A “salad bowl” rather than a melting pot of cultures, Singapore is a diverse city-state known as one of the world’s top destinations
Where to go in Singapore when travelling with young children
A fun water park filled with wet slides, timed water drops and sprinklers. Best of all - there are no admission charges! There are public change rooms and plenty of sitting areas nearby as well. This was recommended to us by our local friends who go there quite often with their 3 year old
Palawan Beach, Sentosa Island, Singapore
A bit pricey, but my son loves it. The view is great too and the cable car feels sturdy and safe.
Tower 2 Keppel Bay Tower, 1 Harbourfront Avenue, Singapore
There is a spectacular light show here at night that provides a great sensory experience. The light show is accompanied by various classic songs in different languages - such as Teresa Teng’s Moon Represent My Heart - and the lights are cut to the notes of each song. Great activity for the whole family to enjoy! Just make sure you check the time for the night show before you go as it only takes place at specific times (we went to the 8:45pm show)More details
The best zoo in Asia! With all of the most popular animals you’d expect to see (elephants, tigers, kangaroos, etc) along with some unexpected ones (like Dragons!). The place is quite big so there is a fair amount of walking involved. Regular tram rides are available to shuttle you to different locations across the zoo but they are not free (if u can get a pass that includes tram rides u might want to consider it if travelling with children). We didn’t get to see all of the animals in the zoo tho as our kids got too tired after a while - so we only enjoyed half of what the zoo had the offer. Two things to keep in mind if you’re planning to go: the main Asian restaurant in the park seems to fill up quite quickly at lunch time, so you might not be able to get a table there If u go too late (but there is a restaurant next door with plenty of tables but the food is not great). Also, the polar bear they had had passed away in 2018, so that exhibit is closed as of Feb 2019.More details
