Singapore may be small but there is an abundance of activities to enjoy within this little red dot.
From busy town areas to peaceful heartlands, every corner of Singapore has something fun to discover - you just have to look at the right places.
If you need some inspiration for your weekend plans, here are five activities that are worth trying with your friends:
1. Hi-Roller indoor skating
Go back to the good old 1950s and 60s at Hi-Roller, Singapore's largest indoor skating rink.
With its loud music and colourful disco lights, this place has become a trendy place for youths to visit - you should know what I mean if you're on TikTok.
Don't forget to bring along a pair of long socks for your visit.

Worried you can't balance? Fret not, other than the usual roller blades, they also offer quad skates that have four wheels for better stability.
Weekends and public holidays are their peak periods so do book in advance if you wish to visit them during this time. Due to COVID-19, they now have a limited capacity of 50 pax.
Visit their website for more information.
2. Pottery making at Taoz Ceramics
Unleash your inner artist and let your creative juices flow at Taoz Ceramics. Located in Orchard Gateway and JCube, they offer wheel throwing trial classes and ceramic classes from the beginner stage to the advanced stage.
If this is your first time trying out pottery, you may want to register for the trial class first before deciding whether or not to take actual classes.
The wheel throwing trial class costs $40 per pax for 30 minutes. Fees are inclusive of one piece of clay, tools, firing and glazing. You can also decorate your piece after the first round of firing if you wish.
While pottery may seem daunting, it is an activity that anyone can enjoy.

3. K Bowling club
K Bowling Club is Singapore's first cosmic bowling alley. Located in 313 Somerset, this all-in-one hangout with a bar, pool tables, arcade and more is definitely down everyone's alley.
The bowling alleys and seats are lit with bright neon lights. While waiting for your turn to bowl, you can chill in those egg-shaped seats and enjoy your favorite music videos playing on the TV screens.
The ambience will help distract your friends if you're bad at bowling!
