Singapore has a wilder side, says ranch owner Mani Shanker.

Here are her top three picks for outdoor enthusiasts.


FOREST ADVENTURE

The treetop obstacle course at Bedok Reservoir Park has ladders, swings, trapezes and giant zip lines to ensure a fun-filled day. Visitors can swing from tree to tree and zip across Bedok Reservoir.


CYCLING

Explore Singapore by cycling on its park connectors - a seamless network that links parks, nature sites and housing estates.

The Park Connector Network was started in 1992 with a 5km stretch linking Bishan Park to Braddell Road. It has since expanded to 300km. In September, the 36km Central Urban Loop was launched, linking Hougang to Punggol and Kallang.


BOATING

It might seem an exclusive sport, but you can try it out at the Marina Country Club. The only private club in Singapore that is open to the public, it offers boats for hire, along with a skipper.
