One of the best and most relaxing ways to explore the center of Singapore is by taking a ride on one of the boats on the Singapore River. It is a nice change, especially at night, to see the magnificent skyline of Singapore, the lively nightlife of the Quay areas and to see Singapore’s symbol, the Merlion, at Marina Bay. This boat ride is especially nice for first-timers to Singapore, as it gives you a total impression of what Singapore has to offer. The ticket offices and departing places are located at Raffles Place (both sides of the river), Clarke Quay Jetty and Clarke Quay Festive Market.

There are also numerous scuba diving schools offering PADI or NAUI recognised courses. Day and night diving in local waters and nearby Malaysia are also available. Sailing and windsurfing is generally popular on the eastern coast, where most facilities are located. For waterskiing, the best locations are Sembawang and Kallang River (a venue for previous world championships). Singapore offers easy access to numerous offshore islands and Singaporeans drive over to Malaysia to enjoy the watersports off the East coast. Fishing is a year-round sport. Boats and equipment, inexpensive to hire, are available at the Jardine Steps, Changi Park.
Cycling is great opportunity to explore Singapore. Dedicated paths link many parts of the island and bikes can be rented in many public parks, notably those at East Coast Park, Sentosa, Pasir Ris and Bishan. Mountain or dirt biking is particularly popular in Pulau Ubin.
