If you’re like me, travelling with kids isn’t always the easiest thing to do. However, it can be a lot of fun when you get to see new places and experience new things. If you’re planning a trip to Singapore with your family, take some time to check out these amazing sights!
Singapore Botanic Garden.
The Singapore Botanic Garden is a 17-hectare garden in the central region of Singapore, and it’s home to over 8,000 species of plants. The garden was founded by Sir Stamford Raffles in 1822 and has been open for over 200 years now!
It’s free to enter the botanic garden, but you can pay an additional fee to enter areas like the National Orchid Garden and the Tropical Flower Dome. Once inside the gates, you’ll find beautiful gardens full of flowers and trees everywhere you look. If you have time while visiting this park, check out their lovely Butterfly Park, which includes over 100 types of butterflies spread across several habitats, including rainforests and meadows! Also, don’t forget about their gift shop where there are lots of unique items available, such as sculptures made entirely out of leaves—perfect for kids who love nature crafts!
Gardens by the Bay.
Gardens by the Bay is a good place to visit if you have kids who love nature and plants. There are gardens such as the Cloud Forest, Flower Dome and Supertree Grove that showcase different trees and flowers from around the world. There are even more attractions for children, such as an indoor playground called Kidzania Singapore where they can pretend to be pilots or doctors in an airport setting or perform surgery in a hospital ward. A VR experience also lets you fly over Singapore at night while taking photos!
There are many restaurants at Gardens by the Bay too which serve delicious food and other things like ice cream cones if your kids want them (but don’t forget the sunscreen!). You can also buy souvenirs like postcards or books about this beautiful garden via their gift shop, so make sure not to miss out on those!
The Singapore Zoo.
The Singapore Zoo is a great place to take kids to see animals. It’s in the western part of Singapore, and it has a wide variety of animals. The zoo has many attractions and restaurants, so you can enjoy your time there with your family.
The zoo has 2,000 animals on display in its 25 acres of beautifully landscaped gardens and parkland. There are also rides like the Sky Safari cable car that takes visitors up over 200 feet in the air for an amazing view of the whole zoo! You’ll also find yourself face-to-face with penguins and great apes at Orangutan Island – a must-see attraction where you can even get up close to these incredible creatures (but don’t forget about all the other animals too!).
Adventure Cove Waterpark™.
Adventure Cove Waterpark™ is the go-to destination for Singaporean families looking to cool off in the sun. With four swimming pools, it has something for everyone, from a lazy river and wave pool to children’s play areas and surf simulator water rides. It also boasts several thrilling slides, including a water roller coaster, which travels up and down along its own track while riders are plunged into an artificial river; or the Storm Blaster (similar to one of our favourites at Disney World), where you sit on an inflatable tube that shoots you down three different slides with varying degrees of intensity.
When visiting Singapore with your kids, this is definitely one place you’ll want to make sure they visit!
Maritime Experiential Museum.
The Maritime Experiential Museum is an interactive museum that features exhibits designed to educate visitors on the importance of water and its environment. There are a variety of exhibits such as a water playground, which is a giant pool where you can play with water jets, fountains, and slides; there’s also an exhibit about marine life in Singapore.
The best way to get here is by MRT via the Circle Line or Downtown Line until Chinatown Station (exit B) then walk for five minutes along Neil Road towards Telok Ayer Street. The museum opens from 10 am–7 pm daily except on Mondays when it closes at 6 pm.
Universal Studios Singapore®.
Universal Studios Singapore® is a theme park based on the popular Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Studios Florida. It is on Resorts World Sentosa in Singapore.
The park has an array of attractions that include 4D thrill rides, live shows and movie-themed areas such as New York City, San Francisco and Ancient Egypt. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ is also part of this amazing attraction!
If your family wants to see what life was like before electricity, then head over to Jurassic Park: The Ride, where you can experience being chased by dinosaurs (in a controlled environment)./
Singapore Cable Car Sky Dining @ Mount Faber Line.
Located at Mount Faber Line is Singapore’s first revolving restaurant, Singapore Cable Car Sky Dining. This place serves Western cuisine with a breathtaking view of the city skyline and sea. If you love seafood and want to enjoy some good food while being in one of the best spots in Singapore, then this is definitely a place to visit.
It is open every day from 5 p.m.-10 p.m., but if you want to watch the sunset or sunrise, it would be better if you went there at 4:30 p.m., before sunset starts or after sunrise ends so that your photos will look extra beautiful!
You can get there by taking MRT (Mass Rapid Transport) train from Tanjong Pagar station or Vivo City Station until Harbourfront Station and then take Bus Service 143/144/145/147/148/149/143M or shuttle bus service 124 and go down at Mount Faber Terminal B1 until reaching Mount Faber Line Stage 1 Terminal which will be connected to menu counter where you’re going for dinner! You may also choose cable car rides instead of bus services since cable cars provide better views than buses do!
Chinatown Food Street and Sri Mariamman Temple.
Chinatown Food Street is a great place to explore Singaporean culture and cuisine. At the heart of Singapore’s Chinatown, you can find local restaurants serving dishes from all over Asia. The best part? You don’t need to venture too far outside these streets to enjoy some of the most authentic food in town! There are also plenty of shops selling traditional souvenirs and more modern ones like clothes and toys for kids (which makes it easy for them to shop while you eat). Be sure not to miss out on trying their famous chilli crab!
Sri Mariamman Temple is a Hindu temple built in 1827 that serves as one of the oldest temples in Singapore today. This place may seem quiet at first glance, but walking around its perimeter reveals an incredible array of historical statues—all beautifully decorated according to Hindu custom—that tell stories about gods and goddesses from different parts of India.
Trick Eye Museum and Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks, Sentosa.
They divide the museum into six zones that showcase different themes, from dinosaurs to the wild west. There are also interactive exhibits such as the UV laser maze, 3D photo booths and face painting. For a fun experience that will make your kids feel like a star, be sure to visit their special exhibition hall where you can take photos in front of Hollywood sets.
For those looking for something more challenging than a wax museum (the whole point of visiting one), there’s Laser Quest Asia which features four themed areas with various levels of difficulty: Ice Station Zero (for beginners), The Village (for intermediate players), Moonbase Alpha (for advanced players) or Jungle Ruins (for experts). You’ll get to shoot lasers at friends and foes while dodging their attacks at high speeds across these multi-level arenas.
In addition, if you want your family picture taken together with characters from famous movies such as Harry Potter, Star Wars and Frozen, then this option is available through Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks photo wall! This photo wall allows you unlimited poses with over 200 handcrafted figures, including superheroes like Captain America and Wonder Woman along with villains like Darth Vader & Stormtroopers.”
