Featured Speaker: Daniel Goh

Daniel's love for trekking has taken him all over the world - 26 countries in all - even once summiting the 6,273m high Mount Pacharmo in Nepal! A Singaporean by birth, his intrepid travels landed him close to the Rocky Mountains in Canada. It is from this base that he offers guided tours for 3PlayGrounds throughout North and South America. Daniel passion for travel and for nature is infectious and those who travel with him have the opportunity to experience his unique perspective.

What adventure awaits you in The Canadian Rockies?

At this talk, Daniel will share his own experiences exploring the magnificent Canadian Rockies, as well as discuss some of the exciting adventures that await, such as white water rafting, horseback riding, panoramic helicopter rides and glacier walks.

Featured Speaker: Chong Lee Ling

Lee Ling picked up a second-hand torn Atlas when she was 7 years old. She flipped it every day and wondered what was happening in the world and to the people. She wondered why straight lines can be drawn on the map and then called country. This curiosity of the world and the people have led her to 6 continents 54 countries and still counting. Also, she tend not to believe how mass media has portrayed the world to be a dangerous place. She thinks if so, humans would have extinct by now. After 17 years in Citibank, she decided to leave the corporate world for good and founded 3PlayGrounds with Georgina and Britta.

Featured destination: Africa

At this talk, Lee Ling will share experiences from her trips to Kenya, Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, and South Africa. She will also talk about upcoming 3PlayGrounds trips to the African Continent and her life humbling experience from the people and animals in Africa. This was how she felt after her Africa trip "I didn't realize how backward our modern societies were till my Africa trip." Please RSVP to this event and find out why she felt the way it was. It gave her a new perspective in life and she hopes to inspire all of us to learn more about Africa.

  • I had a amazing trip with a group of friendly and warm tour mates. Carly was such an assuring tour leader. Excellent and safe Vietnamese driver, Jerry. well spoken English Vietnamese guide Tommy. I enjoyed myself very much and look forward for another trip!

  • Excellent short trip with beautiful verdant countryside and charming local tribal people not corrupted by tourism yet . Be prepared for long drive on narrow winding mountain roads.

Everyone laughed and enjoyed the hols as if we have known each other all our lives instead of meeting for the first time ! Everyone kept their cool when faced with an unforseen delay . The scenery at Ha Giang is simply superb . There are so many small towns within the mountains with so many minority races living together . Their costumes are so colourful and the ladies' headgears are so lovely to gawk at . If I could , I would love to go again . Highly recommended for gungho people with "throw everything to the wind" attitude . Fantastic local guide and driver (Tom & Jerry) and pats on the back for Carly (Singapore guide) too . Thanks .........rosse and raymond . Read less

  • Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. ... Read more Georgina was great in: 1) giving reminders so that people can un-RSVP for others on wait list to get a spot. 2) giving clear instructions, photos, links on how to get to the meeting point, 3)explaining why everyone had to be on time and what the program is expected to be and when it might end. Late evening slot was a good idea as we got to see the night installations at The PathFinder portion, but food stalls already closed upon exit. There are toilets inside the exhibit in Fort Canning Center itself. Cleaner than the mobile toilets outside. Thank you for helping to get us tickets when it is so difficult to do so. Read less

  • My wife, son and I never regret of signing up this trip. My 8 year old son enjoyed the walk on the rocky beach. Best moment of the walk was that we came closed to the corals, crabs ???? and ???? shrimps. Thank you threeplaygrounds!
