Bollywood Adventures in Singapore
Escape from the everyday and head to the Kranji countryside this National Day weekend, thanks to Bollywood Adventures

As parents, we’re no strangers to being permanently rushed off our feet. We’re constantly juggling work, school runs, sports clubs all while trying to maintain a healthy work-life balance. So what do you do as a family in Singapore when you need to unwind and take things down a notch? You go to the countryside. Yep. The countryside does actually exist here on the Little Red Dot, and this National Day weekend it’s the perfect pitstop to keep the fam bam entertained. Your destination? Bollywood Veggies! 

What is Bollywood Adventures?

Bollywood Veggies farm

Get your nature fix by visiting the on-site farm, Bollywood Veggies.

Founded in 2018 by globetrotter, author and activist Manda Foo, Bollywood Adventures aims to connect a nation of urbanites (that’s you) to farm and rural experiences all over Singapore. It provides tours, activities and experiences for people of all ages to get closer to Mother Nature through guided farm tours, learning about crops, farm-to-table cooking classes and more. Many of its programs happen at Bollywood Veggies, one of our fave family-friendly farms to visit on the island. Once you’re there, you’ll find wild chickens, a real paddy field and some of the yummiest banana bread in Singapore at the Poison Ivy bistro!
