Go on some heritage walking trails in Singapore this long weekend

Staying in Singapore for the long weekend? How about grabbing a friend or two and doing some heritage walk. There’s a great new app that lets you do that, and for a good cause too. LocoMole has 12 curated walking trails with full instructions, planned activities and estimated time. Options include cultural walks in Little India, Chinatown, Joo Chiat and guided nature trails in Pulau Ubin or Gardens By The Bay. For each point on the trail, there are descriptions, historical backstories and some challenges and rewards. After visiting the Singapore City Gallery, for example, you can take a little quiz to see how much you learned.

Need further convincing? You can do it for a good cuase. LocoMole also just launched Exploring Singapore for a Cause, where the 12 designed trails are tied to a charity foundation that you will learn about as you walk. The first one is on January 14, which begins from Clarke Quay Central waterfront space and ends at SMU School of Accountancy, and the focus is on Make-A-Wish Foundation. Admission is free.
