-reopening.

As the pandemic rages on worldwide, we have adopted a new way of living such as wearing a face mask, carrying a hand sanitizer, standing or sitting at least 1-metre apart when queueing or dining out, and no large gathering of more than 5 persons.

Have Fun This September While Safe-distancing

Fun isn’t entirely cancelled as we are seeing more local attractions and premises certified SG Clean. 

We unpack 8 fun things to do in Singapore this month, including an indoor trampoline park, a neon-lit skating rink, an obstacle course on the sea and a fleet of vintage Vespa. For those looking for fun activities to do with your kids, we’ve got you covered as well!

1. Living Worlds: An Animal Planet Experience (4 Sep – 13 Sep 2020) at Science Centre

While your plans to experience the savannah in Africa or volunteer in a zoo abroad have been shelved indefinitely, you can journey to Science Centre Singapore and immerse yourself in the Living Worlds: An Animal Planet — the world’s first travelling wildlife and exploration exhibition created and produced by Kingsmen in collaboration with Discovery Inc and Science Centre Singapore.
