Fun Things to do in Singapore with Family
Singapore is an ideal destination for a family trip in summer vacations!
Being one of the most advanced countries in the world and being able to preserve its pristine nature and rich history, there is something for everyone visiting this exotic travel destination.
Whether you are looking for historical places, museums, tourist attractions, or local culture, Singapore has a lot (literally) to offer for an ideal family vacation.
Following is a list of some of the most fun things to do in Singapore when traveling with family:
Discover the museums
Singapore has a bevy of museums (at least 50). Battlebox Museum and The Changi Museum will take you back to the times of the 2nd World War. A mere walk around The National Museum will help you find a wealth of knowledge about Singapore's rich and colorful history. Visit Singapore Art Museum, National Gallery Singapore, and Ode to Art. You will get to see some masterpieces in the form of contemporary art. To learn more about the various ethnicities based in Singapore, there are museums dedicated to Indian, Chinese, and Malaysian culture.
Hang around at the southernmost point of Continental Asia
A suspension bridge on Palawan Beach can take you to the southernmost point of Continental Asia. From here, you can get a never-ending view of the South China Sea. Let the refreshing seas breeze and the exquisite scenery wave a magical spell on your mind and body.
Explore the natural wonders
The National Orchid Garden which is a botanical garden houses a variety of gorgeous trees with beautiful flowers. The entire garden is dotted with a myriad of orchids which are named after some eminent personalities who have visited the garden. Gardens by the Bay is a little paradise in Singapore. The conservatories promise a delightful experience, regardless of the visitor's age. There is a majestic waterfall, a cloud forest which showcases trees and plants from across the globe, a flower dome, and a supertree grove. Even if the kids in your family are too young to understand, they are bound to love the light and sound show. You and your family can easily spend a day here.
Indulge in scrumptious street food
Being a mixing bowl of several cultures and ethnicities, Singapore offers a variety of cuisines to choose from. In fact, it is nearly impossible to not find something that you like to eat. Being a highly developed country, one can rest assured about the quality of the food sold in the streets.
There are not many places in the world where you families can seek thrill without having to worry about their safety. There is a bevy of thrill rides that can be experienced in Singapore. There is Adventure Cove Water Park which has thrilling slides, there is AJ Hackett in Sentosa which offers Bungee Jumping that will pump your adrenaline, and there is Ola Beach Club where you can try Flyboarding. You can also experience forest adventure in the form of Zip-lining, ATV ride, and Flying Fox.
Experience the world of movies
Only in Singapore can you find the best movie theme park in Asia. Yes, I am referring to the Universal Studios in Singapore. With seven themed sections, the Universal Studios in Singapore features rides and shows based on Transformers, The Mummy, Madagascar, Jurassic Park, etc.
Get Amazed at the Marina Bay
Witness Singapore's sublime skyline, take a selfie with the Merlion and relax by submerging into the Infinity Pool, at Marina Bay. Whether you visit this most iconic Place of Interest in Singapore during the day or in the night, fun for your entire family is guaranteed. There are several live shows in and around the place, many of which can be attended for free. If you are visiting after dawn, make sure to watch the spectacular light show.
Explore the country's ethnic enclaves on foot
Singapore is a mixing bowl of different ethnicities and cultures. Ditch vehicles and explore the country's magnificent enclaves on foot. From Chinatown to Little India, every ethnicity from South and Southeast Asia can found here. In addition to that, you and your family will be amazed to see how lively and energetic Singapore is.
Get lost in one of the best Airports in the World
Being centrally located in Southeast Asia and easily accessible through the land, air, and sea, Singapore is a travel hub. But what makes it really special is its outrageously cool Changi Airport. It seems like the airport has been designed to make weary travelers happy. Whether you are traveling with kids or with senior citizens, the airport has so much for everyone. The social tree will make you feel like a celebrity, the garden will keep you close to nature and make you feel relaxed. There are also free movie theatres inside the airport. But the one that will peak your senses is the slide. Located at Terminal 3, there is a 12-metre high slide in which you can slide @ 6 metre per second.
Shop till you drop
Singapore's shopping scene is shrewdly designed to attract shopaholics. The shopping centres in City Hall and Orchard Road primarily attract tourists. The annual Great Shopping Sale in Singapore allures people from across the region where one can buy things at a great price. Visitors can also get back the VAT amount they had initially paid for certain products.
Rejuvenate at Sentosa
Sentosa is every kid's dream destination. The island of Sentosa will make you feel like you are Alice in Wonderland. One day is too less to spend here. There is so much to see and experience here. From Madame Tussaud's wax museum where you can see wax statues of your favorite celebrities to Crane Dance which showcases a magical love story of two cranes.
Adventure for Kids
Singapore entices kids like no other place on the planet. Kids can try the uber cool flying trapeze that we have all seen at circuses, experience what is it like to skydive at an indoor wind tunnel, bounce on a gigantic trampoline, surf at an indoor water park, and climb artificial rocks.
Beat the Heat
Being a country with relatively hot climate, there is no better way to escape the heat than by visiting the Singapore Snow City. The artificial snow world promises a chilly winter where one can build a snowman, experiment with liquid nitrogen, stay inside an igloo, and tube down icy slopes.
Entertainment in the form of indoor games
Singapore is one of the best places in the world to play entertaining indoor games. It is really impossible for a family to not enjoy themselves in this euphoric country. Virtual Room Singapore and Zero Latency allows you to play advanced virtual games, Flight Simulator gives you the experience of how it is like to fly an aeroplane, Laser OPS is where you can play next-generation Laser Tag, Bubble Bump and Bubble Soccer offers a type of football in which the players wear a zorb like bubble, and Unravel offers you games related to puzzles and espionage.
Note: While there are so many attractions in Singapore, there are a few which should be shut down, including the S.E.A Aquarium and the Dolphin Island which holds captivated wild marine creatures such as Dolphins.
