5 FREE Activities to do in Singapore this Weekend (17 – 18 Apr 2021)

Wondering what to do this weekend? Here’s the SG Lifestyle Team’s weekly round-up of FREE WEEKEND ACTIVITES TO DO IN SINGAPORE (well, mostly free) during Phase 3 as we try to adapt to a new normal while waiting for the current COVID-19 situation to improve.

This includes a mixture of virtual/digital events/activities you can do at home, as well as physical events/places to visit/attend. Nevertheless, please do your due diligence to do your part to stay safe.

Recommended Advisory Notice: Let’s play our part to Stay Safe during this period:
Wear a mask and see a doctor promptly if you are sick! ⁣⁣
 Wash your hands regularly and properly using soap and water! ⁣⁣


1) Try out: No-Oven / No-Egg / Beautiful Fruit Jelly Cheesecake Recipe / Cup Measure / Dragon Fruit (Pitaya)

Make this jelly cheesecake with dragon fruit that is not only delicious but is pleasing to the eye with its beautiful shade of pink. Be mesmerized by your creation this weekend!


2) Workout to Fitness: 5-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout With Carrie Underwood and Eve Overland

Fire up your legs with squats and lunge variations then take it to the mat to activate your core with planks, boat holds, and flutter kicks. This week, SG Lifestyle’s fitness pick for the week brings you 5-Minute Bodyweight HIIT Workout With Carrie Underwood and Eve Overland by POPSUGAR Fitness. This no-equipment routine is perfect if you wish to break out in a quick sweat to lose some calories.


3) Explore: The Sea Show at Singapore Maritime Gallery

Running from 1 April to 13 July 2021, The Sea Show is held at the Singapore Maritime Gallery (SMG)’s Changing Gallery which is located conveniently beside Marina South Pier MRT Station. Offering a maze-like experience, you will wander through colourful artworks, animations and installations to learn about the ocean. It is great for both kids and adults where one could also play with the AR face filters that’ll turn you into famous sea explorers like Christopher Columbus and Zheng He.

If you are someone who fancies photo opportunities, grab them at ‘Shark Café’, a playful re-creation of an existing area in a remote part of the Pacific Ocean where the Great White sharks migrate to in the winter or at the rubber duck installation that reflects the shipping container spillage incident in 1992 where thousands of rubber ducks were lost in the Pacific Ocean.

Address: 31 Marina Coastal Drive, Level 2, Singapore 018988 (1-min walk from Marina South Pier MRT Station)
Opening hours: Tuesdays to Sundays, from 9am to 6pm (1 April to 13 July 2021)


4) Visit: MacPherson Void Deck Van Gogh Exhibition

Yearn to visit grand museums in European cities like Paris, London, or Amsterdam to see some of the finest artworks? But with overseas travel on hold, perhaps this Vincent van Gogh exhibition at a MacPherson HDB void deck will have to do for now. Of course, the pieces here aren’t legit, since it’s not an official museum after all but the illustrations were aptly realistic and this the void deck gallery does a great job of bringing art closer to Singapore residents.

Address: 56 Pipit Rd, Singapore 370056
Nearest MRT: MacPherson Station


5) Explore: Caribbean Cinema Showcase

The Caribbean Cinema Showcase at the Festive Arts Theatre in Our Tampines Hub will be ongoing from 14 to 25 April 2021! To catch any of the nine interesting movie films, tickets can be redeemed at the Customer Service Counter upon registration via scanning of the QR code. One person is entitled to redeem 2 tickets only and first-come-first-served basis.

Proudly brought to you by Our Tampines Hub, Embassy of Mexico, Embassy of Cuba and Embassy of Venezuela.


We hope you enjoy this week’s round-up of weekend activities to do in Singapore FOR FREE!
