Just this month, the Singapore borders reopened, welcoming tourists far and wide. Though everyone was more excited about travelling into Malaysia, Singapore was gearing up too. The little red dot may be small, but attractions are never endless here, which is what attracts tourists to our home. But sometimes, it’s nice to play tourist in our own country. With that, here are some new and exciting attractions that are about to come to Singapore. Trust us when we say, you’ll want to check them out!
1. ‘Avatar: The Experience’ At Gardens By The Bay
Calling all fans of Avatar – if you’ve ever dreamt about entering the mystical world, then your dream is about to come true. Avatar: The Experience will visit Gardens by the Bay’s Cloud Forest later this year, making imagination a reality. The breathtaking waterfall, winding paths, and exotic plants of the greenhouse will take on new meaning in Pandora’s universe. Bioluminescent landscapes and unearthly animals, as well as the Na’vi civilization, will be explored in real life! While the exact dates of this attraction are yet to be announced, you can join the guest list here to be among the first to be updated.
2. Trifecta by The Ride Side
Do you sometimes wish that you can snowboard, surf and skate at a single arena? Well, you’re in luck because a new (and the first) snow, surf, and skate park in Asia is about to open at Orchard Road in Singapore. As of now, Trifecta by The Ride Side is set to open its doors in 2023, and will definitely be one of the new and exciting attractions in Singapore. But the plan is to have three separate arenas for skateboarding, snowboarding and surfing. The Ride Side also hopes to focus on community building via eco-educational programmes and tours, a retail shop, and unique cooperation with other businesses. For more information, click here.
