Pasir Ris, like many other Singaporean neighbourhoods, was formerly a kampung before being transformed into residential estates and recreational places we have come to know and love like Downtown East and Wild Wild Wet. Even after its sophisticated makeover, this peaceful part of town remains a relaxing retreat for locals and nature enthusiasts. Here is a list of things you can do to have fun in Pasir Ris.
At this roller-skating rink at Downtown east, show off your amazing footwork while burning approximately 250 calories every 30 minutes, all while having fun! For skating enthusiasts, HiRoller provides customers with great experiences complete with disco lights and pounding music. If it’s your first time, don’t worry about falling flat on your face as inline skating experts and qualified instructors are all on standby to assist you (recommended for newbie skaters to be at least 6 years old and up). This is a great place if you are looking to learn the art of skating or simply want to sharpen your skills. Why not skip the park the next time you feel like going skating and head on over to HiRoller Indoor Skating Rink instead!
