Singapore for Kids
Thinking of things to do in Singapore with the family? Here are some of our tips on how to enjoy this amazing city with children.
Our best and most important tip, when you’re travelling to Singapore with kids, is to plan ahead in order to save time and money. There are plenty of great fun attractions which suit the entire family. Some of them are nature-related, such as the Safari, Bird park, Botanic gardens and Forest Adventure. It’s amazing to discover how much nature is hiding in such a crowded city. Be aware though, that in peak season the lines for these attractions could be long, so pre-book your tickets online and save a lot of time. After all you did not spend so much money on flights and hotels to stand in lines all day!
Next lets talk about the urban attractions for kids (and grown ups) in the city – the Singapore Flyer, Universal Studios, Snow City, or Underwater World. Attending all these attractions could cost you the world, but there is a way around. Almost all of them are included in the Singapore pass, together with other attractions, a cruise and many types of guided tours. By booking the pass you could control your costs and plan in advance which attractions and tours you want to visit. More importantly, using the pass will help you to visit more attractions in the city than you may originally thought you would… you will see more and experience this city more with the rest of your family.

Wondering what else to do in the city with the kids? Our next tip is to leave the mainland and head to Sentosa Island, for a day of fun and relaxation. The little island is home for many great attractions and nice beaches, and even going to the island is an attraction by itself, as you hop there by a cable car… This is also the place where you’ll find one of the only two casinos in the city. Visit the Underwater World and Dolphin Lagoon, or visit the Universal Studios theme park – your children will love it!
Not every activity in Singapore should be a paid attraction. We truly recommend to take some time to tour the city and explore the mix of cultures. Kids will surely enjoy the special look and feel of quarters such as Little India, the Malay quarter of Kampong Glam and the little painted houses of Chinatown.
