20 Fun Things To Do In Singapore With Kids

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.

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

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!!!

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 from 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.

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 skywalk over the gardens. Encounter climate-controlled conservatories and make your children learn about greenhouses.

    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?
