Singapore has quickly become one of the most popular family-friendly destinations in Asia.
Home to beaches, rainforests, rich culture and adventure playgrounds, there is no shortage of fantastic things to do here. Whether you are stopping over for a few days or are here for a family holiday, when it comes to entertainment, Singapore has got you covered.
Here are 8 unique places to visit in Singapore with your kids.
1. Interactive kid city at KidZania
What do you want to be when you grow up? A policeman, footballer, model? At KidZania Singapore, you can be whatever you want to be! This lifelike city has been scaled down to size, allowing your children the chance to role-play their future aspirations. It is also the first in the world to house a full-wing fuselage of a Boeing 737. Just like real life, kids can earn money for the roles they play, which they can spend or save.
2. Have breakfast with an orangutan
While on safari at the Singapore Zoo, take advantage of the only place in the world where you can get up close and personal with the orangutans. Don’t forget the photo-op!
Voted the world’s best rainforest zoo, the viewer’s experience here is different, as the animal enclosures have been created to resemble their life in the wild. For the little ones, join the Singapore Zoo’s Kidzranger Tour which turns children into zookeepers and gives them special access to areas that are otherwise closed to public.
3. Bring your imagination to life at Mosh
Located on Sentosa Island next to Palawan Beach, this digital interactive theme park allows kids to let their imagination run wild and bring their artwork to life. With 5 attractions to choose from, you get to create and interact with technology…and it even responds back.
4. Sleep with the fishes
Wake up underwater with your own personal view of fish, sharks and rays in the ocean suites at Resorts World on Sentosa Island. A floor-to-ceiling viewing gallery allows you to peer directly into the largest exhibit at the S.E.A. Aquarium. With more than 100,000 marine animals, you can get up close with your personal front-row view, and all in the comfort of your own room.
5. Drive into the water with DUCKtours
Kids will love this hour-long land-sea tour. The remodelled WWII vehicle is painted like a duck, rides like a bus and drives right into the water with a splash!
Get a sneak peek into some of Singapore’s favourite attractions that you’d most like to visit, and catch the fantastic city views from the water. When the tour is ending, the bus-boat drives its passengers back onto dry land.
6. Go behind the scenes at Universal Studios Singapore
Voted the Number 1 amusement park in Asia, there are 7 different themed zones to explore. You can venture into the Lost World for thrill seeking rollercoasters, Madagascar to meet some of your favourite characters, Far Far Away for a 4D experience, and Hollywood to see the famous Walk of Fame. The fun never stops, and there is excitement provided for all ages.
7. Cool off at Adventure Cove Waterpark
Year-round, Singapore hovers between 25–32 degrees Celsius, so water-based activities are always a good idea. Enjoy the wave pool, ride waterslides, or simply relax and let the current take you down Adventure River, passing through 14 stunning scenes including a grotto inhabited by whimsical sea creatures.
Whatever you fancy, there are multiple zones to choose from and fun for all ages. Get your adrenaline pumping on adventure slides, including racing slides, tube slides and spiral funnel slides, or slow down and snorkel with the wildlife in rainbow reef. You can even pet the rays of Ray Bay.
8. Test your limits at The Karting Arena
Singapore is home to the world’s first night race, and while not everyone can race around the streets, you can head to The Karting Arena for a taste of what it is like to speed down the tarmac. It’s Singapore’s first electric karting track, which means a lot more torque and pick-up! Perfect for getting your adrenaline going, especially with some friendly family competition with the older kids!
