For kids, Singapore offers cool entertainment destinations, quirky shopping streets, and range of wildlife attractions. It’s all here for the taking on a holiday in Singapore.

Celebrations in Singapore

Begin with breakfast at Ya Kun Kaya Toast, for a classic Singaporean start to your day. Then hop in a taxi headed for MacRitchie Reservoir. The treetop walk through mature secondary forest isn’t the toughest of hikes you’ll ever take on, but you will need to be reasonably fit. You might even be lucky enough to spot monkeys playing in the trees. For show-stopping views, don’t turn back until you reach the suspension bridge. Walking shoes, mozzie repellent and plenty of water are essential. End your day with a traditional dinner at Lau Pa Sat.

Spend a day exploring Singapore’s impressive collection of museums, beginning at the Singapore National Museum. You’ll get a fascinating insight into how it all began as well as the diverse culture and sense of national pride. Visit the Asian Civilisations Museum on the banks of the Singapore River to see some incredible artefacts, from Buddha Bodhisattva statues to daggers and drums, which tell the story of Singapore’s ancestral heritage. Bringing your museum day bang up to date, the Singapore Art Museum exhibits eye-catching examples of modern Singaporean and Asian art.

Get your bearings in bustling Chinatown. Must-visit spots include the opulent Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and the Chinatown Heritage Centre, which gives you a glimpse into the area’s colourful past. For perfect chicken rice at lunchtime, make your way to Ah Tai in Maxwell Hawker Centre. This afternoon, take a bumboat tour of the Singapore River. Hop ashore at Merlion Park, and stroll along the Esplanade for some great photo opportunities of the DNA-shaped Double Helix Bridge and the show-stealing Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Spend your evening exploring the quirky shops and restaurants in Ann Siang Hill.

Featuring on UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites, the Singapore Botanic Gardens are a spectacular example of nature in perfectly manicured form. Follow your nose to the Aroma Garden to breathe in heady scents reminiscent of sumptuous spa treatments. The Ginger Garden is home to Halia – an idyllic spot for a light lunch and a refreshing ice tea. Visit the National Orchid Garden to see the blooming collection of VIP hybrid orchids created for the likes of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Ban Ki-Moon.

While away a few hours on Haji Lane in Kampong Glam, wandering along the row of quirky boutiques and walls adorned with bright and bold street art. Then make your way to Books Actually in Tiong Bahru to breathe in that unmistakable aroma of old books. When you’ve found your literary gem, wander over to 40 Hands to peruse the pages with what is said by many to be the best cup of coffee in Singapore. If you’re feeling the need for a sugar fix, something from Plain Vanilla’s superior collection of cupcakes should do the trick.

Designed to be as close to the real thing as possible, habitats at the carefully thought out Singapore Zoo include African savannah grasslands and rugged canyons replicating the Great Rift Valley. View the willowy giraffes from an elevated platform. See water-dwelling animals like pygmy hippos and otters from underwater galleries. And enjoy breakfast with free-roaming orang-utans. For more animal adventures, purchase the three-park ticket for access to Singapore’s Night Safari and River Safari too. The Night Safari lets you get up close and personal with the night owls of the animal kingdom, while the highlight of the River Safari is the Giant Panda Forest.

Bumboats from Changi ferry terminal stand ready to whisk you away to the nearby island of Pulau Ubin. The individual ticket price is just a few dollars, and you can pay for the empty spaces on the boat if you don’t want to hang about for the boat to fill up. Soak up the serenity of this relatively unspoilt natural landscape – a far cry from the gleaming skyscrapers of the CBD – and make Chek Jawa your priority destination. Rent a bike from one of the shacks near the ferry terminal to get to this 100-hectare wetland that’s home to a wide variety of wildlife.

After a late breakfast at Singapore Food Trail, make your way to the Gardens by the Bay. Wander the OCBC Skyway, which connects two of the giant, leafy trellises, for an unbeatable vantage point over the bay and the city. Don’t miss the giant greenhouses – the Cloud Forest and the Flower Dome. Then find yourself a comfy spot beneath the Supertrees at twilight, and prepare to be wowed by the nightly light show, which illuminates the sky in a beautifully choreographed twinkling display.

Whatever the age of the kids in your party, Resort World Sentosa is a place that can keep them entertained for days. Thrilling theme parks, dazzling entertainment and a world-class aquarium make Sentosa a playground for all ages. Arrive in style via the Singapore Cable Car. Little ones can enjoy a splash about at Adventure Cove Waterpark, which features a lazy river, wave pool, and slides for bigger kids. Parents who need a bit of down time can indulge in the pampering setting of ESPA.

If architecture is of interest but you’ve seen enough of the jaw-dropping modern marvels in the more polished parts of town, make Jalan Besar your next stop. Alighting at Lavender MRT station, stroll into the streets that make up the Jalan Besar Heritage Trail. Make sure you take a guidebook or join a tour to get a real sense of the history of this former swampland. The stunning shophouses of Petain Road make for ideal photo opportunities, and you can sample another of the best cuppas in Singapore at Chye Seng Huat, a lovingly refurbished former hardware store on Tyrwhitt Road.
