What's very local
Always very connected, Singaporeans are very fond of meetup groups, which allow you to share passions and hobbies with other people and to be informed via the website www.meetup.com about yoga activities, running, hikes to be planned in a geographical radius to be determined by yourself. At the weekend, head to the island of Sentosa for beach volleyball games with friends, a good way to disconnect from the week's activities.
