Turf Club and Horse Racing
Singapore has over 200 bowling centres, each offering more than 20 lanes. Most bowling centres open as early as 9am and close between 1am and 2am, though there are some 24-hour centres, mostly in the Marina South area. Prices range from SGD 2 to SGD 4 per game exclusive of shoe rentals.
Cycling is a modest mode of transportation, a great recreational-cum-exercise activity (cycling paths link many parts of the island), and last but not least, it can challenge one's sense of adventure in the form of mountain or dirt biking. Bicycles can be rented at a number of public parks, including those at East Coast Park, Sentosa, Pasir Ris and Bishan. Pulau Ubin also offers mountain and dirt biking.
On-site racing as well as "live" telecasts of Malaysian races can be enjoyed at the Singapore Racecourse at Kranji. Visitors must be aged 18 years and above to enter the Club on racedays.
