Named after a Malay drum to signal prayer time or as an emergency alarm, this Singapore heartland is aptly named for a neighborly atmosphere that just gets your heart beating. Bedok is home to delectable dining spots, hawker haunts, and different sporting activities, giving you an extensive to-do list. Here are some of our suggestions for you to add.

  1. Heartbeat @ Bedok

A heartland needs a heartbeat, and true to its name, this establishment is just what you imagine–a place for community and bonding. Heartbeat @ Bedok includes facilities for a fun dip or exercise, like a swimming pool, jacuzzi tub, slides and more. This complex also integrates a polyclinic, care centre, and public library, and offers other activities to check out.

Address: 11 Bedok North St Singapore 469662

Business Hours: 6:3am to 9:30pm for its swimming facilities (hours may vary for its other facilities)

  1. Bedok Reservoir

If you’re after sights, scenery, and serenity, you can’t go wrong with one of the park choices of Eastern Singaporeans–Bedok Reservoir. The park offers a four-kilometre-long trail for runners and joggers, which is also quite suitable for those who love a leisurely stroll. Its beautiful floating deck offers a good view of the reservoir, and is situated near the activity site where you can take multiple watersports activities like dragon boating, kayaking, and fishing.

Business Hours: 7am to 7pm lighting hours daily

  1. Forest Adventure

Known as Singapore’s first and largest treetop adventure course, Forest Adventure is an action-packed experience for all ages. Swing across the canopies, walk tightropes, and conquer all kinds of obstacles like a king or queen of the jungle (or a Tolkien Wood Elf, if that’s more your style). 

Address: Bedok Reservoir Park, Singapore 479244.

Business Hours: Open every day from 9:30am to 6:30pm except Monday and Thursday

  1. Bedok Interchange Hawker Centre

Hawker Centres are a major part of Singaporean culture, and it’s no different for the Bedok heartlands. A visit to this place can give you insight into local lifestyle and grub. Bedok Interchange offers delectable delights in different stalls–two of which are awarded with the Michelin Bib-Gourmand! 

Address: Blk, 208B New Upper Changi Rd, Singapore 462208

Address: 348 Bedok Rd, Level 2, Singapore 469560 

Business Hours: Open everyday from 11:30am to 10:30pm except Monday
