Our options for outdoor activities in Singapore may be slightly limited due to our land space, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't try to have a good time outside regardless. Take for example a picnic. It's an underrated way to enjoy a day out, combining two of our favourite things to do: Eating, and spending time with loved ones. 

If we choose the right location, such as under the shaded canopy of Fort Canning Park or the breezy Marina Barrage with a city view, we might even feel like we're overseas.

What do you need for a picnic day out in Singapore? Let this checklist help you.
