As much as we appreciate sunny weather more than the rain, the weather in Singapore has just been WAY too hot lately. Here are some places to check out if you need to cool off this weekend.
Wave House Sentosa, 36 Siloso Beach, Sentosa, Singapore 099007 (Wave House Sentosa), Tel: 6376 4336, Opening Hours: 10.30am – 7pm daily (last booking at 6.30pm)
We’re not the most sporty people, but SeaBreeze Water-Sports offers plenty of water activities that make us want to at least attempt to be sporty. You can wakeboard, paddleboard, or even just lie on a donut float as a speedboat pulls you along. They also have water-propelled jetpacks, so you can fly around like Ironman if you so wish. Unless you’re heavier than the maximum recommended weight of 100kg, that is. In which case um, maybe try a donut instead? We mean the float of course, not the pastry. Stop it ah.

Capital Tower #01-07 (Ground Floor), 168 Robinson Road, Singapore 068912, Tel: 6327 8045, Opening Hours: 8am – 11pm (Monday to Friday), 12pm – 11pm (Saturday)
If being outdoors is not your thing, head down to Urban Fairways for some air-conditioned comfort instead. The indoor golf club also has a bar area, so you can have a drink while brushing up on your golf game. They also have a decent selection of sandwiches, bar snacks and drinks in case you’re feeling peckish.

21 Jurong Town Hall Road, Singapore 609433 (Located next to the Science Centre Singapore), Tel: 6425 2500, Opening Hours: 12pm – 6pm
Okay okay, we know the Science Centre isn’t exactly the coolest hangout around (throwback to Primary School excursions anyone?), BUT the Omni-Theatre there is worth checking out. The impressive 248-seat IMAX dome theatre screens interesting movies about everything from planets to ancient Egypt, so it’ll be like watching the Discovery Channel on a really, really big screen. And hey, $14 for an IMAX movie is not bad right?

8 Sentosa Gateway, Singapore 098269 (Resorts World Sentosa), Tel: 6577 8880, Opening Hours: 9am – 10pm daily
You know how sometimes you have one of those days where you’re like, “Can I JUST get a break already?!” Well, ESPA is the perfect place for that much-needed weekend treat. The massage and facial treatments are relatively pricey, but you’ll get to use the luxurious facilities there for free – including a steam room, sauna and three fancy dipping pools. Seriously, LOOK at that pool. And no children peeing in it either! (Because you know that happens in most public pools.)

5. The Rink
2 Jurong East Central 1, JCube Level 1, Singapore 609731, Tel: 6684 2374, Opening Hours: 10.30am – 11:45pm daily (May vary based on private bookings. Check here for a more accurate schedule.)
What better way is there to beat the heat than to go ice-skating? The Rink at JCube is Singapore’s only Olympic-sized skating rink, so you can unleash your inner Kristi Yamaguchi for just $14. Bring your own gloves and socks to save on added charges, but don’t bring a big bag because the lockers there are kind of small. Also, remember to check the schedule before heading down, so you don’t overlap with any ice re-surfacing sessions.
