Skate-scoot your way round Singapore

Skate-scoot your way round Singapore

FORGET mildew-covered musty books. The National Heritage Board and the Singapore Heritage Society's new skate-scooting tour is the new fun way to discover Singapore.

Tony Tan, founder of The Betelbox Hostel and Tours, is an experienced guide who will whizz you off on a four-hour skate scooter tour of iconic monuments around Singapore's civic and historic district, where you will learn about the nation's journey from a British colony to nationhood.

Three times faster than walking, the scooters - which resemble skateboards with bicycle handlebars - require similar balancing skills you need for cycling.

First-time skate scooter, 73-year-old Dr Chiang Hai Ding, a former history professor, had no problems at all. "I think it would stimulate the old guys and the old gals," he quipped with a cheeky flash in his eye, before scooting off on his skate scooter again.

While skate scooting around Singapore is fun, safety should not be overlooked. University professor Kevin Tan tripped over when his wheel got caught in a grill on Cavenagh Bridge that left him with an angry-looking gash on his nose.

Skate scooters came under fire in 2000 for being dangerous, and a public menace.
