3. Kallang Ice World

One of the most popular activities to do in winter is ice-skating so head over to Kallang Ice World and get your skates on. The only ice skating rink left in Singapore (The Rink at JCube is sadly permanently closed with the closure of JCube), it's the best place to try out this sport right here in Singapore. If you're new to skating, don't worry as they have equipment that can help you get comfortable on the ice.

Price: from $16 (there are student-priced tickets for $7.20 based on first-come-first-serve!)
