There isn't much to do in such a small city like ours. Most weekends are spent either partying and drinking, or having supper at your favourite Prata place. It can be tiresome to search for unique experiences that will leave a lasting impression on you and your friends.

Not to worry, we've found six hangout spots that you can bring your friends and family to spice up your weekends.

1. Catch some vintage vibes at Kombi Rocks Diner

As you've already guessed, Kombi Rocks is a diner named after one of the most iconic hipster-mobiles of all time - the Volkswagen Kombi. Enjoy a wide variety of Teochew-Thai fusion dishes while soaking up the ambience of old school memorabilia and a lineup of restored vintage VW Kombis.

3. Get down and dirty at Bollywood Veggies

You'd think a tiny island wouldn't have any farms left in this day and age. But you'd be wrong. Bollywood Veggies is a 10-acre organic farm with a culinary school and museum located in the wild west of Singapore. Its Poison Ivy bistro serves up local and fusion cuisine made with locally-farmed organic produce while the farm itself offers tours and fun-filled activities for those who don't mind getting their hands dirty.

Address: 100 Neo Tiew Road, Singapore (719026)
Operating hours: Wednesdays to Fridays from 8:00am to 5:30pm, Saturdays, Sundays and Public Holidays from 8:00am to 6:30pm, Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays except on Public Holidays

Drinking
4. Grab a cold one at Handlebar

It doesn't matter whether you're a biker or not, a trip to Handlebar is guaranteed to make you fall in love with these two-wheeled machines. Grab a cold one and immerse yourself in the camaraderie, brotherhood and badassery that can otherwise only be found in Sons of Anarchy. Just be sure to keep an eye on your alcohol intake and drink responsibly.

Address: 10 Lock Road Singapore (108938)
Operating hours: Tuesdays to Thursdays and Sundays from 12:00pm to 12:00am, Fridays from 12:00pm to 1:00am, Saturdays from 12:00pm to 2:00am, Closed on Mondays

5. Experience the kampung life at Farmart Centre

Getting bored of your usual hawker haunts like Bedok 85, Newton Circus or Adam Road Food Centre? You might want to check out Farmart, which serves up local delicacies such as satay, BBQ seafood and tze char dishes. It's also the place to go if you want to get up close and personal with goats, rabbits and other farm critters. Farm tours have separate operating hours from the food outlets so it's best to check ahead of schedule.

Address: 67 Sungei Tengah Road, Singapore (699008)
Operating hours: Sundays to Thursdays from 10:00am to 10:00pm, Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00am to 12:00am
Website: farmart.com.sg
Prawing
6. Prawn and pool at Punggol

Prawning, pool, and much more await you in Punggol. Have dinner at a variety of restaurants and bars, then head over to Hai Bin, where you can put your prawning skills to the test and barbeque your catch once you're done. If prawning isn't your cup of tea, there's also a pool and billiards room next door. The container park has separate operating hours from Hai Bin Prawning so we recommend doing a bit of homework before heading down.

Address: 6 Tebing Lane #01-04, Singapore (828835)
Operating hours: Open 24/7, including Public Holidays
