Singapore may be known for its world-class restaurants and bars, but it also boasts some great spots for outdoor picnics. But no picnic is complete without the right gear, and the most important one is a picnic mat or blanket.

So in this article, we have listed and reviewed the best picnic mats in Singapore. Whether you’re just looking for a sheet for yourself and your partner or the whole family or group of friends, you’ll find plenty of variety. Of course, the more people in your picnic, the larger the mat or sheet you’d need.

Things to Consider When Buying a Picnic Mat
To help you make your decision quick and easy, here are some key points to keep in mind when buying a mat for outdoor picnics:

The most important thing is the material of the mat. These mats or blankets are typically made of synthetic materials like polyester or polyurethane. However, some may be more durable than others.

Aside from the material, also pay attention to the thickness of the mat. Does it have some kind of padding or filling? If you want more comfort, you want it to be slightly padded to provide some support. This is all the more relevant for people with hip or lower back pain who may find sitting on the ground uncomfortable.

Water Resistance
It should be waterproof, or at least water-resistant, to ensure protection from wet ground or grass. This would ensure that you don’t feel uncomfortable while sitting on a damp surface. It also guarantees that the mat won’t get damaged by water or moisture.

The picnic sheet should be easy to fold and carry. Luckily, most of these mats are designed to fold seamlessly, with built-in carry handles. All you need to do is fold it, roll it, and use the straps to tie it and carry it. Ideally, it should take less space once folded all the way. This way, you can easily fit it in a backpack.

As there are several size options for most picnic mats, you have to choose according to the number of people who will be lounging on the mat. A small mat, say 140 cm in length, may be sufficient for one or two people. However, for three people or more, you need a mat that’s at least 200 cm in length and 150 cm in width.

Now that you know what to look for when buying a picnic mat, here are our top picks for the 5 best picnic mats in Singapore [2024 review].
