Marina Bay

Marina Bay

Marina Bay Sands is the first things comes in your head when you hear the name singapore. Whether it’s the futuristic gardens with its ‘Supertrees’ or the big-domed conservatories, the Gardens by the Bay is a must-visit even if it isn’t your first time there. When you’re at marina bay with kids, take them to Far East Organisation Children’s Garden, you will find a water playground, tree houses and play equipment. On another note, you could always take a stroll on the high walkways of the OCBC Skyway and Sky Forest, which will give you stunning views of Singapore. Everything at Marina Bay is stroller friendly too! How to get there: Take a shuttle that would drive you between MRT Bayfront and the conservatories.

It’s a whopping 165-meters high and provides some very cool views of the city, and let’s face it, which kid wouldn’t mind getting on an observation wheel? It’s a rather quick yet fun journey, but a memorable one all the same for both adults and kids. ‘Journey of Dreams’ is a multimedia exhibit which tells of the history behind the Singapore Flyer.

Mint Museum Of Toys

There is an extensive collection of over 50,000 toys from over 40 countries dating from the mid-19th century stored right here in Singapore’s Mint Museum of Toys. Just imagine looking around a vast area dedicated to toys. Keep in mind that the toys are on display and they aren’t for playing with, so this is a good time to practice the ‘look, but don’t touch’ discipline… for both you and your kids! How to get there: Between City Hall and Bugis MRT station.

Wild Wild Wet

While this isn’t as big of a water park compared to Sentosa Island (which we will get to much later), this is most certainly a budget-friendly option.

You could easily spend the whole day here,If you get hungry, you can grab some food at the shopping complex nearby. How to get there: Walking distance from Pasir Ris MRT station.

Singapore Zoo

Singapore Zoo

Arguably one of the best zoos in the world, Singapore Zoo brings in a lot of tourists but it’s very much justified. The large zoo houses an amazing variety of animals like lions, giraffes, tiger, zebras, polar bears, African penguins and local ones like orangutans and Komodo dragons — all organised geographically so it’s fairly easy to know where you’re going … but do grab a map. The enclosures are well-designed and allow for maximum view enjoyment from different angles, and you can even get up close and personal with some of the animals. Be prepared to get swept away by all the action (like feeding some animals, for a fee) and get hypnotised for hours! The zoo is very kid-friendly,with lockers, baby changing rooms, strollers for rent, a water play area and a playground. How to get there: Take bus 138 from Ang Mo Kio MRT station, or grab a cab.

Canopy Park

Airports are no longer a droll situation, especially Jewel Changi. Take your kids to the indoor wonderland here, where they have fun with mazes, bounce on nets, slide down art sculptures and admire the stunning views from a glass bridge. Sure, there are other retail and dining options to be done here, but we all know that the true heroes are the seven different attractive and creative gardens. It might also be a good idea to take them here before a flight out so that they can snooze throughout the journey, and give you some quiet time!
