Here I have a few recommendations for you.

Another reason to keep an eye is because there are a lot of impersonators in the Park. If you dreamed of meeting your idol but never had a chance, keep an eye out for an impersonator of your favourite character or actor and actress and get a picture with them!
Wild Wild Wet
In case you don’t know, Singapore, because it’s in the Southeast Asian region, does not have winter. The weather is hot and humid all year round. And what’s better to fight against the heat by visiting the Wild Wild Wet. I’m sure the name gives you some hints. Yes! It’s a water theme park. Opening hours are a bit tricky with the Wild Wild Wet. During the weekdays, as it’s not peak days, it’s only open from 1pm to 7pm. During the weekend or public holidays however, the theme park is open from 10am to 7pm. So make sure you plan your trip ahead and don’t let the fun cut short. And this is a no brainer, make sure to pack your swimsuits, flip flops and a dry set of clothes to change into. The Wild Wild Wet has a lot of amazing thrilling amusement rides to get onto. There’s a 360 loop ride, a speedy flush tunnel and the most thrilling of all the free fall. You might want to stay away from the free fall if you are terrified of heights, as you will experience a 1.2 metre vertical fall!
