The best things to do in Singapore with kids

Singapore is possibly the most family-friendly destination I have visited in Asia. A modern, clean and vibrant city with so much on offer for all ages. If you are planning to visit Singapore with kids, this guide will hopefully help you plan your trip.

We only visited Singapore on a long stopover for 5 days en route to Indonesia. However, I am definitely planning to go back to spend more time here.

Family things to do in Singapore

Night Safari

Grown ups and kids alike will love Singapore’s Night Safari. The world’s first nocturnal zoo and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Singapore. Enjoy a fun tram ride whilst keeping your eyes peeled, look out for all the nocturnal animals roaming in their natural habitats. You will travel through rainforest, savannah and jungle, many of the animals here are are threatened species.

Sentosa Island

This island hosts many attractions all in one place. We jumped on the cable car over there to make the journey fun. You can also get there via taxi and metro, but the cable crossing offers fantastic views of the city so is an experience in itself. Once you arrive on Sentosa, there are a number of different attractions to choose from. I have listed some of our favourites below, but check out the Sentosa website to see them all.

Deep dive into an undersea world. a great choice for getting out of the heat or rain.

4 different rides that bring the experience to life. The Haunted Mine Ride 4D, Extreme Log Ride. Shoot it out in Desperados, or get into the heart of the action with Journey 2: The Mysterious Island.

We love visiting trickeye museums, they offer a great break from the heat and a fun experience for most ages

Gardens By The Bay

Spend the day just exploring the amazing grounds. Make sure you pack some swimmers as there’s a great water park! One of the best attractions here is the light show, twice daily at 7:45pm and 8:45pm and a must see for anyone visiting Singapore.

National Gallery

This was one of our favourite places in Singapore. Hosting the most extensive collection of Singapore and Southeast Asian art. There are also regular things going on daily from children’s crafts to artists exhibiting their talents.

We especially loved the rooftop which offered amazing views of the city skyline. Open daily from 10 am – 7 pm you can pre-book your tickets online, general admission costs around $15-$20

Changi Airport

Making the journey a destination in itself. It is probably one of the most impressive airports I have ever experienced. Pass the layover time by riding a 4 story slide, visiting the world’s tallest indoor waterfall or exploring Jewel; an indoor garden and shopping experience.
