SINGAPORE

Climb The Super Trees

Why have a tree, when you can have a super tree! Gardens By The Bay features an exhilarating arbour that offers shade during the day and at night, it turns into a light show. And if that’s not enough, one of these vertical gardens plays host to a restaurant that’s hidden within its canopy.

Surf In The Desert

Who says that you can’t catch a wave when you’re in the desert? Wadi Adventure in Al Ain features the largest surf pool in the world. Beginners can start by testing their balance on a few small rolling waves while professions can practise their favourite tricks on three metre high surf.

NEW YORK

Swim In A Floating Pool

A dip in the Hudson wouldn’t be everyone’s idea of a great time, but the team behind +Pool is about to change all that. The tech geeks are set to float two Olympic-sized swimming pools in the Hudson, which contain a filtration device that leaves you practising your butterfly in sparkling, clear water. Expected to launch soon.

LOS ANGELES

Ride A Glass Slide

Adrenalin addicts will go weak at the knees once they take a look at the new Sky Slide on 70th floor of the OUE Skyspace LA. Los Angeles’ tallest open air observation deck gives visitors the chance to ride in a glass slide 1,000 feet above the ground on the outside of the building. Just remember to keep your eyes open when you race to the 69th floor.
