5 Places in Singapore For The Perfect Listening Adventure
We all need a break sometimes. A break from the noise, from the hustle and bustle of life. If you’re looking to escape the busy city and venture into the calm greenery of Singapore, we’ve got some recommendations for you. Yes, Singapore is not as boring as it seems.
But of course - what’s an adventure without music? Just like how we use Instagram filters to beautify what we see, music is a filter that beautifies what we hear. But music with low-quality sound is just noise.
So we recommend an extremely high quality portable speaker that’s able to follow you wherever you go. With the Sonos Roam, your ears will be blessed with one of the best filters of music you could find.
#1: Explore the remains of the past
Travel back in time to the countryside of the 1960s. The newly opened Green Corridor, with its antiquated railway tracks and 60s-style bridge is so reminiscent of the past, it doesn’t even feel like you’re in the 21st century anymore.
Take your experience to a whole new level by immersing yourself in tunes of the yesteryears with your best travel buddy, the Roam. Roam can definitely fit into your backpack. Just imagine a can of coke that isn’t cylindrical but is triangular instead - that’s the size of Roam! And don’t worry, it’s small stature doesn’t equate to a small sound.

#2: Lose yourself in a lush labyrinth
Maybe you’re into something magical but not ancient. We recommend the Pasir Ris maze garden that’s hidden deep within the estate. It’s sure to make you feel like you’re in the world of Alice in wonderland.
And no matter which nook or cranny of the maze you’re wandering through, Roam’s automatic Trueplay™ tuning allows it to smartly adapt to your surroundings and even whatever you’re listening to. At the end of the day, you get a sound that’s astonishingly detailed and perfectly balanced.

#3: A hardy hiking trip
Venture into the depths of the forests of Singapore. For a seasoned adventurer who’s open to the mud and grime, we’d recommend a hike at Coney Island, the Macritchie Reservoir or at Bukit Timah hill. Afraid of bringing Roam to the rugged hiking road? Don’t fret! Roam is solidly constructed and drop resistant. It’s ready for any adventure. Are you?
For the wandering traveller who’s rather opposed to the dirt and prefers a peaceful, clean journey, Fort Canning Park is the right choice for you. In fact, Fort Canning is lined with historical treasure troves (not literally though). It’s almost like an outdoor museum!

#4: Frolick freely in a Lalang Field
“Cherry lips, crystal skies, I could show you incredible things.” Visit the Punggol Lalang field to truly see some incredible things. Warm hues all around, and sun-kissed lalangs dancing in the wind. It’s a next level fairytale.
With it’s sleek, minimalistic design, Roam fits right in. So if you’re heading over to the lalang field for a photoshoot, don’t be shy to let Roam sneak into your picture too.

#5: Chill-out Beach Day
Let the warm sand embrace you while the cool seawater playfully goes back and forth, enticing you to just lunge right in.
The beach brings out the child-like nature in all of us - from the seashells lining the shore to the sandcastles galore! Try exploring SG's hidden beaches to avoid crowded spaces this season (and enjoy your music to the fullest!).
And you don’t have to worry about getting water or sand stuck in your Roam because it’s rated IP67. That means that it’s waterproof and dust resistant! Bring it to the beach all you want and relish the amaaazing vibes.
What to listen to: Levitating - Dua Lipa
To sum it all up, there’s so much more that you can do in this little nation-city. With good music, your local travel experience would come up to a whole new level! So grab your Roam, some sporty shoes and head out that door.
