Sometimes we just want to escape the concrete jungle that is Singapore…and we forget that it’s actually entirely possible! Some places like Xiao Guilin in Bukit Batok and the Chinese Garden in Jurong East are filled with culture and history. Beyond that, our own sunny islands also offer a relaxing getaway and a chance to cycle, kayak and commune with nature.
