Singapore is the ultimate place whether you are going on a family vacation, a trip with friends, or solo exploration. With its unique culture, skyscrapers with peculiar designs, modern architecture, and efficient public transport scheme, it’s one of the best places for families. I went there alone, with my friends, with my family, with my husband, and with my kids.
I have traveled to Singapore more than 10 times in the past 8 years – that’s how much I love the country. And I am sure I will visit again in the future.

Best & Fun Vacation Ideas for Families
Things To Consider When Choosing Your Next Family Vacation Destination
20 fun things to do in Singapore with kids:
1. Universal Studios Singapore
Who doesn’t love Universal Studios? I’ve been there 4 times already and I never get tired of it! It is a place where all age groups in the family will enjoy. There are 7 zones: Madagascar, Jurassic Park, Far Far Away, Egypt, Sci-Fi, Transformers, and Hollywood.
2. Adventure Cove Waterpark
Bring your kids to this water park where they can enjoy high-speed water slides plus snorkel with marine life! They have Dueling Racer, Pipeline Plunge, Riptide Rocket, Spiral Washout, Tidal Twister, Whirlpool Washout. How do they sound? Fun and daring! They have more so check them out.
3. Singapore Flyer
The Singapore Flyer takes you on a 30-minute ride. You see the amazing Singapore skyline from above and other attractions like Gardens by the Bay and Marina Bay Sands from a different angle. Whether you go at daytime or nighttime, both views are breathtaking. It is not too fast and not too slow, enough for you to take lots of photos.
4. Singapore Cable Car
Considered as one of the most sophisticated cable car systems in Asia, it is the first aerial ropeway in the world to span a harbor connecting Mainland Singapore to Sentosa Island. Enjoy the picturesque view of Singapore in a cable car while passing through the different landscapes, beaches, attractions, and theme parks.
5. Singapore Zoo
This is a fun and educational activity for the kids. My son had a great time identifying animals. A little unfortunate event where I got allergies when I used one of their restrooms. Maybe I touched something I am unknowingly allergic to, my hand was swelling. Their first aid team responded quickly and even contacted me the next day to know how I was doing.
6. Mega Adventure Park
Here’s another attraction for all ages – the Mega Adventure. It comprises of MegaZip, MegaClimb, MegaJump, Mega Wall, and MegaBounce. Your family will surely have a blast!
7. Singapore Night Safari
Known as the first nocturnal zoo in the world, it has become a popular tourist attraction that houses thousands of animals. You can walk or ride a tram to explore the area. Don’t miss the Creatures of The Night Show presented by the animals.
8. Jurong Bird Park
Asia’s largest bird park, Jurong Bird Park, houses more than 3 thousand birds of over 400 species. Hang out and have a photo with these birds!!!
9. Butterfly Park & Insect Kingdom
Let’s appreciate the beauty of Mother Nature through these butterflies and insects. Nature lovers and families will definitely enjoy this interactive experience.

10. KidZania Singapore
Imagine a small size city for kids – that’s what KidZania looks like. They have branches all over the world. KidZania Singapore is an interactive indoor theme park designed for kids to learn through role-playing. This is suitable for children age 4 years old. I wanted to come here before, but my son was still a little bit young then. He might not fully appreciate it, and we won’t get our money’s worth.

11. Sentosa 4D Adventureland
How about a 4D experience? Sentosa 4D Adventureland is a high-tech interactive entertainment zone where you can experience 4D movies, virtual roller coaster, and interactive shoot-out game!
12. Singapore Discovery Centre
Education and entertainment in one, learn more about the history of Singapore, the milestone of events, and insights on the future.
13. Skyline Luge Sentosa
Thrill-seekers, this is for you! Try the Skyline Luge! It is a unique wheeled gravity ride that you can whizz down the track. It has fun written all over it!
14. S.E.A. Aquarium
Used to be the world’s largest aquarium in 2013, it is home to a hundred thousands marine animals of over 1000 species in 50 habitats. This world-class aquarium has Ocean Suite connected to it, and you can apply to be a PADI certified diver.
15. River Safari
Who wants to see a panda? If yes, then head on to River Safari. It is the first and only river-themed wildlife park in Asia. It has 400 plant species and 260 animal species.
16. ArtScience Museum
The world’s first ArtScience museum features 21 gallery spaces displaying touring exhibitions from art and science, media and technology, and design and architecture motifs curated by other museums. It will definitely bring a different concept to museum lovers for sure.
17. Singapore Botanic Gardens
If you want a little downtime and a slow walk, then this is a perfect place for you. The Botanic Gardens is the first and only tropical botanic garden on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List.
18. Segway Tour
Another way to see the city is by the Segway Tour. You will need to fill out papers and undergo training. The minimum age for this tour is 15 years old. This has mixed positive and negative reviews. It is fun, but because of the 30-minute time limit, it is not enough. Make sure you read all the fine details before booking.
19. Gardens by the Bay
Marina Bay is a place that is bound to fascinate you with its modern style architectures. The night there is nothing short of magical. You can experience a skywalk over the gardens. Encounter climate-controlled conservatories and make your children learn about greenhouses.
20. National Museum of Singapore
If you want to know more about the history of Singapore, head to the National Museum. It is the oldest museum in Singapore and it contains a wide array of exhibits and artifacts.
On a final note…
There is no doubt that Singapore should be in your tours list of the year with so many sites that can be part of your itinerary. The best part about Singapore is that most of the spots can be enjoyed by all age groups which makes it a perfect place for family vacations.

Amazing! Gardens by the bay is spectacular.
This a fabulous list on things to do, so often when i arrive somewhere I get analysis paralysis on what to do when I am there. If anyone is visiting Singapore they should check out this list and will be on their way to a good time! I was surprise by so many unique art features that are around to see, I really need to start looking for more art places to visit when out and about.
I think a night safari sounds incredible. is it really at night? Or, just night animals you see during the day?
Even if I’m not a kid anymore, i would still vert much enjoy those places. I didn’t know that there were so many things to do in singapore. Ill make sure to check out most of these when i get there.
