There are a number of ways to get around Singapore. One option besides driving your own car is using public transportation, which is the faster, more efficient way to go from one place to another.
In places like Sentosa, there are different modes of transportation local and foreign visitors can use. They can roam around the island in other ways, such as the Sentosa Express, Singapore Cable Car Sky Network, Skyline Luge Sentosa, and their Gogreen Bicycles and Segway rentals. More information on these can be found on Store.Sentosa.com.sg.
Did you know that there are ways to explore Singapore in an eco-friendly manner that’s also healthy and good for your body? Here are some of them:
Sentosa’s Gogreen Segways
Innovations like this are great because not only are they good for the environment, but they also encourage people to choose the greener way of going from one place to another, even if it is just for a short distance.
This service offered by Sentosa tours its visitors through the key attractions on the island.
Taking a walk through the streets and attractions of Singapore will make you appreciate the place even more. Not only will it save you money from your usual commute, but it will also be good for your body.
According to a study, walking can help slow down the aging process, serve as an antidepressant and boost cognitive function. It has been found out that physical activity, walking included, can reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s by 50%.
Riding a bike increases mobility for those with cognitive issues, as it could serve as a form of therapy as well as exercise. You can see different places, save money and energy, and have a healthier mind and body. Also, you won’t have to worry about fuel and other toxic substances.
The next time you feel like going out for a bike ride, try going to popular parks such as the Pasir Ris Park, Jurong Central Park and Sembawang Park. If you are in the mood for a little adrenaline rush in your system, challenge yourself on mountain bike trails such as the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve or the Kent Ridge Bike Trail.
These are ways to encourage people to conserve energy and live greener. These might only make a small contribution, but it is a start. The more innovations like eco-friendly modes of transportation become available in the future, the more people will become more aware of the environment.
