e it facing your fears on the high elements to visiting a quaint art museum and luscious park, a host of attractions will be opening this year right in Singapore.

1. AJ Hackett Sentosa
A new iconic attraction is being built on everyone’s favourite leisure island that’ll make you jump for joy — and also off a tower.
Siloso Beach will be home to Singapore’s first-ever 50m-tall bungee tower.
It’ll be accompanied by several new activities that will make even the most hardcore of adrenaline junkies lick their lips in anticipation.
Take a leap of faith off the 50-tall structure — but there’s more than one way to jump. This attraction also features giant swing with speed up to 120kmh, vertical skywalk with the height up to 44m, and walk through 47m-high sky bride to soak the magnificent view of Sentosa.
2. Parkview Museum
An art space will soon be opening in Bugis in Parkview Square (600 North Bridge Road) — Singapore’s very own Gotham City.
With a 7m-tall ceiling and an unobstructed space, this museum has the potential to feature massive installations.
The Parkview Museum will be opening with a global travelling art exhibition “On Sharks & Humanity” from March 9 to June 26, and admission will be FREE.
3. Our Tampines Hub
Easties, rejoice! Our Tampines Hub, Singapore’s first-ever integrated community and lifestyle hub, will be fully completed this year.
Phase 1 of the project was launched late last year, which includes a 40-stall mega hawker centre that seats 800, sports hall, childcare centre with 180 vacancies and over 200,000 sq feet of shopping heaven.
Phases 2 and 3 will have a bowling centre, 24/7 gym, karaoke facility, regional library, six rooftop swimming pools and 5,000-seat stadium.
Phases 2 and 3 are expected to be launched in March and June respectively.

According to SgProperty, the development is designed by renowned architect Christoph Ingenhoven, who is known for his green and sustainable buildings. He was the man behind Google’s headquarters in Mountain View, California.
The development at 21 & 23 Marina Way is expected to open in the first half of this year.

This year promises to be a good one for nature lovers, as besides Marina One’s Green Heart, a new Ethnobotany Garden is being developed for their pleasure, this time at the Singapore Botanical Gardens.
The new garden, the first of its kind in Singapore, will have an area of approximately 1 hectare, and is expected to open in late 2017.
It will house “Asia’s largest collection of economic, medicinal and ethnobotanical plants” that are used by indigenous cultures in South-east Asia”, according to Channel NewsAsia.

DSM Singapore will be the flagship store in South-east Asia.

The world’s best airport is about to get even better with the introduction of its newest terminal, Terminal 4, which is scheduled to open in the 2nd half of the year.
It’ll be the first terminal to have innovative measures such as facial recognition, self-service check-in, self-bag tagging and automated baggage drop — allowing you more time to shop til you drop in this duty-free retail haven.
