What to Do with Your Dad on Father’s Day in Singapore

What to Do with Your Dad on Fathers Day in Singapore

Father’s Day is just around the corner, so it may be wise to start organising a way to spend the day with your dad. Given that he’s always been there for you, it seems fair to dedicate him this one day of the year. So if you think a generic card and a box of chocolates or bottle of wine won’t cut it this year, keep reading to find out some cool, budget-friendly activities you can do in and around Singapore to celebrate Father’s Day! Lucky for you, there are plenty to choose from, with options to accommodate every preference, from relaxed to adventurous.

Stroll through the Botanical Gardens

Make it a relaxed morning, afternoon or full day and head to the stunning Botanical Gardens. The open space, the greenery and the beauty of this UNESCO World Heritage Site is guaranteed to be a great spot to go for a walk and catch up with your dad. It’s also free – however, visiting the National Orchid Garden requires a ticket. We totally recommend it though, as it is the largest collection of gorgeous orchid flowers in the world.

Fly a kite

Why not revive your childhood days and fly a kite with your dad? Head to Marina Barrage to see how the sky fills with colour thanks to all the kids and their kites. It could be a good idea to pack a picnic and enjoy a relaxed lunch outside, overviewing the river.

A trip to Universal Studios

For all the adventurous, adrenaline seeking fathers out there, there’s nothing like a few wild rides to get the blood pumping. But just to be safe, maybe check with your dad first if he’d be keen about spending father’s day riding roller coasters. If he says yes, then you’re up for a fun-filled day, considering the park has seven different themed zones, with street performances, live shows, movie characters and of course, really cool rides. It’s the perfect activity that you can also extend into an all-of-family one as well. Be sure to pack plenty of snacks, water, a hat, and sunscreen – especially for the little ones!

Go bowling

For an activity that’s kind of physical but relatively easy and fun, bowling is the winner! Nothing like challenging your dad to a friendly match to showcase your good son/daughter skills and enjoy your time together on Father’s Day. Plus, bowling gets even better when you add some food and drink to your session.

Go on a cruise through the Singapore River

This popular attraction is not only for tourists. Enjoy privileged views of the city, Boat Quay, Clark Quay and Marina Bay on a 40-minute bumboat cruise. This activity is a perfect way to celebrate with your dad. The boat ride usually offers an audiovisual commentary and departs every 15 minutes. There will be plenty of photo opportunities to capture your time together as you make a new memory.

Go for a hike

Now here is where things get more sporty. However, even if your dad is not massively into fitness, a hike offers the beautiful reward of being able to experience the city from a whole different perspective. This is especially true in Singapore, where the city can feel very crowded and there’s not tons of free empty space. Some great trekking experiences you can do are found on Mount Faber or Bukit Timah, and you can pace yourselves so it isn’t too strenuous.

Go the museum

Why not take dad for an interactive history lesson? It’s always interesting to keep learning new things, so spending a day visiting museums could be a fantastic idea. The most recommendable would be the National Museum, where you’ll get all the facts and history about the founding of Singapore. To learn more about the region as a whole, a visit to the Asian Civilisations Museum won’t disappoint.

Take him to a Whiskey Bar

It’s probably safe to say that a lot of dads love whiskey. And even if you’re not that into it yourself, arranging a whiskey tasting session or taking him to a whiskey bar can be the perfect way to spend Father’s Day! Just make sure to take it easy, so you can get home in one piece. If you really want to win him over, treat him to a nice dinner too!

Fishing session

Head to Pulau Ubin for a Father’s Day Fishing session with your dad! Referred to by many simply as Ubin, this island is a perfect way to disconnect from the busy world outside and is where your dad will surely reminisce about the “good old days when everything was simpler”. The rustic roads, overgrown plantations, and secluded beaches will obviously add that adventure touch to your fishing experience. And if neither of you is a keen fisherman, just enjoy a laid-back day on Ubin with your old man.

Trying to find the best thing to give to your dad on Father’s Day can be quite a challenge, especially when his response is probably always “I don’t need anything”. So forget about presents this year and instead, dedicate one day to spoiling your dad. Hopefully this list of activities has sparked some ideas, allowing you to find the perfect way to celebrate your dad on Father’s Day and thank him for loving you unconditionally.

If you’re a young parent, you’ll start to appreciate all the things your dad had to do for you. Maybe you have to start making decisions about what’s best for your own kids. If you want to make sure that you are getting organic, wholesome foods to feed your baby or toddler, please feel free to contact us with any question or queries. Here at Bellamy’s Organic we’re always glad to help and answer any questions you may have.
