Description:

It’s like being Dora The Explorer, just with a more high-tech map – your smartphone. Geocaching is a real life treasure hunt, where you download a Geocaching app and select a cache to find with the given GPS coordinates and clues.

It’s easy to get to the various locations, but searching for the cache itself can be quite a challenge. It could be anywhere – on a tree, under a rock, buried in a hole even. Once you’ve found the cache, you sign the logbook inside as a mark of your achievement and you might even be rewarded with a small token hidden inside.

Of course, don’t expect to find a chest full of gold coins – but you’ll get to explore parts of Singapore you never knew existed!

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunting game played throughout the world by adventure seekers. The basic idea is to locate hidden containers, called geocaches, outdoors and then share your experiences online.
