We asked teenager Anushka Ranade to fill us in on the best ways for teenagers to entertain themselves in Singapore. So, here goes…
The cinema is always a great way to spend a rainy day with either friends or family. If you’re on school holidays, you can go any time – sessions start nice and early and go until late at night. There are plenty of cinemas in Singapore, including Golden Village, which has locations all over the island and show timings to suit anyone.
#2 Universal Studios Singapore
Who doesn’t love a weekend of rollercoasters and a ton of pictures to post with your friends? Head over to Universal Studios at Resorts World Sentosa to have an action-packed day filled with rides, shows, street entertainment and laughs with your mates.
Enjoy a chilled but fun day at Sentosa Island where you can ride a Segway, tan at the beach and eat great food. I definitely recommend the Skyline Luge and Skyride, two awesome Sentosa attractions.
An afternoon of bowling sounds like a top way to spend some time, especially with family. There are many great bowling alleys in Singapore, but I suggest in the first instance you head over to Kallang Bowl or SuperBowl to enjoy an hour or two of fun.
#5 Holland Village
A great place to meet all your friends is Holland Village – it’s a very popular spot for teenagers to hang out. Grab an acai bowl with some friends at Project Acai, eat at a restaurant or just hang around and have a laugh.
#6 Orchard Road
Has schoolwork been getting in the way of shopping? Might be time to head to Orchard to walk around with friends or family and visit your favourite store. A popular spot for teenage girls is Brandy Melville in ION Orchard. Plan a whole day, and break up the shopping with meals eat at your favourite restaurants – they’re all within easy walking distance from each other.
#7 Various Events in Singapore
I find out about all the different events in Singapore from a lot of sources – particularly ads on Instagram and other social media. The Singapore Rugby 7s occurs yearly, as does the Singapore Formula 1 weekend, and there are regular concerts featuring top artists. Any of these events are a great way for you and your friends to get together to sing, dance and enjoy yourselves.
#8 Ice Skating
If you love ice-skating, Singapore has multiple rinks that you can visit. There’s one in Marina Bay and another in Kallang. Dress warm if you get cold easily!
#9 Rock climbing
I personally love rock climbing – I think it’s a great way to spend a Saturday morning. All you need is one other person with you to have a great time. I particularly like Climb Central at 1 Stadium Place, though there are other places near you to rock climb too.
#10 Level Up Arcade
Parents, want to have fun while your kids are busy? In this arcade, you can unwind at the bar and play some drinking games while your kids are having a great time in the Arcade (and getting some great pictures for social media!). So, it’s fun for everyone!
